About the island
Brac is the largest and highest of the Dalmatian islands and has superb all year round climate. There is wealth of culture to explore: rural churches and monasteries, prehistoric cave dwellings, ancient Roman sarcophagi and archaeological sites. Famous for it’s white marble stone (used in the White House, Washington DC), the island has a culture of fishing, wine and olive oil making and also farming. Outside the little villages, the island is sparsely populated.
The well preserved landscape is covered with pine forests, olive groves, grapevines, fig trees, orange and lemon groves and vibrant bougainvillea’s. Follow narrow winding roads through charming villages; discover deserted beaches and spend long lunches in family run restaurants. For the more energetic activities, the island offers fishing, scuba diving and windsurfing, hiking, cycling, gliding and parasailing.
