The town of Baćina is located in the southern part of Croatia in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. This is an area 2.5 kilometres west of the city of Ploče, situated along the slopes of the Biokovo mountain range and is exactly at the half-way point between Split and Dubrovnik on the Adriatic Highway.
The Baćina lakes are located near the town of Baćina. This is a series of six connected and one separate lake: Oćuša, Crniševo, Podgora, Sladinac, Vrbnik, Šipak and Plitko lakes.
Their depths ranging from 5 to 35 metres, they are freshwater lakes and their source is directly connected to the sea.
The lakes themselves are the result of a cryptodepression. A 2 kilometre tunnel was dug from the Vrgorac fields to the Baćinska lakes in order to drain the Vrgorac and Staševac fields from excess water in order to prevent flooding.
