Bra? Island may not be as popular as its neighbouring island
retreats, but its appeal lies in the fact it offers travellers an authentic
look into island life. The history of this large island extends into Neolithic
times, making this a must-go destination for anyone that is passionate about
history. With several towns, peaceful villages and dramatic landscapes, Bra?
Island boasts plenty of charm. Along the rocky shores are some magnificent
spots to marvel at the unspoilt views, and even dive below depths to experience
a relatively unseen side of the island - particularly at Lu?ice Bay. There are
also a handful of gorgeous beaches on the island, including Zlatni Rat beach
which is accredited as one of Croatia’s best beaches; this long pebble beach is
so beautiful that it features heavily on much of the advertising for the
country! Perfect for a photo opportunity, as well as catching some well-earnt
sun. Food is plentiful and rich in flavour, partly due to the fact that olive
cultivation has been cemented as part of island life since the Venetian years.
A rare variety of olives called buhavica grow here, so be sure to make a couple
of trips to local restaurants to try them for yourself. Walk off these meals by
exploring the island on one of the tours that are readily available. To uncover
