What to do on Brač
First and foremost, Brač is a true bathing paradise. There are a large number of beautiful beaches that are easy to reach. These offer bathing and water sports fans almost endless possibilities.
The most famous and spectacular beach is undoubtedly Zlatni Rat (“Golden Horn") on the edge of Bol, which protrudes like a dagger into the Adriatic Sea. The perfect beach for those who love variety. While on the western side a stronger wind and a stronger swell provide perfect conditions for sailing and surfing, the whole family – even with small children – can bathe safely on the east side in the warm and almost motionless water.
Lovers of fine sand should visit the picturesque beach of Lovrečina on the north side of the island.
Real insider tips are the countless small bays. These partly pretty hidden beaches offer bathing fun without renouncing privacy or romantic togetherness.
If you like action, you can do a quad tour through the rocky mountains of the island.
