The island of Brac is the largest island in central Dalmatia and its dramatic coastline can be found on many a Croatian travel poster. A combination of dramatic steep cliffs and thick pine forests make this a delightful landscape to explore, whilst the plethora of charming villages offer visitors the chance to sample some of the island’s delicious local produce, including figs, grapes and sour cherries.

Brac is famous for its luminous white stone, which was used to build some of the columns in the White House in Washington and the stunning Diocletian’s Palace in Split. In addition to the quarries there are various stone workshops to visit and the island offers a unique opportunity to see some of Croatia’s most beautiful stone villages.

The two main destinations on Brac are Supetar and Bol. Supetar is small but offers some lovely walks and is popular with families. There are numerous secret coves to explore and plenty of spots for safe swimming. Bol is busier, with a bustling promenade and much more in the way of nightlife. The long pebbly beach of Zlatni Rat is a big draw, as are the numerous water sports here. You might also be able to arrange a private trip via the tourist office to the village of Murvica, where a series of fantastic carvings can be found at the whimsical-sounding Dragon Cave.

Bespoke luxury yacht charters give you the opportunity to design your own sailing itinerary., so be sure to stop off at Brac ‒ one of Croatia’s real beauty spots.
