Lovište is a small port located at the very end of Pelješac peninsula opposite the island of Hvar. Because of moderate climate and many hours of sun, Lovište has had a tradition of tourism since 1935 when the first visits were recorded.
The local people are involved with fishing, growing olives and producing olive oil. There are many olive groves in the surroundings with over 10,000 olive trees. Lovište has kept its autochthony and has not turned to mass tourism. Instead, it offers cosy family boarding houses, motor camps, restaurants, taverns and bars.
The nearest town is Orebić, 17 kilometres away from Lovište. An asphalt road connects all towns on Pelješac.
Lovište is in the vicinity of all tourist destinations in Southern Dalmatia. The island of Korčula is only 15 minutes by ferry from Orebić and Dubrovnik is 100 kilometers from Pelješac peninsula or a two-hour drive.
The Pelješac peninsula is connected to Makarska Riviera by a ferry line over Trpanj and to the island of Mljet over Prapratno. Mljet has one of the most beautiful national parks.
