While the Peljesac Peninsula is growing in popularity as a destination, it still remains somewhat of a hidden gem compared to the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Visitors to the area will be blown away by the beautiful hills and coast line that offer an abundance of gastronomic pleasure. Whether its local wines, delicious olive oil or freshly caught seafood, Peljesac is a foodie’s heaven.
The walled town of Ston is a must on a visit to the area, filled with history and home to some of the best oysters in Europe. A Taste of Travel blog has featured Ston and its’ ‘Astonishing oysters’, singing the town’s praises, ”The peninsular is a rich and fertile area…Whilst salt is still important, grape production and oyster farming now contribute to the area’s reputation.”

Memories of Sydney’s best came flooding back but a comparison was hard.Next, a bowl of seashells buzara.White mussels, black mussels and clams cooked in the traditional way with tomato, garlic, wine and parsley. Perfect with a glass of the local wine!”
