Holidays to Brac, Croatia

Overview

Brac is the largest of Croatia’s Dalmatian islands, located just off the coast from Split. Unlike the touristy neighbouring islands of Hvar and Korcula, Brac is still pretty undeveloped and therefore attracts visitors looking for a more authentic slice of Croatia. Brac has four ferry ports and great ferry links so it’s an ideal base to do a bit of travelling around; you can be in Hvar or Split in under an hour.

Beaches

Brac is most famous for Zlatni Rat in Bol – a spectacular v-shaped beach that stretches far out into the ocean. The beach is known as one of the most beautiful in Croatia and features endlessly on postcards, holiday brochure covers and posters. Despite being pebbled it’s a great sunbathing spot, and is backed by lush green forest. It’s also popular with windsurfers, and the sea is often dotted with their brightly-coloured sails.

Things to Do

Brac is a heaven for those who love the great outdoors – Brac has miles of beautiful countryside to explore. Brac’s highest mountain, Vidova Gora, can be climbed in 2-3 hours and you’ll be rewarded at the top with views amazing island views. Watersports such as kitesurfing and windsurfing are popular activities here, as are extreme sports; there’s even an extreme sports festival in July that anybody can get involved in.

Food and Drink

Brac has miles of open countryside used for farming and crops; they’re particularly well-known for producing olives, figs and great wine. Many visitors book tours of the island’s vineyards that usually include tastings, or you can sample a bottle at a local restaurant, paired with some delicious Croatian food. Croatia’s cuisine has influences from many surrounding countries but Brac’s speciality is lamb, either stewed or cooked and stuffed.
