ABOUT HOLIDAY

WHERE AND WHAT FROM 22nd TO 28th OF AUGUST

The best sea of Croatia: the island of Brac

Brac Island (pronounced “Bratch”) is the longest and most elevated island in central Dalmatia.

Despite its proximity to Split, Brac is less touristed than the glittering islands of Hvar and Korcula further south. No celebrities or tycoons glide their yachts into Brac harbors nor do politicians stroll village steets. For that reason, it provides an excellent window into authentic island life, particularly in the interior.

Brac also has an extensive and fascinating history as it has been inhabited since Neolithic times.

Brac is a relatively dry island; you won’t find the lush vegetation of, say Korcula or Hvar, but there are some lovely spots along the rocky shores and great scuba diving from Lucice Bay.

Don’t miss the olive oil in Brac! The olives are of a rare variety called buhavica and there’s over a half-million trees. Olive cultivation dates back to the Venetian years. Back in 1655 the Venetian senate insisted that the island be carpeted with olive trees and imposed fines upon anyone with the temerity to damage the trees.

The highest peak on Brac Island is Vidova Gora at 778m which is the highest peak on the Adriatic islands. The interior of Brac is mostly small valleys and fields while on higher ground, north of Vidova Gora you’ll find an endemic species of pine. Along the coast the woods are mainly Aleppo pine.

Beautiful views of the sunlit sea extend from the top of Vidova gora, as well as scenes of the playful mountain hair of the Makarska coastal area, ruffled by the waves and above all the glorious sun.

The island is known for its fishing and agricultural products with the locals producing good wine, olive oil, figs, nectarines and other fruits.
But the main export is, and has been from ancient times, the famous Brac stone from which many buildings in the world have been built, including the White House in Washington D.C., Berlin’s Reichstag, and the Catholic cathedral in Liverpool, as well as Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the cathedral in Trogir, closer to home.

The two main resorts are Supetar, the capital and Bol, near the Golden Horn Zlatni Rat beach, one of Croatia’s most famous beaches in the Adriatic.

Borak Hotel*** is only 10 minutes away on foot from the famous Zlatni rat Beach in Bol, which can be reached via the promenade next to the sea which is hidden in a lush pine forest. The Hotel has its own beach only 50 metres away.

How to get to Brac

By airplane

The Brač Airport (14 km from Bol)
Regular flights during summer. For more information, go to www.croatiaairlines.com

By ferry from Split

Due to its proximity to the mainland and Split in particular, Brac is one of the most accessible islands in the Croatian Adriatic with routes to several of its major towns.
There is a very frequent car ferry route (journey time: 50 minutes) that operates from Split to Supetar on the north of the island with an even higher frequency during summer.
There is a year-round daily catamaran service from Split to Bol, on the south side of the island, which takes 55 minutes. This catamaran then sails on to Jelsa on the island of Hvar.
In summer, a once-a-week catamaran runs from Split to Milna on western Brac, with a journey time of 30 minutes.
All of the above ferries are run by the main ferry company in Croatia, Jadrolinija.
Kapetan Luka also operate a catamaran service from Split to Milna on Brac that then sails on to Hvar Town, Korcula, Mljet and Dubrovnik. This service operates 3/4 times a week from early May to the end of October, with daily sailings June to September inclusive. This catamaran is very useful as it’s the only connection from Dubrovnik, Mljet and Korcula to Brac!

By ferry from Makarska

Another service to the island of Brac from the mainland run by Jadrolinija is its car ferry from Makarska to Sumratin on eastern Brac. This route operates daily, year-round with more ferries operating during summer. Journey time is one hour. This service is useful for those travelling by car from the southern Croatian coast – or if you perhaps want to visit Brac as a day trip from Makarska.

By catamaran from Dubrovnik

There’s a catamaran that operates between Dubrovnik and Milna on Brac, run by Kapetan Luka. Journey time from Dubrovnik is 4 hours 15 minutes.
