How to get to Pelješac?
If you are planning to visit Pelješac the easiest way to get to it is via highway A1. If you are coming from Split, you take highway A1 at node Dugopolje and exit at node Ravča and then proceed south via state road D8 straight to Pelješac.
In case you are interested in taking the scenic route you can drive from Split down the state road D8, but be aware that traffic jams are to be expected, especially during summer months. Please note that both routes (via A1 and D8) include crossing the international border with Bosnia and Herzegovina at Neum. If you want to avoid border crossing you can take the ferry from Ploče (situated on state road D8 and near exit from A1 at node Ravča) to Trpanj (Pelješac).
If you are traveling from Dubrovnik you can drive straight to Pelješac via state road D8 without any border crossing.
