Postira travel guide
Lively harbour surrounded by restaurants and cafes, a great family holiday destination with beaches a short walk from the villas.
Postira's is a traditional and very old, small seaside town on the north of Brac island
, easily reached from Split
on the ferry to Supetar
. The whole island is based on fishing and olive and citrus cultivation, and recently tourism. The wild thyme, sage, rosemary and mint give a special flavour to the famous Brac lamb which roams freely, and the Postira restaurants base their menu on this local produce. Don't miss the local speciality The Adriatic Queen sardines. Postira have derived its name from "pasture", the place where lambs go to feed! The old town is charming, with old town houses made of beautiful Brac stone, narrow streets and a small and pretty harbour. There are good shops, supermarkets, bakeries and seaside restaurants along the harbour. Beaches in and around Postira are gorgeous and easy to reach, such as Mala Lozna pebble beach, and Lovrecina and Prvlja sandy beaches which are especially beautiful.
All main water sports and equipment hire are available. Day trips to Split, Hvar and the lovely Brac villages (Bol for windsurfing) will keep you busy. There is even a desert with a monastery.Summer events are "Postira Summer" with outdoor shows, concerts, dance and local singing. From Postira you can see the Split
coastline and wonderful sights of the thousand shimmering mainland lights at night time.
