Each Friday, we make a list of 5 things you should eat/try/do/see/etc. while you’re on Brač. This time, we’re bringing you 5 things to do while you’re in Selca.

Note – when we say Selca, we mean the entire municipality, consisting of the villages Sumartin, Povlja, Novo Selo, and Selca.

#1 Count the monuments around Selca. 

Selca is the place with the most monuments per capita, so take your time and find them.

#2 Say a prayer for all the sailors!

Saint Nicolas is a sailors‘ patron saint and near Selca there is a small old church of St. Mikula, so visit it and remember all those at the sea.

#3 Find buhavica. And get rich! 

Buhavica is a sort of olive, you can find it near Novo Selo, and the olive oil made of buhavica is quite pricey but it is worth every penny.

#4 See if there’s any truth in the legend of German shipwrecks in Luke bay.

A legend says that there was a German shipwreck near Luke bay so go diving and find the treasure.

#5 Befriend a local and ask to take you to Spilice.

Spilice are a beautiful isolated beach but you will probably need a boat to get there.
