The city of Ploče is the youngest city on the Adriatic coast, and next to the port of Rijeka is the largest cargo port in Croatia. The city is situated several kilometres west of the mouth of the Neretva River, at the point where its delta touches the karst mountain regions. The most important characteristic of Ploče is that it is at the end of the centuries long natural course of the Neretva River Valley, which ties the central regions of the neighbouring Republic of Bosnia Herzegovina with the Adriatic Sea.
The city is also positioned at the half-way point between Split and Dubrovnik on the important Adriatic highway. Near to the city are the Baćina lakes, situated along the spur of the Biokovo mountain range. There are regular ferry connections between Ploce and Trpanj on the Pelješac peninsula and train connections to Mostar.
