Things to do in Brač, Croatia
Tour Trolokve: Near Vidova Gora, you will find Trolokve, a natural phenomenon also known as the three puddles. What was once the only location on the island for clean water has now become a stopping point with beautiful scenery.
Vidova Gora: The highest point on the island (and in all of the Adriatic) that can be accessed by car or by foot. This spot overlooks Zlatni Rat and gives spectacular views of the Adriatic and Croatia's other islands.
Museum Uja: An olive oil museum? You betcha. The museum is small, but the tasting is oh so worth it. Enjoy the short tour and experience freshly prepared Dalmatian cuisine.
Supetar Bay: The main ferry port on the island is in the town of Supetar. The bay has an array of restaurants, shops, and water activities, including an aqua park with an inflatable course. It is every bit the small summer beach town.
Zlatni Rat (aka Golden Horn Beach): A pebble beach (so bring your water shoes) that juts out into the incredibly blue sea. This beach is ideal for the whole family. There are rentals like paddleboards and kayaks. Or spend the day on a speedboat and grab a bite to eat at one of the five eateries under the shade. It's easy to spend a whole day at this beach!
Lovrecina Beach: A rare sand beach (water shoes still advised) in a small bay on the northern part of the island, Lovrecina is quiet with water so clear you won't even need goggles. Take a walk to one of the nearby restaurants for lunch or go to the nearby Lidl and pack for a picnic.
Day trip to the Blue Caves: A trip to this part of Croatia is not complete without an outing to the blue caves. What's even better is that you can swim in and out of these caves. Most tours will take you to lunch, secret and pristine beaches, and even the surrounding islands.
Sunset Kayaking: What's better than kayaking? Sunset Kayaking. The area of Postira is the best place to rent a kayak. Head over to Lovrecina Beach and experience the archaeological heritage sites.
Day trip to one of the many islands nearby like Hvar or Vis.
