About Brela

Small village of cottages and villas clustered on the hillside above one of the most photographed beaches in Croatian.

Brela is a small village of cottages and villas clustered on the hillside just above one of the best sandy beaches on the Croatian coast. The houses nestle among the greenery and pine trees, with lovely sea views and a few minutes walk to the fantastically clean and warm sea. The village is 14 km away from the tourist resort of Makarska. The region is famous for thick pine woods stretching down to the pristine beaches, wine growing, olive oil, figs and excellent cherries. This is an area of the Croatian coastline best known for its beautiful pebbly/sandy beaches, one of which was voted number one beach in Europe in 2003 and 2005 by Forbes magazine.
