Why Brač?

Brac IslandSeparated from the mainland by the Adriatic, a 50-minute ferry ride away from the buzzing Split stands one of the unspoilt gems of the archipelago, a glorious mixture of limestone hills, ravines and gorges, whose beaches have been recognised for ecologically clean sea water. Way back this is where Roman settlers mined the stone used to construct the Diocletian Palace in Split, later also used on the White House in Washington and important buildings in Europe.

There are crystal clear bays, coves and immaculately clean pebble beaches all along the quiet coastline of the largest of the central Dalmatian group of islands. And the vast majority of them are quiet. Around 15 minutes’ drive from the ferry port of Supetar is the picturesque harbour town of Postira. This gorgeous coastal town and its ancient cobalt streets give a great mix of rustic villas and old stone homes, where the fishermen families lived for centuries before opening up to tourists. Several historic sites are within a short walking distance and plenty of waterfront tavernas, bars and restaurants offering fish just off the boats and other delicious Mediterranean specialties.

Skrip is the oldest settlement of the island, 10 minutes by car from either Supetar or Postira, resting on the gentle hills populated with olive groves with the most splendid views to the Brac channel, Split and the Adriatic sea. It hosts the museum of the island with hundreds of exciting historic episodes that played out in Brac. This is where the Romans run the largest historic stone quarry and some of the buildings go back to the late-Greek and early-Roman age. Skrip is amazingly peaceful and quiet, secluded from the buzz of the coastal towns, but still within minutes from the pristine blue coves and white beaches.

You can island hop, taking day excursions to the party island of Hvar and to sleepy Solta, but there’s plenty on Brac to keep the family amused for at least a week. Brac and its surroundings offer you an amazing holiday opportunity through much of the year. You can visit amazing cultural sites, have an active, adventurous break and/or enjoy the rich culture and culinary specialties.

Some of them include: scuba diving, snorkeling, running/jogging, mountain biking, adventure sports (kite surfing and wind surfing), whitewater rafting at the Cetina river (across the channel by boat), kayaking, canoeing, etc.

Coast/Beach:

There are many beautiful beaches within easy reach of our apartments. The nearest, Molo Lozna, is a gentle 7 min walk. A delightful beach with a pleasant terraced cafe and great swimming and snorkeling. There are four other lovely beaches in Postira itself, each with a cafe, and many more in each direction along the coast. There are plenty of secluded swimming spots too. And a delightful 3km walk through pine groves brings you to the famous sandy beach at Lovrecina.
