Unlike other parts of southern Dalmatia which have been wholly given over to tourism, the Peljesac Peninsula retains a thriving agricultural business especially in winemaking. Dingac and Postup wine from Peljesac are appreciated throughout Croatia and Peljesac vineyards are open for visits. Do sample the farmed oysters and shellfish from Ston that attract gastonomes from afar.
Peljesac offers myriad opportunities for outdoor activities, especially if you can appreciate a good beach. Peljesac has more than its share of sandy beaches: Trstenik, Prapatno, Trstenica beaches are all on sheltered coves.
Orebic is famed for its long, sandy Trstenica beach and makes a good base to explore the peninsula and neighbouring Korcula Town.From Orebic you can easily reach Viganj which has some of the best windsurfing in Croatia off its pebble shores. Climbers can test their skills on 961m high Smijino Brdo (Sveti Ilija), also accessible from Orebic.
There are no flights to the peninsula; the nearest airport is Dubrovnik Airport . If you're coming from Dubrovnik in the south you can simply drive onto the Peljesac peninsula in about 45 minutes. Visiting the Peljesac Peninsula makes a good day trip from Dubrovnik. Coming from Split in the north, the best way is to take the ferry from Ploce to Trpanj. Frequent Jadrolinija ferries make the short trip. Plans are afoot to connect the peninsula by bridge with the mainland but that won't happen for a few more years, if ever.
