Brač, the largest of the Dalmatian islands, is a place of beautiful beaches, vineyards and olive groves. It is home to one of Croatia’s most famous beaches, Zlatni Rat, a peninsula of beach stretching into the sea. The island is known for its white stone quarries, used by the Romans to build amphitheatres, temples and palaces around Dalmatia, including the Diocletian Palace in Split.

Brač is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday, where you can unwind on the beach, go wine or olive oil tasting and soak up the island atmosphere. Neighbouring Šolta is a picturesque and tranquil little island with some tiny villages and rocky beaches to explore.

Brač towns

The town of Bol is a favourite with tourists because of its amazing Zlatni Rat beach. It’s an ever-changing beach peninsula jutting 400m into the sea and great for swimming, sunbathing and wind surfing. Bol itself is a cute harbour town with a 15th century palace and a 17th century fortress, overlooked by the 778m Vidova Gora mountain. It has a good range of restaurants and bars. Milna is a quiet fishing village with a lovely marina. It also has some nice pebbly beaches. The biggest town on Brač is Supertar, the main port entry where ferries arrive or yachts can dock and has medieval streets and a harbourside promenade.
