Anyone who has visited the Makarska Riviera certainly knows that the view of the Makarska Riviera is spectacular from every angle. If you look at the Makarska Riviera from the island of Brac. Especially when the weather is clear and sunny, you will see the mighty and massive mountain Biokovo rising directly from the sea. Makarska Riviera is a masterpiece - a work of nature created by the mountains and the sea and every nature lover, every photographer, enthusiast, artist, Instagram influencer wants to see and experience it.
Biokovo has been known for decades as a tourist attraction, the part of the mountain that belongs to the protected nature park is an important part of hiking and walking routes. If you are not a professional mountaineer, do not go to Biokovo alone. There you will find all kinds of terrain, from pine forests to meadows, climbing rocks and sharp karst areas with sinkholes, caves and caverns. That is why it is one of the most beautiful and dangerous mountains in Europe. From July 2020, a new attraction on Biokovo was officially opened, and that is Skywalk - a transparent glass platform that protrudes 12 meters from the mountain cliff. It is located at an altitude of about 1200 meters, but do not be afraid - Skywalk is tested and, although it is built of glass and seems fragile, it is completely safe and solid.
Do not be afraid
The main security test was carried out by the fire brigades of Podgora and Tučepi. Using a large amount of water, gauge bearing capacity tests were performed. For safety reasons, only 30 people are allowed to walk Biokovo Skywalk at a time, so be patient if you visit Biokovo during the season. You will love this experience: walking on the glass floor, looking straight under your feet towards the village of Tucepi on the coast. In front of you: a view to remember - Makarska on your right, Podgora on your left and all the islands in front. If you are incredibly lucky, and you are there on a really clear day, you may even see the Italian coast across the Adriatic.
We have a few ideas about Skywalk
• a romantic trip for two, to see who is braver
• visit other sites of Biokovo, you will not walk around this lookout all day, and Biokovo is quite spectacular
• if you are adventurous, rent a scooter or moped and go with friends, but be careful, the roads on Biokovo are really narrow and dangerous.
After 13 kilometers of driving this view is your reward
