    The gateway to Brač via the ferry from Split
    Supetar Bay constitutes the town of Supetar, a small, unassuming, yet nicely preserved medieval port town. There are plenty of restaurants along the bay (the prices range from medium to high), and the views of the mountain ranges from across the water are glorious. Not too much time is needed to a explore the little backstreets as Supetar is rather small (but undeniably charming). Instead, follow the bay with the sea on your right and wander until you reach beyond the town to reach the beaches.

    Good base for exploring the island
    Supetar is a good location to stay for first time visit to Brac and easy to explore the island by local bus or car. There are regular ferries to and from Split which is about €22 return for a foot passenger. Lots of nice cafes and restaurants around the harbour and side streets. There's some quieter beach/swimming spots in either direction out of town which are an easy walk. Swimming shoes are a must as the beaches are pebbly. The water is so clear and safe for swimming. A good place to have a coffee and enjoy an amazing view is at the cafe located inside the Tommy Hypermarket on the edge of town! For a sunset view visit the rooftop bar at Hotel Osma. The Floradora cocktail is delicious.

    Lovely picture postcard town
    Supetar bay and harbour is a lovely picture postcard town , with an array of little shops , stalls and fabulous bars and restaurants with pretty views . A couple of lovely beaches nearby Acapulco with a bar , Banj with cafes and bars and sunbeds to hire and Tri Mosta . The bus and ferry terminal is just to the side of the bay with ferry connections to Split and the buses to the towns close by , all run frequently with timetables from the visitor information kiosk.

We randomly wondered down to the ferry port in Split, Croatia while on holiday from Manchester, England and saw Supetar on the Island of Brac as a destination and so we took a chance and bought out tickets.

Ferry ride was 50 mins or so from Split, We absolutely fell in love with Supetar, The little bay, Church and the amazing pebble beaches(Best bit of advice is buy water shoes) and the clearest waters I've seen.

Friendly locals, Quiet beaches and just a great experience.

5* from us.

We hired a scooter ( as we are staying at Bol on Brac) and this was one of our stops on the opposite end of the island.If you have walked the Riva in Split this is a mini version.it has boats/ scooters for hire , a few boutiques , some supermarkets, ice cream shops and a promenade of cafes / restaurants.There is also a pretty church and bell tower ( worth a stop). it’s a nice walk in the little quaint streets behind the promenade to see some old stone houses with little green shutters.It has a small playground and a people beach.Worth a stop for a couple of hrs

Our first stop on a gulet cruise on the Queen of the Adriatic. This was a great experience, beautiful boat with only 6 cabins (5 occupied), crew of 3 and all very excellent. We had spent the first night in Split and then a gentle cruise to the port. We ate on board, were still a bit tired so didn't get to see too much but what there was was very good. Plenty of restaurants, bars, very clean and friendly. A shame we couldn't explore more but we'll definitely be back for longer.

One of the loveliest little towns I've ever seen. Enough restaurants and bars to give you options. It's clean and feels really safe. I recommend Pub Beer Garden for food and an excellent drinks menu.

You are going to the island of Brac and arriving at the port in the village of Supetar. I ordered our tickets in advance using my credit card at the Jadrolonija Ferry website. The roundtrip fee for two people and our car was 360 Kuna ($54.31 USD). The trip was 50 minutes each way. We took the 9:00 a.m. ferry from Split, arriving 9:50 a.m. in Supetar. We returned on the 6:00 pm ferry from Supetar, arriving Spliot at 6:50 p.m. This schedule worked well for us.

To get to the Supetar Ferry you will want to have a free small scale city map from the Split Tourist Board and plot your route from your starting point down to the road that fronts the International Harbour on the SE corner of Split’s waterfront. It is not a long walk from the waterfront promenade, so it may even be worth your while to take a walk down there the day before just to get your bearings. The total driving time from anywhere in Split to the ferry is probably no more than 15 minutes, but, if you haven’t done it before, the stress level might be a bit high.

Once on the proper street to the International Harbour, you will see electronic signs with the ferries list by their destinations and departure times. For example, you may see Supetar listed several times perhaps for 9:00, 11:00, 12:30 etc. As you progress the signs will then be posted at each by destination. I first got worried because I kept seeing signs for every destination but Supetar, but that was because it is one of the last. When you see the sign for Supetar, you will see the ferry if it is in port, and lanes to park in. There are workers there to help, so watch them for directions to the proper lane.

There is a ferry terminal office to your right, but you have no need to go there. I was hoping to find a map to Brac, but they didn’t have any. I also was not able to find a map once we arrived in Supetar, and had wished I had printed my own from the Internet. Most roads on Brac are little more than cow paths

We arrived at 8:00 a.m. for the 9:00 ferry, which was plenty early, but just about right for anyone who has not navigated themselves to the ferry port before. You are going to want ample time for the wrong turn or two on your way. We took along some food, reading material and a crossword book, and stayed with the car until they began loading at 8:45. Have your printed ticket ready for the deck hand who will scan it and then direct you to your spot on the boat.

Once parked, you will probably want to leave the car and make your way to upstairs lounge and decks. Seating is first-come-first-served, so the sooner you go up the more choice you will have for seating (inside or outside, left or right, front or back?). Free restrooms are also available. If you are a photographer, you will probably end up walking around anyway to get pictures looking back at Split and then pictures of Supetar upon arrival.

As the ferry nears Supetar you will see everyone leaving the decks and heading below for the cars. Join them. Once the ferry arrives, cars are allowed to leave in an orderly single file, which means that once on shore you have no choice in your initial direction, so you have need to have some idea of where you want to go once you exit the port.

Signs are present, but for the most part they point to villages by name. In general, your GPS will be of little or no use, so you are going to want to have a map with you that at least will give you the names and locations of the villages, so you can use the signs to guide you approximately in the right direction.

Upon return later in the day, we arrived back at Supetar at 5:00 for the 6:00 ferry, which placed us among the first 10 in line. The Supetar waterfront is very pleasant, so we took the 40 minutes or so we had to walk along the waterfront, visit the shops, buy some ice cream and take a look in the local church.

Bottom Line: The ferry is well run and trips are very routine for those who are familiar with the process. For those of us who are probably making our one and only trip ever on the ferry, pre-planning and allowing plenty of time is the best way to have a successful low-stress crossing.

Took the ferry from Split to Supetar. Spent a few hours walking along the bay enjoying the beautiful views, had a spot of lunch and an ice cream before heading back to Split on the ferry. It was a nice place to visit and plenty of restaurants to choose from.

Supetar Bay is excellent for families, they have an aqua park with slides and pedalo boats with a slide much to the delight of my children, you can book one for 30Kn for half an hour on the water. The promenade houses lots of cafes and bars where you can grab a drink or a snack. Although if you just want a snack, do as the locals do & pop to the nearest bakery where you can grab delicious fresh bread, sweet & savoury pastries and even tasty pizza priced at 10Kn a slice. My children became addicted to the custard doughnuts at 5Kn each.The seaside restaurants have lovely views of the harbour & most are priced quite reasonably compared to similar restaurants in Split. You have everything the kids need for a great day out in Supetar Bay, it's only an hour's ferry ride from Split for 99Kn (approx £12) for a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children) when we visited Aug 2017. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
