A second Yacht Marina has opened by the fish Market at Milna. It is very expensive for what you get. Speaking from personal experience the ladies facilities have one grotty shower and toilet with a light hanging from wires to service all the boats at stay there. No WiFi and a very smelly walk into town. They said they were... More

Being one of the few beaches in Split, it may get a bit crowded during July and August but the view is just great and you can also park just near the beach, The water is also crystal clear and you can have a great time there. I myself spent a few hours just contemplating the scenery, which is fabulous.

We took the Ferry from Split to Supetar, after which we went by road to Bol and visited the Zlatni Rat Beach. It is absolutely fabulous! A must do....However beware of the cost of a taxi back to supertar. We were informed but still it is quite expensive. There was no other optional transport late at night to catch the... More

I went to Brac via the ferry from Split and it it took about 45 minutes each way. It's a peaceful place and a nice change from bustling Split. There are a couple of cafes and nice beaches, I spotted a nudist one while I was there. It's definitely worth going there for a day trip.

very approachable from Split with ferries every one hour to Supetar. Very pittoresque place, typical fro families, not for young people who come to have party, more for senior guests and families like I wrote. But, still, nice looking, with fare prices and good infrastructure.

Took the bus from Supertar to Bol and walked up the highest mountain in Croatia. It was a very beautiful place and would have loved to spend a few days there

Nothing special, it's nice island, clean and close to Split, but it's just for relaxation and to have a nice walking tour, if you are with your family or a senior tourist. There's nothing special to see, not some special atraction or offer to keep younger tourists to hang out there.

Only saw Bol, Zlatni Rat and Vidova Gora. On that basis Brac is a great place to visit but a little let down by lack of choice. There are some fabulous beaches, the people are friendly, witty, and happy to speak English. The landscape and the architecture are both beautiful. On the downside transport options are so thin you're pretty... More

The many towns on the island all have different atmospheres. Liked them all. Food in place we tried was good. People are quite straight faced, but will help if asked. We climbed a mountain , swam , sunbathed, fished walked & more. Didn't want to leave!
