LOCATION

Brač is a Mediterranean island famous for its cultural heritage, deeply indented coves, smooth stone pebble beaches, crystal clear sea, and rustic Mediterranean villages. This unique Adriatic island is bestowed with Croatian symbols such as Vidova Gora — one of the most beautiful viewpoints and the highest peak on the Adriatic coast.
Another treasure is the Golden Cape — a natural white pebbled beach formation that sticks out of the sea like a tongue. Lonely Planet listed it in the first place of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia. These remarkable natural properties and the islands’ relaxed vibe make Brač a top-rated destination for windsurfers, sports lovers, and adventure seekers.
