We visited Blaca Monastery at the afternoon. Unfortunately we missed guided tour and opening hours (you shoud check it before visiting this place). But it was great experience anyway, worth the walk. I was quite impressed how were they able to build it here, in this difficult area with no access. Make sure you will have enough water. ;)

We hiked here from the water and it was a fun 45 minute hike each way. Definitely wear sneakers or some sort of hiking boots and bring water. Monastery was beautiful!

We stayed in Bol and with a car decided to drive to see Pustinja Blaca, which is the site of an old hermitage. We enjoyed the 30 min walk from the parking lot (accessed via a fairly long off-road but fairly easy drive) to the site (and even the uphill walk back – you need suitable footwear), but we didn’t...

A walk trough Blaca is very beautiful. You can do it from several way's and it's alway's nice to do. It's not possible to come there by car. You need to walk at least 30 minutes, need more a good condition and good walking shoes. It's not a nice paved road.... When you arrive at Blaca it's amazing to see.... More

An excellent walk down the mountain, fantastic views. The walk down from car park was easy, the uphill walk back up in 30degrees took effort, make sure you take water with you as there are no concessions at the monastery.

I am so glad we managed to get to Blanca. We'd heard a lot about it but had also heard that it was a bit of a hike and being lazy holidaymakers, kept putting it off. But it turned out to be my favourite day on Brac. it's a bit like something out of a movie. You can only get... More

The monastery really is an interesting place. 2 brothers now live there and give you an amazing tour of the building. So much history and artefacts, even my teenage daughter loved it ! The trail down is stoney as suggested in other reviews but if you wear trainers and take it easy it's a beautiful walk and a change from... More

Very interesting monastery with interesting history. After the 20min walk you can have a glass of domestic wine or some other soft drink at monastery, while waiting for the tour of the interior on your language that are taking place every 30min. After if you want, you can walk another 2,5km to the beach and have a swim. After you... More

Lot of walking but it's worth it. Choose a cloudy day and bring a lot of water with you. 2 km walking.

An absolute must visit whilst on Brač... Utterly worth the steep 2.5km trail to get there. Fascinating history and an amazing place to have been built so far from anywhere. Make sure to take plenty of water and good walking shoes. To get to the walking trail you need to follow signs for Vidora gora you will then start to... More
