Ferry ride was relaxing to Brac from Split. Supetar was quaint, enjoyed a lovely lunch on the waterfront, beautiful areas for swimming, you will need your swimming shoes. Great place for children.

Our tour group took the ferry to spend the afternoon on Brac. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant across the street from the water. I think it was called The Vagabondo. The food was great, and the view was fantastic. It was pretty cloudy the day we went, but the island was still beautiful. The walk along the... More

We wanted to see the famous shingle spit which is apparently an iconic and tourist promoting beauty spot.The views from the bus as we approached Bol were indeed absolutely gorgeous but the spit itself was only ok. A great geographical point of interest but not worth the 2 hour journey it took to get there from Split.

We biked the entire island of Brac. There are so many charming, quaint fishing villages lining the sea, each one better than the last. The water surrounding the island is crystal blue only to be rivaled to that of the BVIs or French West Indies. Brac promotes the famous beach in Bol, but there is so much more to this... More

Our guide/driver Ante Batarelo came with us on the ferry with his car and offr we set on another adventure - the golden horn with all facilities for children was amazing. The drive around the island was so interesting stopping at the little villages see capers grow out of the stone walls. We travelled to the far side of the... More

What a place - so much variety in terms of towns and villages, so much history and wonderful views, marinas and buildings. Folks are friendly and prices very reasonable. Stay for a few days to get the most of the island and visit the key places of interest.

Pure mediterraneo! such a natural beauty with old houses where locals live out of what they made or have! its like lwent back 100 years ago. my favorite place is a small village pucisca with its pure clean adriatic sea and domestic atmoaphere. La isla is a pure haven where you want to live once old

Brach has a different feel to Hvar and Solta. I'd imagine it's very busy in peak season, which thankfully wasn't the case for my visit. A lot bigger island and a bus across from Supertar to Bol took almost an hour, with school children, pick up/drop offs you need to factor this in if you only visit for the day.... More

Nice to see old Croatia . To see the masses of stone fences piled by ages of farmers for centuries all around the island was fascinating . Had an amazing lunch in a private dining house of lamb ,wine,potatoes and olive oil that was grown locally
