Brac Island, Croatia (6/18-22/2009)
Brac Island is a pretty Dalmatian Island with lots to enjoy and discover.
Brac Island, the largest of the Dalmatian Islands in Croatia, has a main export of white marble. Brac’s lustrous white marble stone was used in building the U.S. White House in Washington DC.
Beaches here are covered with small white stones and shaded by pine trees - pretty nice.
We took the ferry from Split to Brac and played a day on the white stone beaches around Supetar.
Staying in a private apartment in a neighborhood in Supetar afforded Wayne the opportunity to sit with the local men who gathered every afternoon for a serious contest of bocce ball. The private rooms in Brac, Croatia, share a nice kitchen where you can relax and fix snacks.
We took a day trip to beautiful Milna before going to the famous Zlatni Rat Beach in Bol.
Bol's Zlatni Rat Beach is the beach you see pictured in all the advertisements for Brac and Croatia (see photo).
We got caught in a thunderstorm one night but were able to go to a neighborhood restaurant (2 doors down) and talk the night away with people from all other the world. Brac's Bol town is very pretty town to explore.
