Holidays to Brac Island

Make your escape to Brac Island and you’ll be surrounded by irresistible beaches, stone houses with russet-coloured roofs and lush forests, not to mention the electric-blue sea. This is the place to go for a slice of the laid-back Dalmatian life; you can spend your days relaxing in the sunshine on Zlanti Rat (one of Europe’s best beaches) and strolling down stone-paved streets. Step it up a gear with water sports and outdoor adventures; the sparkling sea and dramatic peaks will be your playground. This may be one of Croatia’s biggest islands, but it’s one of its best-kept secrets and the least ‘touristy’ of the lot.

Holidays to the island of Brac are ideal for families and couples. Laze around in the sun on Zlanti Rat, or get your adrenaline pumping with a water sports adventure. Go and explore ancient caves and amazing architecture, and when you’re done, indulge in local fare; the cheese and wine are just two of many highlights.

The beaches on Brac Island have to be seen to be believed; for many, they’re the main draw for a holiday here. They range from pebbly coves to white sandy stretches, and they’re usually lined by pine trees. The best-known place to soak up the sunshine is beautiful Zlatni Rat beach in Bol; watch its triangular peak shift as the current sweeps across it. Due to Bol’s favourable wind conditions, the area is also popular with windsurfers. It’s ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling, too. It’s worth discovering hidden beaches around Supetar; you’ll find lots of lovely bays and concealed coves pitting the coastline.

The fresh ocean air, high mountain regions and lush Mediterranean soil makes Brac Island the perfect place for growing grapes, olives and figs. The island is well known and for its wine, olive oil and cheese, and if you wish you can take a tantalising wine or food tour during your stay. While you’re here, be sure to sample Vitalac (a local lamb dish). You can wash it down with the local drink, Bolski Plavac. Be careful, though; it’s a pretty feisty spirit made from grapes and herbs.

Brac Island is home to many small towns, each one more charming than the next. You’ll find the remains of the biggest Christian Basilica in Povlja near the parish church; it’s also home to the oldest preserved documents written in Croatian. In Supetar, you’ll find so-called ‘bunje’ hidden among olive plantations and vineyards; these rock-built houses with domed roofs are well worth discovering. Today they’re used to store tools, but they’re believed to have once been the houses of prehistoric man.

Getting around

By car hire: Want to explore the island of Brac at your own pace? Renting a car gives you the freedom to go wherever you want, whenever you want.

By bus: If you’re not planning on hiring a car, you could travel around by bus instead; it’s a convenient and inexpensive alternative.

By boat: Hop from beach to beach by hailing down a taxi boat, or rent your own boat and take a trip along the coast.


Events

Supetar Summer Festival: In late June, the tiny town of Supetar erupts into a three-month-long festival. It’s a real celebration of local culture, featuring classical, pop, and jazz music, a famous fisherman’s feast, klapas evenings, theatrical performances, and loads more.

Vanka Regule: Held in July, this extreme sports festival is all about trail running, mountain biking, free climbing, windsurfing, and more. It’s combined with a film festival, too, with plenty of al fresco screenings for adventure lovers.

Open-air cinema: When summer rolls around, a pop-up cinema shows up on the waterfront in Bol. Catch recent releases and all-time classics depending on when you go. When you’re done, head for a laid-back drink along the promenade between Bol and Zlanti Rat Beach.
