Makarska is an extremely popular tourist city. Boats can berth in the port, side of the coast. Berthing is possible anywhere where there are no regular lines that connect the islands and the mainland. In the far NW part of the harbor there is a petrol station, nearby shops, restaurants, bars, bank, market, ... In the port there is always a lot of traffic and therefore always a lot of waves. Port is well protected from the north wind. Southern and western winds in the port cause high waves. In this case, berthing in the port is not recommended.
