After the last two posts about my sailing trip on the Adriatic, I thought I’d continue with the island vibe. Croatia has more than a thousand islands, a factor that certainly adds to the charm and beauty of the country. After exploring the islands of Vis and Šolta, it’s time to head to Brač!
Departure from Split
Being Brač one of the closest islands to Split, it’s fairly easy to reach it. I departed from the ferry port in Split and arrived in the city of Milna. The price of the ferry ticket was 40 kn each way (≈ 5.4 EUR / 6.4 USD).
Attention – there are actually 3 cities named Milna on the islands: one in Brač, one in Hvar and the other in Vis. Don’t get confused 😉
Arriving in Milna
Milna is located in a small bay on the western side of the island. When you arrive at the ferry port, you can already see the town just “down there”. Right away you’ll see a green forest all around, sailing boats, stone houses and clear blue water. All of these contrasting colors make Milna very inviting.
With just a 10 minute walk from where the ferry stops, you can be right in the center of Milna. It’s full of cafes and little shops. You’ll see tons of people enjoying their coffees and the beautiful view. And so I did… wow, how relaxing it is. These Croatians really do know how to enjoy themselves and appreciate the perks of their picturesque country.
Swimming in paradise
The crystal clear water makes it perfect to swim and dive. But it’s not just the water, it’s everything combined. If you go to Milna, do this: go swim in the warm sea water and look around – the scenery that’s surrounding you will amaze you and blow your mind. You’ll feel so connected with nature and with an extreme piece of mind.
Want to explore Brač?
If you want to explore Brač, you can visit Supetar. It’s the most populated town on the island and you can also reach it by ferry. Supetar has great beaches, restaurants, also churches and historic monuments.
Bol town is very famous, especially because of the Zlatni Rat beach. This beach has an unusual pointy shape that’s constantly changing due to the wind and tides. It’s considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic, attracting a lot of tourists every year.
Every time I visit a new island in Croatia, it only makes me want to visit more! All the ones I visited are beautiful and special in their own way. Milna was amazing: a little island town, full of charm and beautiful sceneries. Had tons of fun with friends and I loved swimming in the blue clear water.
As for next, I think the island of Mljet would be amazing to explore. Fingers crossed…
