Brac is the largest island in the central Dalmatian region and sits an hours ferry ride to the south of Split. The catamaran connects Bol with Split and Hvar and the regular car ferry connects Split with Supetar.
The islands main town is Bol located in the south of the island, home of Zlatni Rat beach, considered one of Croatia's best beaches and certainly one of the most photographed. There are many smaller towns dotted around the coast with quaint harbours, picture-perfect stone houses and quiet shingle bays.
Brac is perhaps best known for its stone, quarried from the Pucisca area it's helped lay the foundations of Diocletian's Palace and the White House, to name a few.
The interior landscape is dry and covered in olive groves with Vidova Gora Mountain rising to 778m.
