Is Brač island worth visiting?
Brac island (pronounced ‘brach’) is a bit off-the-beaten-path location in Croatia and we say that only because it’s not that popular as some other islands like Hvar, Mljet, Korčula.. Its proximity to Split town is its big advantage and that is the way we’ll take you to this third largest island among the Adriatic islands. The two main villages on the island and definitely the places where most of the tourists come to are Supetar and Bol, and with just that you already see the leverage you have while taking a yacht charter and then making Brač island one of the stops. Island hopping is the most popular thing to do on vacation in Croatia, as it is truly the best way to explore the most of the uncrowded destinations in Croatian islands. As we mentioned this is the third largest islands in the Adriatic, Brac island is actually quite small and can be explored in two days, that is why it is a one day stop on your 7-day Adriatic journey. The way you’ll get to see the island is a unique one so keep on reading and you just might fall in love with the idea of this year’s vacation in Croatia.
The island is frequently visited by sport lovers as there is just endless opportunities for parasailing, surfing and water-skiing. On the island there is the highest peak of the Adriatic, a mountain called St. Vid, that provides a marvelous view of the whole islands with the panorama of the open sea. The island is full of history relics, so we’ll recommend visiting Blaca Monastery which was built in the 16th century by Glogthic monks. Also, very close to the small village called Murvica, there is a very interesting location called Dragon’s Cave. Getting more interested? Well, you should want to visit this site with all the mysterious writings and drawings on the walls, supposably by the monks who once settled the cave.
We’re getting to the point you’re all waiting for. Well, if you’ve heard anything about island Brac, you’ve probably heard about Golden Horn beach, or you’ve maybe seen the picture of it a thousand times but just didn’t know it was this popular beach on this self-sustainable island. So as the symbol of island Brač, this place should be a must while on the island. It is located near the Bol town and considered one of the most beautiful beaches OF THE WORLD. This destination Is even protected by the Croatian government as a geo-morphological monument. Wondering why? The answer is also the answer to all the questions about why this beach is popular – its shape. The shape of the beach is never the same, depending on the time of the year, on the winds and currents, the ‘horn’ of the beach can be straight or crocked on the side. Although this is the most unique beach that never has the same shape, it is surrounded by the crystal cleat sea that changes its shades from turquoise blue to the darkest blue colors in just a couple of meters.
On the day 5 of this yacht charter program, you’ll be able to visit this beach and spend the night in Milna, a small fishing village located on the west side of the island. Although you can create your tailor-made journey through Croatian islands with our recommendations, we always love to suggest our clients to take a look at some of the most popular programs here.
