The rocky island of Brač is much more rural and relaxed than its famous neighbor Hvar. A must visit on your Dalmatian Coast itinerary, Brač is home to the iconic Zlatni Rat Beach, the charming harbor town of Bol, and a ruggedly beautiful coastline. In fact, the rocky terrain here is quite famous in its own right. The brilliant white stone found throughout the island has been used to build a number of recognizable buildings throughout the history of man, including Diocletian’s Palace in nearby Split and the White House in Washington D.C.!
The first stop on your Brač excursion should include some beach time at Zlatni Rat. The unique, pebbly beach juts out like a mini peninsula into the Adriatic. The very end of the beach constantly changes shape with the fluctuation of the tide and current.
Next, head to Bol. This relaxed town has the most charming little harbor area lined by sidewalk cafés. Stroll up the inclined path at the end of the harbor and you’ll come upon a quaint medieval church, along with beautiful panoramic views. Grab a lovely lunch at the unassuming Moby Dick Café, and then spend your afternoon scootering around the island or sailing along the coastline. For dinner, Taverna Riva serves the best local cuisine in town, and their outdoor terrace setting couldn’t be more lovely.
