Sutivan travel guide
Pretty harbour town on Brac island; focus as a bike friendly destination. Bike hire and cycle routes as well as beaches and boating
This village, on the north west side of Brac island
, is 1700 years old. Roman noblemen had their villas in Sutivan. There is a lot of history in the village, which was en-route from Venice to the East and had some grand old ships moored there laden with soldiers or exquisite merchandise. Dominated by an elegant medieval church with a substantial tower, the stone houses and noble summer palazzos are lined along the little port and into the bay called Likve, leading to some wonderful beaches with crystal clear sea. Olive groves, mandarin gardens and vineyards surround the village, which is quite tranquil, except for a few summer fetes and shows. It is a very sporty place which organises football and boules competitions in May, and there are opportunities for volleyball, beach volleyball, basketball in the Park of Nature and bike hire. Small children will find swings and sand to play. It is a quiet, but lively place with lots of sunshine and good food on offer in local cafes and restaurants, hiking and biking trails and water sports.
