Fish dishes are undoubtedly the most popular in Dalmatia - any type of grilled fish or seafood with the inevitable addition of olive oil are available in most places. In addition to the previous dishes, it is worth mentioning the mussels, which are an extraordinary delicacy when freshly harvested from the sea, and served with either spaghetti or on "buzara"style in aromatic gravy.

South Dalmatia, region where peninsula Peljesac is locatedd, is abundant in fish and seafood. The most important gastronomic part of the region is the Ston town and oyster harvesting bay of the same name. We recommend that one of the stops during your travel to or from camp Perna is certainly Mali Ston Bay and an oyster harvesting farm. Vineyards cover a large part of the Pelješac peninsula, and recently this part of the Croatian coast has become an extremely famous destination for wine tourism. The reason for the successful production of top wines from the Peljesac peninsula lies in the fact that this micro location is suitable for growing vines due to specific climate, geological and field conditions. Red wine called Plavac mali is the most famous wine sort in this destination. A one-day trip from the Perna camp can take you to the most famous wineries in Croatia, but also to smaller family wineries.
