Brač is easy to reach, but hard to forget! Now, it becomes even easier! Many have forgotten, and most do not know that Sutivan was once directly connected to the Split shipping line, and the number of species and species has changed over the years so that after the construction of the new ferry port in Supetar, Sutivan, as well as other coastal towns of Brac, remain with no direct connection to Split, with the exception of MB Mali Jure who tried to maintain the line for a few years and then quit.

The best thing to do on vacation? Relax. Here’s how.

Posted on in TO-DO by Dijana Šabić

People go on vacations to relax – that is their, or at least our, primary goal. To sip on some lemonade, beer or cocktail, lay by the beach, and just relax. Of course, this excludes evenings when all you want to do is soak up the island’s nightlife and dance the stress of work and your everyday life away. However, to fully relax your body (and mind!), there’s one thing which always helps – massage. You’re in luck, cause we know just the place to have one. Or two.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!

Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.

BY SEA ///

There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.

First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.

Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač DeluxeRent a Motorino or M&B rent.
