Gems of untouched nature, located in the immediate vicinity of the sea and along the delta of the Neretva River, with which they form the natural habitat of waterfowl, wild ducks, black foxes and other species. Baćina lakes consist of seven interconnected lakes 5 to 35 meters deep.
The lakes are rich in fish, especially the “cipli” fish and the eel. They are abundant in clean springs originating from the mountain massifs, so they are used to supply drinking water to the inhabitants of Ploče, Gradac and the surrounding villages. In winter, the lake level rises over 2.5 meters and the tunnel below the Adriatic highway drains excess water into the sea. The summers are mild and warm, full of smells and colors, enriched by the singing of songbirds and frog crickets, ideal for quiet vacations, walks and nature excursions. The lakes are, on average, warmer than the sea, so they are comfortable for swimming, boating and surfing.
