Brela has a stunning beach with the clearest sea. Easy to hire a boat from the beach & travel along the coast to little beaches inaccessible by foot. Parasailing & sea rides are available on the beach. BEWARE....if you travel by local bus, it drops you off on the main road & there is a very steep zigzag road to... More

It is actually amazing that so many are rating this beach as fantastic, but it truly is. It is small, narrow, packed with people and consists of pebbles. But there is a chilled atmosphere, not that many stands ice and fruits, and not many sales people ob the beach itself. The water is crystal clear and fresh and not polluted... More

We stayed in Brela August 2016, it's a small, friendly family resort. The beaches get very busy so try to get there by 11 in the morning. You can hire sunbeds and parasols for 30Kn per day, beach shoes recommended (you can buy these and cheap mats on the beach) Lots of places to buy drinks, ice cream, snacks, crepes,... More

Great beach, pebbly not sand so beach shoes a good idea. The sea is crystal clear. Sunbeds and umbrellas for hire or take your own or sit in the shade of the scot pine trees which fringe the beach. Lots of bars to get drinks and snacks. The downside was it was heaving which I suppose is to be expected... More

We spent a few days in Brela at the end of our vacation. It was a great place to relax and enjoy the beach along with being a great place to make that last jump to the airport of you have a car. We would definety like to spend more time her next time we are in Croatia.

It has pretty enough beaches and good restaurants. However the most important attractive aspect of Brela is the social environment provided for Croacians. It means that if you are looking for an European paradise this is not the place.

Seriusly, beaches are amazing! All of them! The water is clear, natural shade is scarse but never too far away, food is good, locals are nice... Could not ask for more!

Me and my girlfriend visited Brela in June/July 2016 and were amazed. The water is so clean and the color amazing. You can also find enough free spaces in this time of the year. I will definitely come back again.

It is just a nice, peaceful and beautiful beach area that has not been spoiled by aggressive over-development. Observations are for late May. It seems like a place that I would be happy to take my family. Even the pub in the bay was fairly reserved on a Saturday night compared with other places that I have been.
