Perfection is an understatement!! The facilities, the views, the private beach and the gracious host totally exceeded our expectations. You will never be disappointed if you stay at the one and only Villa Godi Star in Sumartin. We traveled as a group of 12 friends and had the best holiday. One because this villa and location is stunning and two... More

Brac was the first island we went to, and we loved it. We stayed in a little town, and swam right in the dock. The biking was great.

Went there for some hidden gems and found just the right beaches. Many accesible only by foot, others with a high clearance car. You can just walk around the island and pick your favourite. Some more beach road signs would sure help a lot reaching your destination faster !

Stayed in Brac for 2 weeks, so we had the opportunity to visit it quiet in depth. I found the southern side of the island nicer than the northern one as for landscape and beaches (Zlatni Rat and Murvica above all). Yet, we were staying in nice and quiet (VERY quiet) Splitska, which is located in the North. There you... More

During our stay in Split, we decided to visit the island of Brac. I researched a lot about it and found that everyone goes to the beach of Zlatini Rat in Bol. After the 50 minute ferry trip from Split, you need another 1 hour by bus to reach Bol. That was a bit too much and the buses from... More

It was about 45 min away from Split harbour. Just go to the harbour and By the tickets when you want to leave. From Brac harbour we took a taxi (50 kunas/person/way) and slept in the taxi for 40 minutes. Then we arrived to Bol. We spend 5 hours on the beach and then the same taxi came to pick... More

We had some difficulty getting around on a day trip with the ferry from Split: public transport is not well suited and you will have to adapt your plans and see far less than you expected. Get to Bol and and beach and old monastery, or stay in the north. Than do not miss out on Skrip, but it is... More

Bol is a pretty town with gorgeous beaches and pine scented roads. Simply be aware that the apartments people are renting are not vacation rental appropriate, and you won't find a decent meal at any restaurant no matter how much you pay. A local chef told me the restaurants all serve frozen fish, no matter what they claim on their... More

I have visited amlost all of the Croatian islands in the past ten years but the one I keep comming back to is Brac. If you look for peace and quiet look for Bobovisca na moru, if on the other hand you are looking for something more bustling go to Bol. Wonderful beaches, several really good restaurants, the cleanest, most... More

From Split to Bol $12CAD Ferry ride (45 min ) Jadrolinija $10CAD Bus ride (45min)* don't take a cab it cost $10 per person. We liked this beach because it was clean with great waves and can get very deep. No need for swimming shoes even though it's not sandy.
