Brac Travel Guide

Nearby to the popular destination of Split, Brac boasts some lovely coves and bays and gives visitors an interesting glimpse into authentic island life.  Brac is perhaps most famous for its glittering white stone - used to build the White House in Washington DC - and Zlatni Rat, the long lavish beach which extends into the Adriatic. 

As the largest island in central Dalmatia, Brac boasts several towns, villages and a Dramatic Mediterranean landscape of steep cliffs, pine forest and inky waters. 

All of our Croatian destinations can be visited independently as a Croatian self-drive holiday, a coastal cruise or an organised land tour. Escorted tours will often include transportation, an expert local guide and entrance to attractions such as National Parks, cathedrals and monuments.
