Things to do in Brac

Bol: The beautiful town of Bol is one of the focal points on Brac and is considered to be one of the Adriatic’s most charming spots. Atmosphere oozes from the maze of streets and alleyways and stunning architecture including the Dominican Monastery and Museum. It’s enhanced by a marble-paved promenade, fringed with subtropical gardens. Bol is of course famous for another reason: Zlatni Rat beach. A stretch of smooth white pebbles extends for about 500m with pine trees providing shade and rocky cliffs rising sharply behind the beach. Regular buses depart from Supetar to Bol.

Supetar: The altogether quieter affair of Supetar, is one of the region’s best kept secrets. A quick 50 minute ferry ride from Split and you’ll be immersed in typical Croatia: olive groves, orchards, pine woods and an unforgettable coastline. Kick back and enjoy the relaxed way of life. The harbour is delightfully attractive whilst the medieval streets add atmosphere. A number of excellent beaches are within close proximity to Supetar as well. Given Supetar that is only a short hop from Split you’ll be spoilt for choice on how to spend your time.

Explore the Island: The island boasts an array of stunning villages including Postira, Pucisca and Lovrecina, offering tranquil retreats amidst beautiful historical settings. These charming spots are just waiting to be explored, adding that extra little something to an already perfect escape. It’s easy to get to these little havens from Supetar, as all buses on Brac start and end in Supetar and are operated by Autotrans.

Be active: Brac is an excellent location for outdoor types, with an abundance of marked hiking and biking trails which weave around the island. Take the 2 hour trail up to Vidova Gora mountain (pictured) peak and you will be rewarded by breath-taking views of the Island and its near neighbours. For water lovers, Bol is celebrated as the best spot for wind-surfing, while at Potocine beach, kayaking and diving are popular.

Excursions from Brac

Split: The bustling city of Split is only 35 minutes away and makes for a great day out from Trogir. Explore the UNESCO Protected Diocletian Roman Palace, one of the best-preserved Roman buildings in existence. It is a maze of delightful restaurants, bars, museums, galleries and ancient churches. To get to Split from Supetar, there are around 12 ferries per day in the summer, taking 50 minutes or you can visit on an organised excursion. For more information on Split, click here.

Krka National Park: Covering 142 square metres, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It’s famous for its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk, a collection of 17 waterfalls that range in height of 45 metres. Unlike Plitvice National Park, you can swim here, an ideal way to cool off in the summer sun. If you haven’t a hire car, to get to Krka N.P from Split, take one of the regular buses to Sibenik (90 minutes), then take a local bus (15 minutes) to Skradin, a town where you enter the park (entrance fee payable), or there’s a wide range of organised excursions available.

Hvar Island: Regularly voted as one of the top islands to visit in Europe, the fantastic. Hvar Town is the place to go, medieval walls surround the beautifully ornamented gothic palaces on the winding stone streets, while in the bay, luxury yachts dock near the stylish bars and cafes. Visit the Pakleni Islands, the archipelago just in front of the Hvar Town for some downtime in the sun. Connections from Brac to Hvar aren’t great for day trips, so you’d have to take the ferry to Split and then the catamaran down to Hvar Town or visit as part of an excursions.
