March 14, 2022 – What if some of Croatia’s best and most authentic experiences were made more accessible? Join the CROMADS Travel Club at this year’s Ston Oyster Festival.
Croatia is a unique place in many ways. But one of the things I’ve come to appreciate over the years is how many amazing (and incredibly local) things there are to do in this country, many of which are barely known outside of the region.
We’d like to change that and make the best of these experiences more accessible to expats, digital nomads, and yes, locals too.
Having been an expat to many countries, I know how easy it is to get caught up in the expat lifestyle, surrounded by other expats and knowing little of the surrounding county. The CROMADS Travel Club aims to address this problem, if only a little.
Hand-picked events showcasing the best of authentic Croatia, often experiences not even locals know too much about. Check out the first CROMADS Travel Club in Velika Gorica, for a truly GINcredible opening event.
Then, the incredible world of Ston and Mali Ston, and their fabulous oysters. Join the CROMADS Travel Club on a fabulous day out at the Ston Oyster Festival, departing from Split.
Dive into the world of oysters
What: Oyster Festival
When: March 19, 2022
Or: Ston & Mali Ston, located on the Pelješac peninsula in southern Croatia.
Celebrating the return of the popular Oyster Festival after a two-year hiatus.
Each year, the month of March is expected by many as the time when the freshest and tastiest oysters will be tasted straight from the sea. Wine, salt and oysters, you can taste all three during the Oyster Festival.
Although traditionally held in Mali Ston, the festival will take place this year in three different locations, Brijesta, Luka and Bistrina. Three places where oysters are actually grown. At each location, visitors have the chance to taste oysters, muscle and other shellfish as well as premium wines from the Pelješac region at promotional prices.
We will start our tour from Split and head to the Ston area where we will stop at one of the promoted oyster tasting spots. Here, as a group, we will treat ourselves to an oyster tasting while enjoying local wine and live music.
You will also have free time to sit down and soak up the festival atmosphere or enjoy a pleasant lunch at one of the local restaurants making the most of the local dishes at promotional prices.
From here we travel a short distance to Ston, so all can enjoy a short stop to explore the village and learn about its local traditions and history. Then, capture the quaint charm of Mali Ston before beginning our drive back to Split. These two short stops will leave you wanting more as you learn why a longer visit to Ston is a must on your future itinerary.
2022 is shaping up to be an exceptional year for oysters, an incredible time to immerse yourself in the world of oysters, the freshest and tastiest oysters in Europe. We look forward to having you with us!
