Orebic is the main tourist and commercial center of the peninsula of Peljesac (Sabbioncello).
The city is now largely a tourist resort; few are still sailors or farmers. Many of the houses in the old hamlet have been refurbished in recent decades and have lost their original appearance. In the mountains over Orebic, there is an old cemetery with a 15th-century church and a Franciscan monastery, which was built next to the church. From here, you can have a wonderful view of the islands of Mljet and Korcula, and partially the Peljesac coast, but above all an amazing view of the open sea. Places to visit are also the Maritime Museum, the Captain's House and the Rector's Palace.
Orebic has many long sandy beaches and numerous bays with crystal clear sea, among which the most famous is that of Trstenica. Between Orebic and Kucisce in summer, you can find many surfers. The surroundings of Orebić are suitable for walks and excursions.
In the restaurants of Orebic you can taste the oysters and mussels of the local farms, and if you want to cool off on hot days, you can visit the many taverns and bars in the country. Orebic is famous for its red wines (Dingač, Postup and Peljesac) and the numerous cellars of the place will allow you to taste them on the spot.
The Peljesac peninsula, 65 km long and wide 6, has a very different landscape with woods, beaches, rocks, coves and gulfs.
