Orebić is situated on the southwestern part of the Peljesac peninsula at the bottom of the St.  Elijah’s hill. It is a cradle of sea captains and sailors, whose rich tradition is kept at the Maritime Museum. The following cultural monuments can be visited in Orebić: the Franciscan monastery with a lookout, the church of Our Lady and a museum, Skvar, the Captain’s house, the Rector's Palace, the Captain's Cemetery and the winery. The town offers a wide range of tourist attractions. We recommend reserving your accommodation in one of the hotels or in a privately owned apartment. The Trstenica bay offers  a large sandy beach, and if you're searching for solitude you will find many rocky coves and bays with small beaches in the vicinity.
