Brač is the largest island in Dalmatia, and the third largest in Croatia. It is known for its wine, olive oil, goat cheese and high-quality marble used to build the White House, as well as the Diocletian’s Palace in Split, the Canadian National Vimy Memorial and many other monuments throughout the world. Brač is one of the most popular Croatian tourist destinations because of its clean blue sea, lots of sunshine (2700 hours a year) and beautiful beaches. Zlatni rat (meaning “the Golden Cape”) is among the most beautiful beaches in Europe, stretching far away into the open sea and changing its size and shape depending on the winds, tides and currents, which also make it a great windsurfing location. Unlike other Croatian islands, Brač is also a good destination for hikers – Vidova gora (Mount St. Vid) is the tallest Adriatic island peak with its 780 meters (2,559 feet). The island is also well connected – there is an airport in Bol, as well as the ferry route from Split. The people from Brač are known as extremely stingy – one of our many jokes about them states that the Scots came to be when the people from Brač outcast the wasteful! Regardless of whether you’d believe this stereotype or not, there is so much to see, which makes Brač worth visiting. The larger towns of the island are Supetar, Bol, Postira and Milna.
