Pelješac (local Chakavian dialect: Pelišac; Italian: Sabbioncello) is a peninsula in southern Dalmatia in Croatia. The peninsula is part of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County and is the second largest peninsula in Croatia. From the isthmus that begins at Ston, to the top of Cape Lovišta, it is 65 km long. The name ‘Pelješac’ is most likely derived from the name of a hill above town of Orebić, which is Pelisac. This is a relatively new name for the peninsula. Throughout history other names have been used such as Stonski Rat, Puncta Stagni, Ponta di Stagno and Sabioncello. The main town of Peljesac is Ston which has large fortifications, built by the Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovnik) . They are the second longest walls in Europe and perhaps one of the oldest salt planes in this part of the world.
The Mali Ston Channel separates the peninsula from the Croatian “mainland”. The Strait of Pelješac is located at its far western end, and it divides the peninsula from the island of Korčula.
