Because the main Omis beach is located at the mouth of Cetina river, the mixture of salt and fresh water makes the sea bed of the Omis beach an ideal location for all kinds of shellfish. You will commonly see people walking on their knees in the shallow water, sifting through the sand with their hands, looking for the shellfish to prepare for dinner. There is nothing more authentic in Dalmatia as a glass of wine paired with the freshly caught shellfish for light Mediterranean dinner.
