Brac and the resort of Bol were one of the highlights of out trip. To get to Brac Island we caught the bus from Dubrovnik bus station to Makaraska bus station, the journey was about 4 hours. This included a couple of rest stops and boarder checks, you actually cross into Bosnia for a couple of minutes along the way so make sure you keep your passports on you.
We then walked from the bus station and got the ferry over to Brac getting off at Sumartin Harbour, from here you can get the local bus to Bol. This is were you will find the fab Zlatni Rat beach. If you do go here and want to visit this beach you can get a small road train up to the beach for 5 Kuna.
When we were here we hired a small motor boat for the day and brought it up along the coast. We had never drove one before but they show you everything you need to know and you can find little beaches all to yourself
There is a cocktail bar called Varadera (I think that is how you spell it) this is where most of the nightlife is. You can’t miss it, it has lovely wicker chairs and palm umbrella’s. the music usually gets good around 12.15 and it is completely outdoor.
When you leave here to head back to sumartin to catch the ferry we were told that there was no bus until 4.30 but there actually was one in time for the ferry. We are not sure if the tourist agency was running the taxi service or if it was a genuine mistake.
Hope this helps
