Take a seat at an outside cafe and bar and enjoy the view. Walk in the water (as it is too shallow to swim in until you are way out of sight). Sit on the rocks and meditate. Watch the kids play. Marvellous.

We stayed in a pension in Brela and loved the beach there. Utterly clear water, really pristine. Not lots of tourists and very peaceful.

Makarska riviera is not a place if you like relaxing, clear water and having some space on the beach. It certanly has to offer beautiful beaches but then you should not be there during the highest seson. I allways choose islands because of possible variation- quate- noisy. In Baska is noisy everywhere. We liked that there were a nudist beach... More

We have visited about 8 beaches during our two week holiday in Crotia and the beach at Punta Rata, Brela was said to be the best. We had to walk about 1/4 mike before we could find a little space to put down our belongings. There are many other beaches I would go back to first. It is pretty but... More

I've been to this beach many times in my life and always had a good time. It's best to visit in the beginning of the season, for example the middle of June - before the crowds, when the sea is already warm and still very clean. It's a very popular beach and can get very crowded, especially in July and... More

We took a drive outside of Split to see what was titled the "best beach in Croaita." Every picture that we had seen was incredibly beautiful, but when we parked, and headed down to the beach, it felt as if every photo we had seen had been photoshopped. Really disappointed, but perhaps there was another part of the beach that... More

We visited Brela on the middle of May 2014, it was still cold and a bit rainy. Beach was really beautiful, city very small. People weren't so friendly as other cities on the coast.

After the publicity hype of being the best beach in Croatia with Adriatic constantly changing the shapes on this sandy peninsular. We decided to take the walking option from the port to the beach rather than the water taxi option. With temperature at around 30c the walk took an hour rather than the predicted 40 minutes but on arrival the... More
