It was my second visit to Brac, one of the most picturesque places I have visited, from the balcony of our apartment, I could see the beautiful mountains of Split across the water, all the white buildings with the terracotta roofs (they’re my favourite) and for whatever reason I feel very happy. Not just for the fact that I am on holiday, but possibly because I am a Mediterranean girl at heart, as much as I love the cities with skyscrapers and the business of it all, I love the calm and serenity that the Island of Brac has to offer.
It is similar to Hvar, without the reputation of the ‘new Ibiza’. The small town, which surrounds the harbour, where there are numerous restaurants offering pasta and pizza dishes as well as meat and fish specialities. Palm trees line the streets and the seaside and it seems like the sun is always shining.
Water sports and trips around the island can be offered from numerous kiosks and a day trip to the other side of the island to a place called ‘Bol’ is a must, as it hosts a world famous beach – Zlatini Beach, or Rat beach – a triangular piece of land sticking out from the rest of the island, surrounded by sand either side, making it very popular for tourists and locals alike.
