Croatia’s Most Scenic Seaside Drive

The Adriatic Highway –
Jadranska Magistrala


alt text

A scenic drive that is truly one of the best in the world, the Adriatic Highway in southern Croatia is a stunning rollercoaster ride of a road.

If you love scenic byways, don’t miss this one – it offers a mind-boggling amount of car-stoppingbeauty. The route is often compared to ­California’s famous Highway 1 between San Francisco and Los Angeles. But with its serpentine twists and sheer drops into the sea, the drive is not for the faint of heart and does require some skill behind the wheel.

However, those who do head out on the highway will be rewarded with a fun drive and stunning views across the sparkling sea and some of Croatia’s hidden gems.

Road Trip Tip

Located just off the route in the town of Brela, the SENTIDO Bluesun Berulia is a perfect starting point for an unforgettable road trip. Head south from the hotel and enjoy an amazing drive down the Makarska Riviera, a stunning 60 km stretch of scenery through one of the most famous resort regions in Croatia.

On The Map

The Adriatic Highway (Jadranska Magistrala in Croatian) is the highway D8 (part of European route E65). It runs from Rijeka and Dubrovnik and is Croatia’s ultimate seaside highway. Whether weaving its way round stunning turquoise bays or skirting towering mountains, there’s hardly a boring stretch in its entire 650-kilometre length.
