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

Took a day trip here. 28kn for a ferry (one way). Took an hour to get there from Split. Easy to get the bus (50kn round trip) to Bol on the other side of the island. I enjoyed the island. Even the bus ride was pretty. Lots of pine trees and forest areas. The view from the mountain road was... More

Our drive from the Golden Horn across the island to have a long lazy lunch, eating freshly caught fish and local produce at the Fishermans restaurant.

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.

There are many beautiful islands around Split but Brac is the closest one. It is easily reached by ferries that take off from the harbour of Split. You can by tickets from the harbour and the prices are reasonable. Supetar is a small and beautiful town and very peaceful still in May. There are many taxi drivers in the harbour... More
