Getting around Island Brač

If you really want to discover all the beauties of Island Brač, you have to be mobile.

It is the largest island in Dalmatia and the third largest in the Adriatic with 396 square kilometres.

It will take you more than 1-hour drive to get from the easternmost to the westernmost point and more than half an hour to get from the northernmost to the southernmost point.

Getting on Brač is easy, with several ferry lines you can get on the island with your own vehicle and that is the best way to explore Brač.

Let's take a look at all the possibilities for getting around the Island.

Your own vehicle

The best and the most comfortable way to explore Island Brač is by driving your own vehicle. Brač is ideal for long car rides. Local roads are good and well-signed, but we definitely recommend having extra navigation so you won’t get lost. 

Roads between settlements meander along the coast, over hills and through olive groves, vineyards and forests. In the interior of the island, be extra careful because you will often come across sheep crossing the road. If you come by motorbike or cycle, prepare for a unique experience.

Gas stations are located in 4 main tourist places: Supetar, Bol, Sumartin and Milna. EV charging stations are located in Sutivan, Postira and Bol.
