D512, a Croatian road rewarded with awesome coastal views

D512 state road is one of the most beautiful roads on the Adriatic coastline of Croatia. The road is 30.6 km (19.0 mi) long and carries substantial tourist traffic in summers. It's one of thebest coastal drives in the world. Minor landslides are relatively frequent there.

This narrow, winding hill road starts at Makarska, one of the best tourist destinations on the Croatian coast and ends near the Road 62 in Vrgorac, a town in the Split-Dalmatia County.

The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. The road is rewarding with awesome coastal views, but demanding driver's full attention at the same time. This cliff-side road still parts the steep hills standing sentry over the sea. The most dangerous sections of the road due the landslides are being bypassed by several tunnels.
