Brač Vacation Packages & Tours

The largest island in central Dalmatia, Brac offers dreamy landscapes with pine forests, steep cliffs, and cobalt waters. It’s best known for its gleaming white limestone that was used to build Diocletian’s Palace in Split and even the White House in Washington, D.C. the island is also famous for Zlatni Rat, a stunning beach that extends a third of a mile into the sea. Often named among Europe’s most beautiful, it’s frequently splashed across Croatian tourism ads, popular for swimming and relaxing with pine trees for shade.

Despite Brac’s proximity to Split, it’s less visited than glamorous islands like Hvar to the south. You’re unlikely to see the rich and famous pull into the harbors with their yachts. Instead, it’s a place to enjoy more authentic island life and a more tranquil setting for peaceful contemplation.

How many days do you need in Brac?

It is possible to see most of the highlights of Brac on a day trip from Split thanks to the many ferries running back and forth. That includes Zlatni Rat Beach, Blaca monastery, taking in the view from Vidova Gora, enjoying a scenic drive to Milna, and perhaps dining in Supetar. But ideally, you’ll have at least two full days which will give you time to cover it all without rushing. Many people like to spend a full afternoon or even an entire day at the beach. You could easily spend a week here, mixing up your exploits with time relaxing on the sand.

What is the best time to visit Zlatni Rat?

During the peak of the summer season, as many as 10,000 tourists visit Zlatni Rat every day. It tends to be less crowded in May/June or September/October. If you’re visiting during the busiest part of the year and want to enjoy it when it’s a bit more tranquil, consider arriving early in the morning or just before dusk.

 

What are the essential sites to see in Brac?

The No. 1 attraction in Brac is photogenic Zlatni Rat beach so be sure to spend some time there soaking up the scenery and enjoying a refreshing dip if you visit during the summer or early fall. For those up to the challenge, hiking to the highest point in the Croatian islands is essential. From the top of Vidova Gora, you’ll enjoy a panoramic view over Hvar, the mainland, and the sea.
