An Active Vacation

For all those who don't just want to relax on vacation, this area offers more than enough. Even if you don't find something in Podgora, you will find it in nearby Makarska.

In Podgora, there is an active Birgmaier Sub Diving Centre, which offers diving training, diving trips to about a dozen locations around Podgora, and, for those who are more experienced, diving equipment rental.

If you prefer to stay above the surface, there are also plenty of water sports to choose from. These include tubing or banana riding, jet ski or speedboat rental for excursions to nearby Brač or Hvar, and for those who are old-fashioned there is always swimming, water polo, and picigin.

For those who want to stay above the surface in the truest sense of the word, we recommend parasailing. Aqua-Sport and Atlantic Jet will be happy to rent you a parachute, hook it up to a speedboat, and off you’ll go, high up in the air.

Biking and hiking trails can lead you to other places in the surrounding area, so why not take a biking or hiking trip to Tučepi or Baška voda?

Near Podgora, you’ll also find paintball, zip-lining, bungee jumping, rafting, and many other adrenaline sports.
