Oyster picnic in Ston

Taste the original European delicacy

The peninsula of Pelješac and the Croatian coast enclose the bay of Mali Ston. It is here that river Neretva and many underground freshwater sources flow into the Adriatic, diluting it into an environment perfect for growing mussels and oysters.

This unique potential of the bay of Mali Ston was recognized as early as the Roman times. The bay was officially protected as a Special marine reserve in 1983, preserving its scenery intact to the present day. With this backdrop, tasting the oysters fresh from the sea is a one-of-a-kind treat for all lovers of the famed aphrodisiac!
Your host Denis is a local. He will take you on his boat to his oyster farm, where you will learn about the demanding art of growing oysters and their low maintenance relatives - mussels. Try to open them yourself and enjoy their succulence, with a drip of lemon. Continue on to a private island. Here, Denis will prepare the mussels you just picked. Preparing them bouzzara style, he will add nothing but his olive oil, homemade white wine and some herbs. With nobody else around, and nothing but intact nature, savour these moments to their fullest, as this is as close as it gets to a heaven on Earth.
