Island of Brač highlights

Stroll through the beautiful town where man and stone live together before departing for Bol.
Bol is the home to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Zlatni rat beach.

Go for a swim, enjoy the sun, grab a cocktail or have a walk around the town, the choice is yours.
Before departing back to Split, you will stop for a beautiful photo opportunity on the highest peak of any Croatian island, Vidova Gora.
