Discover Brac, a pleasant island amid the Adriatic Sea, in southern Croatia. Accessible via mainland ferry from Split and Makarska, Brac’s capital Supetar is known for its laid back vibe. Quiet port towns and quaint fishing villages dot the arid landscape, flanked by pristine white sand beaches such as the iconic Zlatni Rat beach. Further inland, Brac’s rolling valleys are draped in acres of rare Buhavica olives. In Skrip, you can visit a museum that showcases the island’s history of olive cultivation dating back to the Venetian times. Meanwhile, in Bol, the Stina Winery on the main promenade produces some of Croatia’s finest wines. Nearby, centuries-old caves and monasteries offer unique cultural insights into this island’s heritage and people. Another coastal town, Pucisca, is renowned for Europe’s only lapidary school, along with sculptures carved using Brac’s famous white stone. Heritage and cultural delights aside, Brac boasts the highest peak in the Adriatic Islands, the Vidova Gora, which affords spectacular panoramas. The surrounding highlands present several hiking and biking trails through endemic pine forests. The Maestral winds in southern Brac offer ideal conditions for water sports.
Bluesun Hotel Elaphusa is a modern getaway, amid lush gardens overlooking Borak beach, on the southern coast of Brac island, Croatia. It enjoys close proximity to central Bol village and the famous Zlatni Rat beach.
