Croatia’s dazzling coastline is home to more than one thousand islands –read that If you were to look out to sea from anywhere along the Croatian coastline, it would be unusual for you not to see a green speck in the distance!

One of the livelier islands, Brac is famous for Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) beach in the town of Bol

Island Brac, the largest island of the central Dalmatian group of islands, the third largest among the Adriatic islands; area 394.57 sq km; population 13,824. It is separated from the mainland by the Brac Channel, from the island of Solta by the so-called Splitska Vrata (Split Gate) and from the Island of Hvar by the Hvar Channel.

The highest peak of the island, Vidova Gora (Vitus' Mount) (778 m), is also the highest peak of all Croatian islands.

The limestone part of the coast is rocky and steep, while the rest is rather low and sandy (on the southern side from Farska to Bol, and on the northern side from Sutivan to Supetar).

 Walking is a pleasure on this island - many old paths and roads criss cross the island and these make for excellent walking.

SutivanThe island landscape is dominated by a karst limestone relief, with numerous gullies, crevices, cavities, round valleys and coves. Milder forms of the relief, with brown Primorje soils (the most fertile on the island), are found mostly in the interior (especially between Lozisca and Nerezisca, as well as between Selca, Novo Selo and Sumartin).

Composed primarily of limestone and dolomite, the quarries of the island of Brac have been a source of stone for building decorative stonework for centuries. The old Romans have known its quality and used this very stone to build cities, amphitheaters, temples, palaces and graves all over Dalmatia.

There are no surface water streams on the island. Permanent water sources are provided only around Bol. Higher parts of the island (above 400 m) are covered with black and Aleppo pine forests; larger or smaller forests of Aleppo pine are found around all coastal towns and villages; dominant are dense evergreen underbrush

What Others Said...

Hi Alan & Chris - arrived home safe and sound,Steve took me to Buxton OK as arranged got back to Shotton for 1 o'clock. My windows will not open up your form so I will just say that I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Secret Hills and will certainly recommend them to all and sundry. The 4 days were much more than I expected and the care that you both took to make sure that we had a good time was really appreciated (at times it was like being in The Sound Of Music - did we pay extra for the singing Alan.......)All I can say is that I will start saving my pennies and if lucky I can perhaps experience one of your other walks. Thank you once again for a great experience. Sun still shining here in Connahs Quay so off to the woods once again with Hattie. Take care and tell Chris I can smell the apple and blackberry pie from here. All the best Trudy
