Beaches of Peljesac

Best beaches on Peljesac

Peljesac is well known for its pebbly beaches that can be found on its shores. Here is a list of best beaches around Peljesac that I visited and can assure you these are indeed best beaches on the peninsula – keep reading:


Lovely south facing bay located just about around 3.5 km away from Ston, Prapatno beach is nested in the very heart of this bay. It is a small pebbly beach, about 250 m long, encircled by large rocky areas from both sides. As the beach is south facing it is not protected from south winds, particularly Siloko, however, Maestral and Bura wind are hardly sensed here.

The sea here is deep blue and of turquoise colours while water near the shore is very shallow which is great for families with small children. There are numerous mature olive and pine trees in the bay and near the beach, so nice shade is never far away although beach umbrellas are always recommended to have handy if you wish to spend all day on the very seashore.

I took the above photo of Prapratno beach from the main Peljesac road that is passing above the bay, where on this great vista spot, a nice little restaurant/cafe is located. We could see people swimming down at the beach, my guess is they stay at Prapratno Campsite.


Trstenik Beach at Peljesac

Trstenik Beach – situated in the very heart of the village, this long and wide sandy beach is popular among visitors and locals. The beach is very long and fairly wide, very popular with visiting families with small children and people living nearby. Sheltered by most of the winds (except Siloko) this is a fantastic place to spend a day or whole summer holidays particularly if you have small children. (map marker E) – read more and see more photos


Divna Beach at Peljesac

Divna Beach – another beautiful pebbly beach on the northern coast of Peljesac, facing the mainland, just a few kilometres from Trpanj. The beach is situated in a small, picturesque bay that features this lovely beach. The sea here is absolutely clean and clear, ideal for small children and families. A great hidden place for a day trip or indeed a longer stop-over. A truly magnificent spot. (map marker F) – read more and see more photos + video
