Supetar

Let the stresses and strains of everyday life wash away from you in the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea, as you enjoy a relaxing time in Supetar. Whether you want to spend a single day soaking up some sun or a week or two recharging your batteries, you’re sure to feel re-energised after a trip to this lovely town.

Perched on the north coast of stunning Brac Island, you can take a ferry from Split to Supetar in just 50 minutes. With departures leaving as early as 5.15am over summer, and returning to the mainland at 10.45pm, Supetar is perfect for a day trip from the Dalmatian Coast’s biggest city.

Despite having a local population of just a few thousand, Supetar is a lively town that’s known for its lovely architecture and cultural tradition. Spend the morning strolling along the waterfront and
exploring the narrow streets, before settling down for an afternoon at the beach.

Lay down your towel on the white pebbles, which shelve down into the crystal clear sea that laps gently against the shore. Gaze out across the water and admire the views back towards mainland Croatia. As the day draws to a close, make your way to the waterfront in the northwest of town for the best view as the sun slips into the horizon.

If you’re catching a late ferry back to Split, you’ll still have time to sit down for a relaxed dinner at Supetar’s harbour. Try local specialities like the fresh seafood at a restaurant with views across the sea, as you sample a glass of the local Brac Island wine.

Back on the mainland, have a good night’s sleep before exploring the historic attractions in Split, such as Diocletian’s Palace and the Cathedral of Saint Domnius. Or if you’re staying on Brac Island, head to Bol on the south coast and spend a day at the town’s stunning beach.
