Trstenik is a settlement on the southern side of the Pelješac peninsula, confined by the vineyards of Dingač on the western coasts and looking to Žuljana on the eastern side. A serpentine road starting on Pelješac's main road goes down to Luka Trstenik Bay, where the inhabitants of the then hillside village moved at the end of the 19th c. It was during this Austro-Hungarian era when the breakwater was built up to provide a harbor for the ships taking Dingač wines as their cargo. Since 2010 besides the serpetine road from north Trstenik can accessed on an asphalt road from the western side, from the Potomje-Dingač tunnel, too.

The 300 meters long gravel beach of the village occupies the whole northern shore of the bay. Beyond this large beach, east of the place, towards Žuljana several, mainly tiny gravel beaches are hidden by the rocky coastline, as well. So, if instead of the populated town beach someone prefers secluded and more intimate beaches - they will certainly find them.

Quite a few private apartments and rooms are available for rent in Trstenik - these are the only option for accommodation in the village. Camp Perla, which was located east of the village, closed its doors years ago - camps can be found in nearby places like Žuljana, Trpanj and Drače. During the season several restaurants and bars are ready to welcome their guests on the northern and western side of the bay. A small grocery store is also at the vacation makers' convenience.

The pioneer of world-class Californian wines, Croatian born Miljenko Mike Grgich returning to his motherland bought land around Trstenik and established his Croatian headquarters in Trstenik at the location previously known as Karaula. The Grgich cellar is open to visitors, too. Before the construction of the ferryport in Prapratno Trstenik used to be the departure location of the ferry to Mljet Island. While ferries leave the Trstenik harbor no more, departing the mole excursion boats take passengers to Mljet every day during the season.
