Island Brač

Island Brač

The island of Brač is the highest and the third largest island in the Adriatic Sea, a true micro-continent brimming with valuable cultural and historic heritage, breathtakingly beautiful nature, and stunning beaches.
The marvellous Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) beach in Bol is one of the principal and most recognisable symbols of not only the island of Brač but of Croatia’s entire coastline.
Like a long hand that reaches out over the waters for nearly a thousand metres, this beach is caressed by the turquoise, crystal-clear sea in 50 shades of blue, and its tip changes shape, like fingers playing with the wind, waves, and sea currents.

Island Brač

Crowned with gorgeous coves and fragrant cypresses forests, the island of Brač will put a spell on you with all the many places that feel steeped in that special Mediterranean lifestyle.

The highest island mountain on the Adriatic

Vidova Gora on the island of Brač is the highest mountain and one of the most beautiful viewpoints of the Adriatic. It has a shape of an elongated karst ridge stretching along the southern coast of Brač.

The sides of this ridge are entirely different. The southern face descends steeply, with cliffs sloping into the sea towards the town of Bol. The northern face is a karst highland mild slope of some ten kilometres of width. This highland is for the most part covered with scarce shrubland and Mediterranean macchia and the area of Kneževravni under Vidova Gora is populated with black pinewood. This vast highland covers more than half of the island, it is entirely deserted and uninhabited, and all larger settlements, except for Nerežišće, are located on the coast. Globally, Brač is known for its white marble excavated and processed on several locations on the island.
