Despite its quiet reputation, there's actually a lot to do in Brac. You may have Zlatni Rat at the top of your agenda, but keep in mind that this unique beach actually looks better from above than when you're simply walking down its slim, stoney formation.
That's why we'd suggest heading up Vidova Gora, which is the highest point on the island, looking out over signature postcard scenes. Not steady on your foot? There's the option to drive up too.
Something that can only be accessed by foot, however, is Pustinja Blaca, which is found down a steep 2.5km walk. Also known as Blaca Monastery, this storied structure was built in the 16th century and continues to stand in the middle of nowhere.
That's perhaps not surprising when you learn that Brac is famous for its stonemasonry, with the island's stone used around the world - including in the construction of the USA's White House. To discover more, visit the Stonemason School in Pucisca.
If you like your cultural attractions with a side of something delicious, hit up the Olive Oil Museum in Skrip. Not only will you learn all about how the favoured Croatian ingredient is made, but you'll also get to try some with morning tea.
Brac's cuisine stays fairly true to what is served widely across Croatia. However, the emphasis on seafood is much stronger due to the wealth of fresh produce available straight from the Adriatic Sea - you've got to try the catch of the day whenever it's offered. Typically these dishes are priced by weight, so be careful before ordering with your eyes!
If you prefer meat, you won't be disappointed either. Lamb prevails as the most popular type across the island, with a baked variety known as ispod peke (translating to "under the lid", which is how it's cooked) being most notable. Vitalac sausages, made from lamb's offal, are also commonplace.
Vegetarians won't be hard up on options though - many goat's and sheep's cheeses are made here, plus a selection of seasonal fruits and vegetables. After all, you can't beat a crisp salad on a warm summer's day.
