After spending a few hours in Orebić, we drove to Trpanj on the North West side of the Pelješac Peninsula to take the ferry to Ploče on the Makarska Riviera.
Because we wanted to take the ferry, we stayed only a couple of hours in Trpanj, but it seems a lovely place to spend a few days if you fancy some quiet time.
The village is full of charm and still has that small village feel, although it now brings travellers from all over the world, especially in the summer season.
It has restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarket and a beautiful seaside promenade. Also, it has many beaches in and around its area.
The most popular beaches are Pozora Beach, Divna, Duba, Luka, Jezero and Blace lagoon, which is famous for the therapeutic mud. Just bear in mind that some of it are not in the village, but nearby.
However, as Trpanj’s area is perfect for hiking and cycling, you can reach these beaches quite easily anyway.
What to see in Trpanj?
Gradina – on the hill right above the harbour was a fortress
St. Peter and Paul’s church
And if you want, you can visit the vineyards of the beautiful neighbour villages of Gornja and Donja Vrucica.
How to get there?
As I have mentioned before, we were driving from Orébic in the south of the peninsula. But I know there are a bus and a ferry that will take you from Orebić to Trpanj.
However, if you are in Dubrovnik, you can take a bus to the village or drive through the scenic route.
Also, you can take the ferry from Ploče, as we did.
We decided to take the Jadrolinija ferry, and it took 1 hour to arrive in Ploče, from where we were heading towards the Makarska Riviera, to spend the rest of our holiday.
I hope one day I can come back and explore further this beautiful peninsula.
How about you, have you been in Trpanj? Did you enjoy it? Please let us know!
Have a lovely day!
