Brac, famed for its beautifully radiant white stone, is the longest and most elevated of all the Dalmatian islands, 48km long and 14km wide. Less frequented by tourists than nearby Hvar and Split, Brac is an example of perfectly preserved island life, with a rich and fascinating history, and dramatics landscapes – a mixture of rocky cliffs, sapphire waters and thick Aleppo pine forests.
The famous white-pebble beach, Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape) is a must – adorning so many of Croatia’s tourism campaigns, it’s easy to see why, with its unusual geography and changeable nature, from shallow and shaded to deep and sun-blistered, depending on the direction of the wind. Nearby to this beach is Bol, on the southern side of the island, and the oldest town on the coast. Explore the town’s narrow and winding cobbled streets, bustling with local life, in typical Mediterranean spirit. There is ample evidence of the deep history of Bol in the many monuments dating back to the 11th century, and is a great place to visit to learn more about Brac’s rich past.
Heading to the East coast, you’ll find the smaller town of Sumartin, founded in the 17th century by pilgrims attempting to flee from Turkish rule. The influence of this is evident in the difference in dialect in Sumartin from the island’s other towns. Here, fishing, ship-building and olive growing are the main occupations for locals, and this bustling town has a host of things to offer, from secluded bays, wonderfully fresh seafood and mouth-watering restaurants, head here to escape the masses and get a feel for the genuine, true Dalmatia.
Brac is home to the highest peak on the Adriatic islands, Vidova Gora, and you can hike (or drive!) to it’s peak to enjoy spectacular views over Zlatni Rat beach, Bol, and even over to Hvar on the horizon.
This island will definitely take you off the beaten path, but our glorious villas, situated right on the waterfront, provide the perfect point from which to explore and discover the island for yourselves.
This recently renovated Dalmatian villa is in the most fabulous spot- the Adriatic sea laps at the foot of the rocks below the property which looks out across the water to the opposite headland and mainland beyond. Beautiful pine trees frame the view from the exterior courtyard and the swimming pool seems to blend with the landscape beyond. The large sliding doors give the whole ground floor area a real feel of outdoor living, just what we’re looking for after a long English winter! We felt we could lie all day on a lounger watching the veiw.
Inside, the house is simply furnished with clean modern furniture and neutral colours. The bathrooms are spotless and generous in size and the kitchen is super sleek.
