Throughout its long history, all the way since antiquity until the very present day, life in Podgora went on with the sea and for the sea, without ever questioning the unigque harmony resulting from its inherent differences: from the beautiful mountain still keeping the secrets of ancient hamlets, through terraced vineyards, olive-groves and pastures that have been a pledge of Podgora¨s culture and well-being for centuries, all the way to the high seas attracting generations of its inhabitants, famous seamen and fishermen.
Podgora is a large resort southeast of Makarska with fresh water springs. Several defense towers, erected as protection against the Turks, are preserved, and there is also an old Baroque parish church. There are 220 berths. The marina is protected from winds by a long breakwater. Facilities include water and electricity hook ups. The marina is equipped with a crane.
