Bacina Lakes, Dubrovnik
(4.4/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
The Baćina lakes are located in Dalmatia, Croatia. They are named after the inland town of Baćina close to the port city of Ploče. The lakes are part of a picturesque landscape and surrounded by mountains. They are situated between Makarska and Dubrovnik. It is a crypto-depression lake, with its bottom below the surface of the sea.DescriptionDespite its proximity to the sea and the permeable nature of the karst area, they are fresh water lakes. The seven lakes cover an area of 138 hectares and they are named Oćuša, Crniševo, Podgora, Sladinac, Vrbnik, Šipak and Plitko. Six of these lakes are linked. The largest lake is Oćuša and the deepest is the Crniševo (34 m). The lakes are connected with the sea and at times the water can be brackish, also the surface of the lakes lies 80 cm above sea level. Salty water is found at the bottom of the deepest lake Crnisevo.Lake Vrgorac located to the north of the Baćina lakes drains into the Adriatic Sea through them.At the turn of the century the Austro-Hungarian government built a tunnel to the sea. This led to the lowering of the lake level which has brought about biological changes. The tunnel currently runs underneath the Adriatic Highway.In recent times the lake has become a well-known hunting ground for grey mullet (Mugil saliens).

  • We saw Lakes (unknown to us) from above by car the way x Dubrovnik. We stopped immediately and found that there was a chance to do a one-hour excursion (40 kuna per person). HIKE SPECTACULAR wilderness on a wooden boat, beautiful why rustic ...! the guy who drove us was very good, in English explained every detail of the various Lakes. It felt great! few mosquitoes and other insects. I recommend this beautiful place and the hike! Barbara, bologna, italy

  • Baćina Lakes several lakes, interconnected rivers and straits. Water in Lakes is slightly brackish, as they communicate with the Adriatic Sea. So here you can find both freshwater and saltwater fish. Everything here disposes to rest unhurried-crystal clear waters, stunning scenery, air and wants to breathe and breathe. We swept on a boat on the Lake. Saw a lot of skiers on the Board with a paddle, can't remember what it's called)))
