Visiting the Beaches of Brac on a Croatia Sailing Holiday
Lying in the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea and just off the coast of Split, the island of Brac is one of the most popular in Croatia. From the highest mountain of the Adriatic islands to top notch water sports, any visitor to Brac on a Croatia sailing break will have a plethora of sights and activities to choose from. However, it is Brac’s beaches that really take the crown; below are some of its best.
Zlatni Rat Beach
Generally touted as the most beautiful beach in Croatia, Zlatni Rat in the town of Bol, stands out for its unique triangle shape, jutting like an arrow into the surrounding seas. Its white shingle shore stretches for almost 580 yards making for a dazzling spectacle that cannot be found elsewhere.
To the west, just around the corner from Zlatni Rat, visitors after a slightly more liberating experience can find the naturist sands of Paklina beach. Dotted with rocky coves and small beaches in between it is the perfect spot for a quieter, more private beach experience away from the crowds.
In the north of the island, between Pucisce and Postira, lies Lovrecina cove, a spot famed on the island for its large stretch of sandy beach as well as the precious archaeological remains found there. History buffs can combine sun with sightseeing with a walk around the ruins of the 5th century St Lawrence Basilica that serve as a beautiful and unusual backdrop to the shoreline.
While Supetar itself is a bustling town, its beaches are comparatively quiet and a lovely, tranquil alternative to the beaches found elsewhere on Brac. Stretching westwards from the town’s harbour, the shingle stretches provide clean blue seas and sun kissed shores, with all the shopping and dining amenities of Supetar town just minutes away.
