Brela, Beach, Croatia

A popular resort for relaxing family holidays, Brela has some great beaches and is the first resort you come to when travelling from Split.

The new part of the town is down by the sea whilst the original older (upper) town is within the boundaries of the Biokovo Nature Park.

The Punta Rata gravel beach has been acknowledged as one of the most beautiful beaches by Forbes magazine. This beach is located very near to our chosen hotel in this resort. There are a total of 6kms of beach many backed by large pine trees so shade is near at hand too.

In the centre of town there are several restaurants and bars plus restaurants and other facilities can be found along the promenade by the sea.

What to do in Brela

Most activities are, naturally, water based here, snorkelling, paragliding with a boat, kayaking, jetskiing and more.

Walkers will find some excellent routes here and for the more committed hiker there are some excellent opportunities in the Biokovo Nature Park, but we do recommend you take a guided hike here.

Perhaps take a boat trip to Brac or take a tour of the nature park, Split is only an hour away for some exploring of one of Croatia’s fascinating cities.

There are various festivals and events in this area throughout the summer and there is sure to be something of interest to you whether it is gastronomic, historic or music.
