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!

From the port take the bus up to Bol. You will see there the famous beach . The water there will be calm one side and normal on the other. You will see the green mountain that Brac has.

We went with one of the tour boats to Brac to go to the beach Bol. The beach is crowded, but really nice. The water is so clear and has a beautiful color. You can buy food and drinks everywhere. If you need to go back to the city, you can take a taxi boat.

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
