Leisure Activities

Supetar

Supetar is the capital of the island. Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and orchards, it also has a beautiful sandy beach which has its own watersports centre. There is an appealing harbour with medieval streets which creates a unique atmosphere. A visit to the 18th century Church of Annunciation is well worthwhile with its stunning paintings and monumental staircase.

Vidova Mountain

At 780m, Vidova Mountain is the highest peak of the Adriatic archipelago. It’s possible to hike up the mountain trail starting from Gospa Karmelska and it takes approximately two hours. The view from the top is breathtaking with views overlooking the Adriatic coast. On a clear day you can see Monte Gargano in Italy.

Beaches

The beaches on Brac Island are mostly pebble and rocky, but there are a few sandy beaches including the one at Supetar. On the northern coast, between Sutivan and Postira, you can find numerous small coves with stunning scenery.

More About Brac Island

Brac Island is the largest island of the central Dalmation group and it's reached by a short (approximately 50 minute) ferry ride from Split. Brac can offer everything for a memorable holiday in a fantastic location; it's rich in culture plus it has some wonderful beaches and a choice of excellent accommodation. The island is less crowded than some of its neighbours like Korcula and Hvar Island, making it the ideal destination for a peaceful relaxing break away from home and the perfect way to experience the authentic Croatian life style. Supetar is located on the north coast and has a horseshoe-shaped beach. This is the island's main town and ferry port where visitors arrive when travelling from Split. Take a walk through the town to enjoy charming squares, cobblestone streets and a wonderful choice of eateries where you can eat the best Croatian cuisine. Bol is very popular with holidaymakers, largely due to the white-pebble beach (Zlanti rat/Golden Horn). This long pebble beach extends up to 500m out into the sea and it's a big hit with fans of parasailing and windsurfing. The town also has a lovely harbour promenade, plenty of shops and restaurants and some interesting historical sights to explore. It's also well placed to visit Vidova Gora, the island's highest mountain where you can enjoy breathtaking views from the summit. Splitska, Pucisca or Milna are more peaceful resorts best suited for a 'get away from it all' holiday.
