"Eyes, mind, and heart on what you can see to get to what you cannot see." That's what Fr. Jure Radić, the most famous researcher of Biokovo, said about this mystical mountain located in the hinterland of the Makarska Riviera.

Biokovo delights its visitors with its natural beauty, plant and animal species, and since 2020 the main attraction is the Skywalk, a small promenade entirely built of glass.

NOTE: Biokovo Nature Park and Skywalk have reopened in April 2023, and are ready to receive visitors..

Biokovo Nature Park location

The main entrance to the park is located in the hinterland of Podgora, a small coastal place located south of Makarska. The road to the entrance is good and it's easy to find and approach the park by car.

Price for visiting the park for an adult person is 8 euros. Bikers have a 40% discount, meaning the price for them is around 5 euros. Children under the age of 7 have free entrance.
Tickets are purchased exclusively online at the official website of Biokovo Nature park. You are supposed to arrive at the entrance to the park at least 10 minutes before chosen time and show the ticket, either in paper or digital form.

The park can be visited either by car, bike, motorcycle, hiking, or on foot. The most common way of a visit is by car, since the Biokovo Road is 23 kilometers long, and only those people who are in good physical condition can do it by walking, biking, or hiking.

Here is a list of things you should carefully read and be aware of before getting to the park:

  • Wear sneakers over flip-flops. You will feel more comfortable if you plan to walk alongside the mountain.

  • If you are planning to go by car (which most people do), be aware that Biokovo Road is a single-line road, requiring good driving skills. Make sure your car is in good service condition. You will be mostly driving in the first or second gear.
    Fill the fuel tank before arriving at the park. Be aware of the fact that the asphalt is cracked in many places making the road not really suitable for sports cars with lowered suspension.

  • Climbing the Biokovo road all the way to Sv Jure, the highest Biokovo peak takes about an hour.

  • Cars are let into the park in groups every hour. This means you may have to wait a bit at the entrance to the park, up to an hour.

  • Park is open every day from 6 am to 8 pm. The last entry to the park is possible at 7 pm. During winter months, Skywalk is closed to visitors. Check the updated information on working hours on Biokovo Park's official page.

  • Skywalk, the most famous attraction of the park is located on the 13th kilometer of Biokovo road. For some visitors who don’t want to go any further, this is the ultimate goal of the visit, while others go to the top of the mountain. It takes half an hour to reach Skywalk from the entrance to the park.

  • Along Biokovo Road you will notice several educational walking trails, so if you have time, visit them as well.

The most famous attraction of Biokovo Nature Park is the so-called Skywalk. It's a glass promenade located on the 13th kilometre of Biokovo Road. The promenade is around 25 meters long, and except for the amazing experience of walking on the glass, it features a beautiful view of Makarska Riviera.

As you can see from the photos, all the visitors are excited by this unique experience in Croatia. It's a total tourist hit of 2023, and a must-see place for many visitors of Split and Makarska Riviera.
