Brac Island (pronounced “Bratch”) is the longest and most elevated island in central Dalmatia. Despite its proximity to Split, Brac is less touristed than the glittering islands of Hvar and Korcula further south. Brac is a relatively dry island; you won’t find the lush vegetation of, say Korcula or Hvar, but there are some lovely spots along the rocky shores and great scuba diving from Lucice Bay.
Don’t miss the olive oil in Brac! The olives are of a rare variety called buhavica and there’s over a half-million trees.
Brac is most famous for its beautiful white building stone which has been exploited since ancient Rome. Diocletian’s Palace in Split was built from Brac stone and it is still used in the construction of buildings as far afield as Europe and north America.
