Orebic - think grand captain's houses with tropical plants along the sea promenade, long pebbly/sandy beach, romance and fun. That is how we would sum up this wonderful and friendly but elegant small town on the south of the Peljesac peninsula, looking across to the island of Korcula. A great, centuries long maritime tradition has brought prosperity to Orebic, and is still remembered in the town's Maritime Museum.We would recommend Orebic to anyone, but it is especially suitable for families looking for an interesting but safe place to rest and play. The small town with seven fountains abounds with cafes and restaurants, easy to get to beaches, some of which have children's play areas. A car is not essential as everything is within walking distance. You will be spoilt for a choice of day trips - visit Dubrovnik, hop over to Mljet island and Korcula (15 minute ferry ride) for a magical experience, explore small pearly villages on the Peljesac peninsula, visit great wineries- one of them is in Orebic, the Korta Katarina which also has a good restaurant. All over Peljesac there are wineries producing one or other version of the red wine from the Plavac mali grape (Dingac, Postup, Plavac), white Posip and some rosé wines. It is home to some lovely beaches, the main one in Orebic is of fine pebbles and sand (Trstenica beach) but there are quite a few sandy ones. Serious windsurfing, kitesurfing, and paragliding is in nearby Viganj. Other activities are diving among shipwrecks, hiking cycling, walking up the mountain to the 15th century Franciscan monastery with great views.

Once a week from June to September the town offers wine and food tasting and there are performances of traditional Klapa music known as "The sounds of Dalmatia". There are music workshops in the local church. In July there is a shipbuilding workshop for children on the promenade in the town. If you are there in late September, there is a very enjoyable local championship in extreme and other sports, followed by special entertainment events (called Rozariada).Family Grljusic runs a rural inn in a village of Gurića Selo, a small place located high in the hills above Orebić. They established a climbing venue, Hrid, next to the village. The site offers seven climbing routes, and they will be adding more. Experienced climbers can try it themselves, while beginners can learn the basics of rock climbing accompanied with a professional guide.

Getting there. Catch a bus from Dubrovnik (2 hours 30 min) or go by hire car or taxi. If you are arriving from the direction of Split take the ferry from Ploce which takes you to Trpanj from where it is a short drive across the peninsular to Orebic.
