My Grandmother's family came from this island so I decided to visit it and explore. I would have liked to explore some of the other villages but I spent most of my time exploring Postira where my family is from. The island itself is beautiful and scenic. I visited in December and it was pretty warm. I had to take... More

Liked athmosfare. Sea water was clear to swim and people ok. In some days couple showers but generally quite warm. Also cheaper than in Greece. Mostly people from continentall around. Good with children and not so much for young adults to party. Probably in ten years this place will be ruineid with overselling door mens and shops but luckily not... More

The town of Supetar is the port of landing for the ferry from Split to Brac.it is a beautiful island with wonderful views and lovely stone homes. there is plenty to do ranging from beaches to great restaurants, historic sites and some shopping. look for traditional coral jewelry or filigree silver designs. Plan to spend a few days and relax!

Instead of Hvar, my friend and I decided to go to Brac instead, and we do not regret. Brac may be not as popular, but it certainly worth going if you like sunshine, seashore and beach. It has taxi and coach service from Supetar (the town where the pier for ferries from Split is located) to Bol (south of Brac)... More

We stayed a total of five nights in Bol, and included a visit to Supetar. Brac island is a very picturesque island with a quiet way of life. From what I understand, its neighbor Hvar is more busy, as it is a party destination. The reason behind choosing to have our vacation on Brac was because were intrigued by the... More

We can to Bol on the island if brac in July. The weather is great being in the high 20's with a cool wind which means you're never too hot. There are many places to eat sea food and grilled lamb. Typically with Croatia there are no sand beaches.

Took the fish pinic boat for a nice 1 hour ride then jumped off boat for a swim. They provide floats if you want one. Then off to another island for a delicious lunch of fish or chicken and time to swim or sunbathe. Bring drinks as none are provided while on the boat. Owner is wonderful, speaks English very... More

This was the first island in Croatia on our tour. It was beautiful and just wonderful to be on an island that is relatively unspoiled but still had modern amenities. This island also had some great places to eat!

We spent the day on the island and rented a car, which was a blast!! We drove to Zlanti Rat (the beautiful finger beach) and found it picture perfect and relaxing. We also had lunch in Supetar over looking the sea.. the prices were only a few kuna more that on the Riva in Split. Pleasant day!
