Petrovac is a small town that has a mild Mediterranean climate with almost 300 sunny days a year, numerous bays, long beaches and small sandy coves, among the nicest in this region. This picturesque town is decorated with pine, olive, orange, lemon and bay trees.
Coast is rich in fish, greens, southern fruits and vegetables. Cheese in olive oil, prosciutto, olives, salads, fish and octopus, squid risotto, pašticada, and ruštule are just some of the specialties that you will try here.
Many agree, the biggest attractions are local beaches. Beach Lucice is probably the most attractive one. This sandy beach, located about 500 meters east from the city beach has the shape of a small bay. Its length is about 220 meters and is surrounded by cypress and pine trees. There are two restaurants on the beach. Another attractive beach, about 250m in length is Drobni Pijesak, located between Sveti Stefan and Rezevici. Its yellow-white sand gives the look of a real tropical beach. Surrounding Olive trees and Mediterranean bushes enhance the impression of being on a “wild beach”. Few restaurants and a natural water source make your stay even more pleasurable.
One of the peculiarities of Petrovac is a well-preserved mosaic floor from the third century. It is reveled in 1902. Some time later, a grave with antique coins and a vase made of green glass were discovered. Appearance of fragments with a triple figure fish at the same location is of an extraordinary importance. Many consider this to be a symbol of early Christianity.
Every year in late August, a festival called “Petrovac Night” is held. It is a night of music, wine, beer and complimentary grilled fish prepared by local fishermen. The event traditionally compliments a concert, featuring one of the well known music stars from the region, followed by spectacular fireworks.
