On the border between central and southern Dalmatia

Sutikla campsite is also special because it is located in the heart of the city. It is on Sutikla Point in the city of Podgora, at the southernmost end of central Dalmatia:

  • 9km from Makarska
  • 70km from Split
  • 143km from Dubrovnik

Look at everything Sutikla Point means to locals, sailors, and fishermen:

  • the natural border between central and southern Dalmatia
  • an important landmark for coastal sailing
  • many fish swim in the current from the river Neretva to Sutikla Point
  • distance is measured to or from Sutikla (in relation to another point)
  • on spring and summer mornings, Sutikla is used to determine how much more sun there is until noon
  • Sutikla Point is the first place the sun shines upon from behind Biokovo
