Croatia

Croatia’s dazzling coastline is home to more than one thousand islands –read that If you were to look out to sea from anywhere along the Croatian coastline, it would be unusual for you not to see a green speck in the distance!

One of the livelier islands, Brac is famous for Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) beach in the town of Bol

Island Brac, the largest island of the central Dalmatian group of islands, the third largest among the Adriatic islands; area 394.57 sq km; population 13,824. It is separated from the mainland by the Brac Channel, from the island of Solta by the so-called Splitska Vrata (Split Gate) and from the Island of Hvar by the Hvar Channel.

The highest peak of the island, Vidova Gora (Vitus' Mount) (778 m), is also the highest peak of all Croatian islands.

The limestone part of the coast is rocky and steep, while the rest is rather low and sandy (on the southern side from Farska to Bol, and on the northern side from Sutivan to Supetar).

 Walking is a pleasure on this island - many old paths and roads criss cross the island and these make for excellent walking.

SutivanThe island landscape is dominated by a karst limestone relief, with numerous gullies, crevices, cavities, round valleys and coves. Milder forms of the relief, with brown Primorje soils (the most fertile on the island), are found mostly in the interior (especially between Lozisca and Nerezisca, as well as between Selca, Novo Selo and Sumartin).

Composed primarily of limestone and dolomite, the quarries of the island of Brac have been a source of stone for building decorative stonework for centuries. The old Romans have known its quality and used this very stone to build cities, amphitheaters, temples, palaces and graves all over Dalmatia.

There are no surface water streams on the island. Permanent water sources are provided only around Bol. Higher parts of the island (above 400 m) are covered with black and Aleppo pine forests; larger or smaller forests of Aleppo pine are found around all coastal towns and villages; dominant are dense evergreen underbrush

What Others Said...

Lakes The hotel was very nice; I had a lovely room with big, fluffy bath towels, nice toiletries. Food is great both in quantity and quality and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The Guided walking was all really good -well organised and I felt safe. Jill is a superb guide and Charlie is a lovely new addition to the team. As a return client it was lovely to be greeted like a friend by Jill. She had also researched some new walks, one of them being to Black Crags which was lovely. She also remembered my dislike for drops and was there to help me in a very sensitive and discreet way. I love my holidays with you and will definitely book another one. I also think your Loyalty scheme is very generous and a great incentive.
