Sutivan or as the locals call it Stivan is a small settlement 14 kilometres west of Supetar and is the centre of adventure and cycling on the island of Brač.
In addition to beautiful bike trails that pass through dense pine forests and olive groves, Sutivan is proud of its long promenade by the sea. It spreads from the centre to the east and west and reveals beautiful and well-kept beaches.
If the road takes you to Sutivan, be sure to ask about the legend of the cat in the bell tower. There used to be dispute because of that, and today it is a story that Sutivan proudly tells.
If you happen to be in Sutivan on August 15 and 16, don't be scared by the loud noise of the cannons. It is a tradition from the 17th century when cannon shots are fired on the Feast of the Assumption and Saint Rocco. That's how the locals thank Saint Rocco for defeating the plague.
Many celebrities also love Sutivan. Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson loved to spend his summer holidays in Sutivan when he was mayor of London.
