Brela beach and Punta Rata beach is the best beaches we have been to. Pebble-beaches and it gets deep quite fast.The Punta Rata-beach is in shadow to about 10:30 but then it deserves "The best beach in Europe"-Award. Sunchairs for 30 HRK is good price.

Good beach for snorkeling, beautiful views. The biggest problem is parking, because there are no parking places, we asked some locals to park in their places and parked 50 m from beach and paid 2 euros :)

During our drive from Split to Dubrovnik, we wanted to visit Brela as a short stopover. As we parked our car, a (legal?) parking watcher turned up and asked us to pay 50 kuna (6,5 €) parking fee for a full day. I asked yo park only 3 hours, which was not possible. He referred me to a parking lot... More

We visited Brela for the day whilst staying in Split. It's very easy to get there, just hop on a bus at the main bus station in Split in the direction of Makarska. The bus drops you off right at the top of the hill though so be prepared for a good 20 minute walk and even longer on the... More

Bigger or smaller bays - big or small stones, natural shade, crystall clear sea... Yes - a bit crowdy during high season, but still top beach. Worth travelling and when you finally get there, just leave a car and enjoy with camera ready for some spectacular photos especially of a breathtaking sunset.

From an high mountain you can go down to the sea side, all the way under a forest of pine's trees. The water it's crystal clean and beach it's made up of small stones. We reach out the beach riding motorcycles and close to the Marina the bikes can stay only 2 hours

Indeed, Brela successfully combines the natural beauty and the human care for nature conservation. Brela Beach is a dream destination and a perfect reason to get on a plane to Croatia as soon as possible.

I must say I am quite disappointed with beaches in Croatia...basically they s**k. In this beach we could find at least 2 meters free in the rocks to place a towell and get some bath. The access to it is impossible though and I spent 2 hours on the road to make 20 km... So take it easy if you... More

This is a beach typical of the Makarska Riviera - crystal clear waters, smooth pebbles with a promenade running alongside filled with stands, shops and eateries. We had so much fun here. A very small area but lots of fun and close to other beaches (go for a walk to the Bluesun hotels and there are some lovely beaches -... More
