Brač is a Croatian island located along the Dalmatian coast, a few hundred km south of Zagreb
and 5-10 km from the mainland. It extends for 40km from east to west and 13 km from north to south, with a total area of 396 km². The highest elevation of the island is Mount Vidova Gora (780m).
Brač has a couple of interesting old monasteries (Pustinja Blaca and a Dominican monastery in Bol), but the main reason to visit the island is its coast. Along the southern coast near Bol lies the most popular beach, Zlatni Rat (golden cape). It is a promontory composed mostly of pebble stones which extends for 200-300m into the sea with long, beautiful beaches on both sides.
How to get to Brač
Brač has an airport located in the south of the island, not far from Bol. The airport is currently being expanded so that it can handle standard Airbus A320 jets. It has seasonal flights to Bozen, Milan and Zagreb. There are car ferry services in Supetar (to/from Split) and Sumartin (to/from Makarska). Getting to the mainland takes less than one hour.
Brač is a tourist hotspot with plenty of accomodation options (hotels, apartments etc.), most bookable via the international booking portals.
