The Dalmatia region
When someone talks about if there is a heaven on earth, many people would say yes and talk about Island Brac, the heart of Croatia. Along the Dalmatian coast in the Adriatic Sea, the beautiful Island Brac awaits for you to come and enjoy its beauty and peacefulness. Who would not like to have a honeymoon or a nice vacation along with the entire family at the Adriatic island after knowing some important things that I am about to uncover.
Brac Island is the largest in central Dalmatia region in Croatia.
Limestone formations loom above jagged coves, then give way to gorgeous sand and gravel beaches.
The main attraction of the Island of Brac is the amazing Zlatni Rat Beach (Golden Cape), a spectacular jewel of nature, considered by many the most beautiful beach on the Adriatic. Its unusual shape like a tongue spread out in the sea attracts people very much along with its naturally changing shape and position varying on the wind directions leave people astonished. The beach is used for sporting events round the year and quickly catches the attention for the people who like windsurfing, kitesurfing and paragliding.
While visiting Island Brac, after Zlatni beach, one should visit Vidova Mountains, Dragon's Cave, Desert Blaca and numerous amazing pebble and sandy beaches and bays on the north coast to increase the pleasure and amusement. Island Brac would give you the best time of your life, away from all the hassles and getting to know the true beauty of nature.
Zmajeva Spilja (Dragon's Cave) is the site of Slavic myths about fairies, werewolves and witches and Mediterranean stories about Orkomarin, a one-eyed cave-dwelling giant.
Vidova Gora (Vidova Mountains) is the highest point of the Adriatic archipelago (780 m).
It offers a clear view of the beach, mountain slopes and on some of the Dalmatian islands. You can explore this part of the island on bicycle or on foot.
Vidova Gora has footpaths and bike trails and is a well-known destination in the health and hunting tourist industries. The trek consists of various terrain; at one point it may be rocky and steep while at other times the trail is low and sandy.
The most popular hike on the island is from Vidova Gora to Blaca Hermitage.
Blaca Hermitage is one of the most fascinating excursion destinations on the island. The Hermitage was once a famous Glagolitic monastery and observatory, built at the foot of tall, steep cliffs.
Brac Island itself has a extensively developed network of white roads and single tracks for mountain biking. The paths have virtually no traffic, and the natural scenery of pine woods, olive fields, and secluded beaches combined with the mix of easy and challenging terrain makes this one picturesque adventure.
Brac Island has had many rulers during its history, but its spirit remains unchanged and is best expressed in its most enduring product - the famous Brac stone. Some of that spirit has been incorporated in historical buildings, such as Diocletian's Palace in Split, and more modern edifices, such as The White House in Washington. Every little village on the island has a beautiful old church. Most of the buildings and houses are made of blocks of stone, which has its own special kind of beauty. Villages scattered along the coast and in the interior of the Island of Brac are like stone monuments, guarding the rich heritage of the past centuries.
Opportunities for adrenaline activities
The popular Huffington Post drew attention to Brac Island: „Although there are great destinations for adventure holidays, which have proved worth a visit, there are also some lesser-known regions that have a lot to offer. One of them is a Croatian island of Brac, an area that abounds in opportunities for adrenaline activities".
Scuba dive underwater caves
Brac is home to some excellent scuba diving,
especially because the island receives such little
rainfall, making for very clear visibility. One great place is Lucica Cave, located in the biggest cove on the island on Brac's southeast coast. The entrance to the cave is near the exit of the cove, about 10 feet underwater. Once you enter the aquatic cave, the average depth you will experience is about 58 feet, although at times it goes as deep as 134.5 feet. You will be amazed at the expansiveness of the cave, as well as the size of the fish. If you'd like you can take a diving course or go with a guide in Brac.
Windsurf or Kiteboard in the channel between Brac and Hvar Island.
Make your way over to Brac Island and experience the ideal place for windsurfing. The channel between Brac Island and Hvar Island is well-known for its maestral winds that cause stable weather conditions that are perfect for windsurfing.
The winds in this area are also stronger than anywhere else on the island, with mild winds in the morning, perfect for getting your practice in.
Kiteboarding, water skiing, wake boarding, and para-sailing are also popular in this area.
Rock climb in the Lozisca region
In Brac, there are over 100 rock climbing routes of varying intensities for visitors to enjoy. The climbing area in Lozisca, a village located in a simple stone glade, is the perfect place for beginner and intermediate climbers due to its variety of available routes. You can get to the village easily from the nearby areas of Sutivan and Supetar.
Climbs in this area give participants great views of the the diverse landscape as rolling hills, green valleys, and shimmering water can be seen all at once.
Sea kayak in an ideal location
Brac Island is a premier location for sea kayaking for people of all levels, mostly because of its predictability in terms of winds and currents. It is also very safe, as no matter where you are a beach is only 10 minutes away by kayak. The island also enjoys many areas with little tourism so the water and land can be enjoyed in a truly natural setting. For a more challenging kayaking adventure, the nearby islands of Hvar and solta are just few hours of paddling away.
Try the island's popular sport of stand up paddle boarding
Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), which is a form of surfing that allows for increased visibility, can be done anywhere on Brac Island. One very natural route is Sutivan-Bobovisca. Begin at Sutivan and go along the northwest shore, paddling along a construction-free area of small pebble beaches with almost no boat traffic. For a longer, more challenging route, go all the way to Bobovisca, a town rich in cultural history.
Channel your inner circus performer and try slacklining! First introduced to Croatia during their annual extreme sports festival, slacklining has become a favorite adventure sport on Brac Island. Think of it as walking a tightrope, as participants walk on a flat nylon rope that is attached to two points. It is usually done during the break of climbing sessions or after them during dinner time. For example, after climbing or biking, groups are taken to an authentic shepherd's village for a traditional dinner, a lamb meal, and while waiting for the dinner a slackline is set up in the village among the trees.
Attend the annual extreme sports festival, Vanka Regule, every year in July
For a week every July in Sutivan on Brac Island, people flock from all over the world to attend the extreme sports festival, Vanka Regule. Since 1999, free climbing, trail running, sea kayaking, mountain biking, free diving, dry tooling, and more are enjoyed by attendees. Along with doing and watching active sports, there is a film festival to go along with the theme.
It is never too late to make some reservations and take off from work for a few days. When it comes to Island Brac, doing anything whatever it takes to visit the place is worth it. Trust me, it would be the best place visited by you and your family.
