Active tourism

Central Dalmatia is an ideal place to enjoy active tourism and sports. The coast offers great possibilities to enjoy water sports. Bol on the island of Brač is an internationally known destination for surfers and the best place for surfing on the Adriatic. A landward wind called the Maestral blows in the channel between the islands of Brač and Hvar every afternoon, ideal for surfing, while there is a lighter breeze in the morning appropriate for beginners, making Bol ideal for those who are just getting their start in the sport.

The opportunities for paragliding (BaŠka Voda, Brela) and hand gliding are excellent for the adventure-minded looking to descend from the heights of Biokovo or Vidova Gora to Brać. The entire mainland part of this region has cycling routes as do all the central Dalmatian islands. There are excellent conditions for adventure tourism in this area on account of the proximity of Dalmatinska Zagore, the Dalmatian highlands. Only 30 km from the shore, this green heart of Dalmatia is home to gentle valleys through which the Cetina, Jadro and Žrnovica rivers pass. These mighty rivers are, both in their slower mainstream and their rapids, daily gathering places for lovers of canyoning, canoe safaris, rafting and free climbing on the rock faces rising above them.

This area is known for its long and gentle horseback riding trails. The sport of riding is offered at several riding clubs in Sinj and it environs, available to the more experienced and to complete beginners and children on the full bred horses of private riding schools and agro-tourism homesteads.
