Milna, the scenic harbour
Brač is the biggest of the Dalmatian Islands, which is facing Split, the city with a rich cultural history. On the West coast of the island, lying along a mile-long bay, you can reach Milna, the scenic harbour, that holds a significant nautical tourism due to its yacht ports.
There are many ways to spend your valuable days of relaxation here. It is a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, keeping it within reach, if it pleases you. A promenade in the village or in the valleys filled with tangerine plantation can make an unforgettable memory just as a lone contemplation at sunrise on the coast or at sunset with its magical lights, maybe a dinner in a local „konoba”. Every season and land reveals something one-of-a-kind. On the island of Brač there is the highest peak of the Croatian islands, Vidova Gora (778 m), from where the view of the Dalmatian archipelago is unmatched, also you can see the famous pebbly beach of Zlatni Rat („Golden Horn”) that shapes as the wind changes.
