Although less glamorous and more laid back than its neighbour, Hvar, Brač has everything a vacationer wants—plus a lot of mystery. The beach at Bol is a natural wonder, with its long, sandy pebbled tongue changing shape with the tides. Cafes, changing rooms, deep shade and even a nude swimming section make this beach a must for sun lovers and swimmers alike. Off the coast, fascinating places like Blaca Monastery, hand built out of the cliffs, is a marvel of human ingenuity.
Škrip, a hilltop stone village wi a restored olive mill complex, memorable. Famed for its white marble, used by the ancient Romans to facade their public buildings well as by modern architects affluent homeowners today, Brač has one of the few stone-masonry schools to teach this art and at Donji Humac you can see artists working with it. Charming seaside hamlets like Povlja, Pučišća and Sumartin and some of the best olive oil on the planet all add to the Brač magic.
