Supetar travel guide
The main town on Brac island with a large harbour surrounded by restaurants and cafes; beaches nearby.
Supetar on the north side of Brac island
is the largest town on the island. The numerous passenger and car ferries come to Supetar from Split
, a lovely 50 minute scenic ride. On Brac there is also a small airport
, about 30 min drive from Supetar. On arriving by ferry or a yacht it is a beautiful sight to see the Supetar harbour with its charming stone houses crowding around it. Walk into any one of the local restaurants for refreshments, the food is excellent, fresh, simple, tasty and home cooked. If you are travelling by car, this is the place to stock up in the local supermarket. The town has many restaurants and shops, and quite a lot of history and culture.
Go and see early Christian mosaics from the 6th century where an early Christian Basilica used to stand, have a look at the Church of St Mary as well as the sculptures of the 19th century sculptor Ivan Rendic in his gallery. A great family resort with sandy and pebbly beaches, good for swimming and sunbathing and a variety of water sports on offer. In the evening the centre is busy with cocktail bars and evening street markets
