Renting one of Brac island apartments has many advantages, compared with other islands like Hvar and Korcula.

The first and foremost advantage is its vicinity to Split port and excellent connectivity by car ferries as well by catamarans (fast foot passengers ships).

The second advantage of hiring apartments on Brac island which for many visitors is even more important lies in affordable prices, but also the quality that this type of accommodation offers.

Getting to Brac Island

Whether you are traveling by car or just as a foot passenger, it’s important to stay informed on how to reach Brac island.

The fact that Brac island is reachable by only two ferry car connections, the shortest one from Split to Supetar and alternative from Makarska to Sumartin, renting a private apartment in Bol or Milna means you will have another 35 km from Supetar to Bol and 20 km to Milna.

A road network has been constructed throughout the island, making it easy to travel by car. You shouldn’t worry too much about getting to Brac as a foot passenger, as regular bus services connect all parts of the island. But you should keep in mind that all services begin or end in Supetar.
