"Eyes, mind and heart on what you can see to get to what you cannot see". That's what Dr 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.

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 kilometres 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 do any 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 on 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 opened 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 for 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 kilometre 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 the 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 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 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 2020, and must-see place for many visitors of Split and Makarska Riviera.

As in all other public places, epidemiological measures need to be adhered to in the park to keep all visitors healthy and safe. Masks in the park are not mandatory, because it is an open space.
It is necessary to keep a distance of 1.5 meters between people who arrive at the park together. If you decide to visit the restaurant inside the park, called Vrata Biokova, you need to disinfect your hands.
