BAŠKA VODA TODAY
In the 1930s, the Sikavica brothers built the first Baškovo hotel, Slavija, which in 1936 received recognition and a gold medal at the World Exhibition in London for comfort, cuisine and good wines. The Society for the Beautification of the Town was founded in 1933, and the significant development of tourism began after the construction of the Adriatic Road. For the last twenty years, Baška Voda has been the most popular tourist destination in Central Dalmatia, and at the beginning of the 21st century, as one of the best organized tourist destinations on the Adriatic, it has been awarded the "Blue Flower" with a golden sign, the most prestigious tourist award in Croatia, for several years in a row.
In Baška Voda, you will enjoy the Mediterranean climate; in a mild, mostly wet winter and a dry, hot and sunny summer. Average monthly temperatures are: in July: – air 24.3 C °, – sea 25.1 C ° and in January: – air 8.3 C °, – sea 13.5 C °. Baška Voda has over 2,700 hours of sunshine per year and is located in one of the sunniest areas of the northern Mediterranean. On average, over 40 days a year the air temperature is above 30 °C, and only 7 days below 0 °C.
Local and seasonal winds help maintain a pleasant climate. Among them, the most prominent are the jugo (southeast wind) and bura (northeast wind), which blow throughout the year, but are especially frequent during the winter months, when their bioclimatic activity is at its peak. During spring and summer, the most specific wind is the mistral, which brings refreshing, and in summer much-desired cooled air from the sea. At night, the mistral is replaced by the burin (light northerly wind), which cools the overheated dry land.
The rainfall in this area also has Mediterranean characteristics. An average of 810 mm of rain per square meter falls here annually, but it is fairly well distributed, so that spring and especially summer are mostly dry, while the majority of precipitation is evenly distributed during autumn and winter.
Unlike the slopes of Biokovo, snow is an extremely rare phenomenon in the coastal area, and it is interesting to mention that in some years in May it is possible to enjoy the snow on the peaks of Biokovo and swim in the already quite warm sea on the same day.
