Traveled with the Croatia Only group out of Seattle to a wonderful vacation spot in Croatia. Left in mid May returned early June while the weather was still cool and not lots of tourists to contend with. Our trip included lots of one day trips out of our little pension in Brela to as far south as Dubrovnik and two... More

I'm told that Brela is touted by Forbes Magazine as Europe's best beach. Having visited here twice and having visited the Thailand beaches, I have to agree. Be prepared for gravel, not sand. Even so, these beaches are beautiful, the water clear and clean, and in September, the water is warm and the beaches are not crowded.

Very cramped and looks very untidy looks like a typical sea sied resort people crammed onto the beach and lying in what looked like the car park with towels on the ground

Brela is a very nice and cool place. The beach is long and the water is fantastic. There are also several good showers around and good restaurants. Check out Obala!

I have been to loads of beaches in Croatia, this is a personal favourite. Rather narrow but wide stretched pebble beach with shading pine trees and clear water.

We did not find the sandy part of the beach, but the stones were not that uncomfortable. We enjoyed a great day there, with extremely clear water! It is fantastic to see. We paid to park closer to the water, having not been there or knowing where to go. It was easy to follow the signs and not a problem.... More

Brela is more than the village. Brela has a fantastic beachwalk that starts i the village and ends about 5 km north. It takes you pass wonderful beaches, most with a shower, and bars, cafes and restaurants. Just take a walk...

Beautiful beach - stunning views of the mountains surround the lovely, clean water. Only reason I've not given 5 stars is because we picked the only overcast day of our holiday to visit!

A beautiful, relaxed beach with friendly locals and good little cafes. The water was clear and warm. The mountains provided a stunning backdrop behind. We travelled here by car for the day from split and would have liked to have stayed a few days. Much better swimming and beach than in split.
