Around an hour from Split, Brac is the largest island in Dalmatia and the third-largest in Croatia. The two main towns on the island are Supetar and Bol, each with its own unique feel.
On the north coast, Supetar is the island’s largest town and the main port of entry, with frequent ferries to and from Split. However, this former fishing village retains a laidback, family-friendly feel with shallow pebble beaches and medieval streets dotted with quaint local cafes and boutiques, perfect for a relaxed stroll.
The livelier Bol on the south coast is overlooked by the imposing Vidova Mountain, the highest point in the Adriatic. It is also home to the iconic Zlatni Rat (“Golden Horn”) Beach, which features a 400-metre fine pebble promontory jutting out into the turquoise sea, which changes shape depending on the wind, tides and currents. The crystal-clear and calm waters are ideal for swimming, snorkelling, diving and windsurfing, whilst the lush pine backdrop provides respite from the sun.
Other must-visit sites on the island include the pretty fishing village of Sumartin, the stunning stonemason village of Pucisca, and the romantic harbour town of Postira.
Brac is also known for its famous white stone, which was used to construct the Diocletian Palace in Split, the White House in Washington DC, and parliament buildings in Vienna, Berlin and Budapest.
