The Island of Brac

Brac is the largest island in central Dalmatia being about 25 miles long by 8 miles wide. It has two main towns, Bol and Supetar, and lots of sleepy fishing villages. It has a dramatic Mediterranean landscape of pines and marquis and there are steep cliffs sloping down into rocky bays and sparkling blue seas.

The interior landscape is more arid than the coast. The climate is sunny, hot and dry in the long summer months and the island boasts over 2700 hours of sunshine a year.

The people are very friendly and it is unusual to meet anyone who cannot speak English.

The main roads are good and uncrowded. There is a reasonable bus service on the island. Car, scooter and bike hire is readily available.

Bol is a very pretty small town. It has an attractive working harbour where you can buy fresh fish as soon as the catch is landed. There are a good range of restaurants and bars in the centre.

There are four supermarkets and three bakeries. A small fruit and vegetable market is situated in the middle of the town. There is a convenience store 75 meters down the street.

Bol has something for everyone. The pebbled beaches are beautifully clean. A stroll along the famous ‘marble walk' leads to Zlatni Rat [the golden cape].

Because of its unusual shape, backed with pine woods, it is possibly the most photographed beach in Croatia. Bol is a premier location for windsurfing and kite surfing. Diving activities are also available. There are several tennis courts. There is also a night club in the town.

Above all, Bol is a relaxing and beautiful place to spend a holiday.
