Brac Island is the third largest island of Croatia. It is a mountainous island, whose interior is dominated by beautiful karst landscapes and forest covered peaks. Brac Island is a stunningly beautiful island, surrounded by steep cliffs and long sandy beaches. Self catering Brac apartments and villas are perfect for relaxing sun blessed holidays, from which you will wake every morning with a huge smile as you gaze over the remarkable, unspoilt natural surroundings and contemplate what the day might bring.
The Roman heritage of Brac is evident across the island, with stone cities, magnificent amphitheatres, glorious temples and extravagant palaces. Each of the 5 deserted Roman settlements on the island gives you a renewed sense of intrigue and fascination, further endearing you to this marvellous island.
Scuba diving in Brac has become a hugely popular option for divers. There are some magnificent dives to be done, and even beginners have the chance to have a go, as there are top class diving schools in Bol, which is within reach of every holiday rental apartment in Brac.
The beaches of Brac are delightful places to spend a few days from a Brac villa. The white sand gives way to coarser golden sand, but there is so much variation around the coastline that you will almost certainly find your private piece of paradise. The famous Zlatni rat (Golden cap) is a favourite place to go, and is one of the most famous images of Brac Island, with its distinctive ‘y’ shape.
Sailing holidays are a great way to take full advantage of self catering Brac accommodation. The freedom and flexibility provided by a private rental means that you can set out on some marvellous expeditions around the Dalmatian Islands and discover some of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean.
Bol has arisen as one of the most popular places to go on holiday in Brac. Blessed with the staggering pebble beach of Zlatni rat, Bol has become a magnet for those seeking a mix of culture, peace, nightlife and beaches. The town is also home to diving centres, windsurfing and a range of water sports. Bol’s nightlife is exuberant and lively with the best choice of bars, restaurants and nightclubs available from a Brac apartment.
Supetar is a beautiful harbour town nestled in a crescent shaped bay. This is usually the first place you see upon arrival in Brac, and is the cultural hotspot of the island, and a great place to start investigating when you arrive at a self catering Brac villa. Supertar is famed for its excellent beaches and sailing heritage, as well as the prehistoric, Ancient Greek and Roman artefacts which surround the town. Walkers and mountain bikers will be right at home in a Brac apartment in Supertar too.
With over 2,700 hours of glorious sunshine every year, Brac basks in summer temperatures of over 35?C for much of June and August, and only slightly cooler in May and October.
There is an airport which receives a number of flights every week from Zagreb, which in turn receives daily flights from across the UK. Alternatively, your Brac apartment can be reached via the car ferries from the mainland, which arrive into Supertar and Sumartin from the Dalmatian Mainland.
