Vacation in Brač


Intro Croatie

Soak up some culture by the sea

 

Croatia is a land of contrasts with an impressive heritage. The north of the country shares many cultural similarities with Central Europe, whilst its coastline feels closer to the Mediterranean. It is a popular destination for holidaymakers looking for a holiday with a bit of variety. The Croatian Riviera boasts around 5,800 kilometres of beaches and coastline, including those of its 1,185 islands, which are surrounded by the blue waters of the Adriatic and offer a wide range of fun seaside activities. Explore Zagreb, the capital and cultural centre of the country, Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic", or Split, the commercial and cultural hub of central Dalmatia. Each of these cities has landscapes as fascinating as their history, and are just waiting to be discovered!

Intro 01

Simple pleasures on an unspoilt island

 

Brač, the largest of Dalmatia's islands, lies in the crystal waters just off the coast of Split. Its culture, history and traditions are a faithful and authentic representation of Croatia as a whole. Its stunningly beautiful landscapes are a succession of enchanting coves, authentic villages, lush green valleys and vineyards. The island is dominated by the peak of Vidova Gorat, the highest point on the Croatian islands, and the view from the top is simply sensational. Brač is also home to Zlatni Rat beach, which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

This charming little coastal town lies on the southern coast of Brač. It has a pretty harbour lined with restaurants, bars and shops, as well as numerous seaside and sporting opportunities. Walk in the shade of the long promenade from the port of Bol to reach the famous Zlatni Rat beach, which forms a golden horn surrounded on either side by the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic. Bol is also the starting point for some of the most beautiful hiking trails that lead to Vidova Gorat, the highest point in the Adriatic. Distance from the airport: 15 km.

Many boats from Split drop anchor in the port of Supetar, the island's economic and cultural centre.

Must-do & Must-see - our suggestions

Must-do

  • In Bol, opt for a tasting of Plavac Mali at the Jako Vino winery to try this red grape variety that is grown on the island of Brač. The winery was built in 1903 in the region where Dalmatia's first wine cooperative was established, and has since been expertly restored to welcome visitors and offer tastings. 
  • In Postira, visit the olive oil museum to discover the secrets of this wonderful product. Passionate olive growers will tell you all about the profession, production process, tools, transport and storage methods, and will even offer you a tasting session. 
  • Climb Vidova Gora, which is the highest point in the Adriatic at 778 metres. The hiking trail from Bol follows the Vela Staza signposts through beautiful scenery and up to the summit. It's a demanding hike, but it’s worth it for the magnificent views over Zlatni Rat beach and the neighbouring islands.

 

Must-see 

  • Discover the neighbouring islands of Hvar and Biševo. Hvar, often described as one of the most beautiful islands in the world, boasts wild landscapes where fields of vines rub shoulders with lavender plains and sublime beaches. In Biševo, you'll fall under the spell of the Blue Grotto, a natural wonder that’s not to be missed.
  • The Blaca Hermitage is a particularly interesting place for lovers of history. This monastery of Franciscan hermits, founded in the 16th century, served as an astronomical observatory before being transformed into a museum dedicated to life in a hermitage and exhibiting all sorts of relics of Croatia's rich heritage, such as paintings, period furniture and armour...
  • The marvellous Zlatni Rat beach, also known as the Golden Horn because of its unique curved shape and the golden colour of its pebbles, is located in the municipality of Bol. When exposed to winds and currents, it takes on different shapes, even curling in on itself under the influence of the strong Jugo wind.
