Orebić is one of the dreamiest places I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Instead of sharing recommendations of what to do while you’re there, I wanted to share the typical day that we experienced during our stay. It’s hard to adequately capture the relaxing energy of the place, so you’ll just have to visit and see for yourself. There’s something about daily rituals that feel extra precious when traveling and we really appreciated the ability to slow down and feel grateful for all of the little things in our day-to-day routine.
A typical day in Orebić begins by waking up and heading straight for the patio to greet the day. A leisurely wake-up and a homemade omelet with local vegetables and cevapi (Balkan sausage), mixed in. After packing beach bags, it’s off to Croccantino in search of an almond milk latte and the best view of crystal blue ocean. Post caffeination, a walk past the harbor to settle in for a day of swimming. Back and forth between floating in the Adriatic, and soaking in rays on the beach with the company of a good book. Hodge podge lunches are made up of diced cucumber, slices of prosciutto, olives, and whatever else is on hand. All track of time is lost. When we’re done with the sun – a trip back to the shade of patio for some reading, writing, or a siesta. A rinse in the outdoor shower and then out for dinner, enjoying the sunset on our stroll. Catch of the day with a side of Croatian hospitality. Off to sleep with the satisfaction knowing that it will all repeat tomorrow.
