"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 are closed for visitors till June 2022 due to Biokovo Road reconstruction.

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 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 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.
