An ancient and unspoiled former fishing island with the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean sea. Quite little villages with friendly locals great food. A good base for exploring Dalmatian life and its history.

I went here for a day trip from another island and I though the place was lovely. The boat we took to the island dropped us off a good bit from the main beach. We got a taxi or bus I think to the main beach. The water was amazing and it is worth your while to pay for a... More

Unfortunately, we just traveled across the island during one day, but its beauty stunned me. From the beautiful nature to the charming little towns, this is really a place where you can spend great vacation. Great food, stunning stone houses and great beaches are just some other bonuses along the way. The ferry docked in Supetar, a great little town... More

It's really hard to pick the best aspect of this ideal Adriatic spot. I love the secluded beaches, the rocks with the pine woods with crickets in the back (for a perfect mix of sun and shades). Running or biking along the shaded paths is a pure joy. Comes the summer afternoon, whey you had enough of swimming or being... More

Took the ferry to Brac and then rented a small car and drove al over the island.Stopped at an olive grove and met the owner and bought several bottles of excellent olive oil. Brac is well worth a ferry trip.

We were sailing around this region for a couple of weeks and stopped off at several places around the island. First stop was Bol on the south of the island. A small pretty town with a small harbour and town quay. The town quay is lined with bars and restaurants and there was a good lively atmosphere to the place.... More

We rode for two days: from Bobovitsca to Pucisca along the northern end and from Pucisca to Bol up and over the tallest point. It was cloudy and rainy but still quite beautiful even in those conditions.
