Croatia is blessed with a number of lovely islands, but Brac has a couple of advantages. First, it has regular and quick ferry service from Split. Second, it is not developed fully yet, so the small stone villages that grace the island are intact and lovely. We went there on a biking trip, which used Postira as its base for three days of biking. Postira has a couple of hotels, and a small harbor. Everyone has their own favorite coastal town, but I loved Milna, which is a sailing haven, with a number of street cafes, and a slow, measured pace. Most of the tourist action is in Bol, which has hotels, a walking boulevard and the famous Zlatni Rat or beach. But, I prefer the small towns of Pucisca, Povlja, Skrip and Nerezica. At certain times, it is possible to take a ferry from Brac to Hvar, but it's no hardship to return to Split and take a ferry from there to Hvar.
I want to live here!
I want to live here, it's perfectly formed. Great scenery. Loved the restaurants, boats idling at the port and the easy pace.
lovely island worth visiting
Ferry ride was relaxing to Brac from Split. Supetar was quaint, enjoyed a lovely lunch on the waterfront, beautiful areas for swimming, you will need your swimming shoes. Great place for children.
there is so much to see and do on Brac....quaint, lovely and peaceful. I definitely recommend staying in a villa on the water!
