About Brac Island and Brac Villas

The Brac island is Croatia’s third largest island and the largest island in Dalmatia, located in the center of this Dalmatian region. Not only is it the largest island in central Dalmatia, it is also the highest island of all islands in the Adriatic with the highest peak at Vidova Gora where it reaches 778 meters. It is not problematic to reach the top, either by car or by hiking if you are looking for a bit more active vacation, and when you get there you are free to enjoy the view over to the Zlatni Rat Beach on Brac, Hvar island and others. The weather is very sunny on Brac, with around 2700 hours of sun per year. There is a couple of resorts to visit on Brac, such as Supetar, Bol ( the home to the spectacular beach Golden Horn and one of the most famous in the Adriatic), Sutivan, Milna and Sumartin.

One of the main reasons to visit Brac are its beaches, some of the best in Croatia. The most famous one is Zlatni Rat, or Golden Horn in Bol, a white pebble beach that is certanly one of the most beautiful in Croatia. The beach streches out into the Hvar Channel, where the top of the shape of the beach changes its shape because of the strong currents in that part of the sea, the tide and the winds.. This specific phenomena made it a symbol of Croatian tourism. Other beaches on Brac are pebble, rocky and some places even sandy, such as the Lovrecine, Paklina in Bol, Murvica, Osibova Bay near Milna and others.
