Very nice island with a nice seaside. If you have a car it is nice opportunity to visit all the island and find out very different and interesting places. If you are going there, don't miss to visit the view point from where you can see Hvar and the other islands that's are near.

We visited Brac from Split via ferry. We landed at Supetar and caught a cheap bus across the island to Bol. Bol was great, lovely quiet place around its harbour, and we walked to the beach and spent the afternoon there. Preferred Brac to Hvar.

We had a splendid time in Brac. We rented mountain bikes and cycled along the coast and then inland towards Bobovišća. It was a challenging ride but we were able to make frequent stops for photo opportunities. Another suggestion is renting a scooter to visit Bol. With frequent ferry departures from Split (less than 1h journey), this island is well... More

Just take the ferry from Split to Brac for a day trip (return 66kn). Take the local bus to Bol (return 50kn), where you can find great swimming spots. Bars, restaurants and supermarket available in Bol.

Great stay in Milna, a lively village without the hype. A lovely harbour with stony beaches 10 min walk away, convenient shops and nice restaurants.

Brac is quite a bit less commercial than Hvar. Really loved the scenery. The restaurants and shopping are more laid back. A really nice way to get away.
