Secret Dalmatia Oyster Picnic in Ston

One of Croatia's Most Famed Delicacy

Ston and Mali Ston are home to a very valued, authentic and delicious Croatian product. Embarking on an oyster tasting picnic in Ston is much more than the name implies, it is experiencing the essence of Dalmatia on a platter.
Oysters, mussels, wine and olive oil, all offering an explosion of tastes for your palate. It is widely known that the Ston oyster is an aphrodisiac and has medicinal features, however the most exciting part of this experience is discovering the oyster beds in the nearby coves by private motor boat, watching them harvested straight from the sea, and learning how to open them on your own before tasting the delicious meat inside with just a sprinkle of lemon juice.
Your host's family has been harvesting oysters for many generations. The knowledge and skills necessary have been passed on over the ages, and even with the advancement of technology, the process itself has not changed much. Feed your curiosity about oyster breeding, how they are formed, what they eat and even what their enemies are in the submarine world, learn directly from a local expert before retreating to a private island where you will relax in the shade of your private beach and enjoy mouthwatering oysters, mussels, olive oil and wine.
This tour compliments with a walk on the Ston walls, whether the 1 hour or the 20 minutes version of fantastic vistas, birds-eye views of the salt-works and red town roofs, and a dramatic climb and descent. And a wine tasting at the Miloš vinery really compliments with everything every time!
