Brac is situated in the Adriatic Sea and is separated from the mainland of Croatia by the Brac channel, and from the Splitska Vrata by the Hvar Channel.
Brac offers a rich cultural and historic heritage which dates back to pre-historic times. The clear waters around the island attract water sports fans from all over Europe and the stunning beaches, including Zlatni Rat beach which is just 4km from the town of Bol.
The rocky coves of Lucice Bay are popular with scuba divers. The largest towns are Pucisca and Supetar. Delicious local products include olive oil, wine, cherries and almonds.
Brac is less touristy than the islands of Hvar and Korcula, and is the perfect destination for holidaymakers who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the busier resorts.
Vidova Gora (Mount Vitus) is the highest peak of all the Croatian islands at 778m.
