The island of Brach is the longest and highest island in central Dalmatia. Despite its proximity to Split, Brach is less well-known to tourists than the glittering islands of Hvar and Korchula. Brach is a relatively dry island; you will not find lush vegetation, say Korchula or Hvar, but there are several beautiful places along the rocky shores and excellent diving from the bay of Luchica.

The highest peak on the island of Brach is Vidova Gora at 778m, which is the highest peak on the Adriatic islands. The interior of Brach is mostly small valleys and fields, while on the higher terrain, north of Vidova gora, you will find an endemic species of pine.

Don't miss the olive oil on Brach! Olives are a rare variety called flea beetle and have more than half a million trees. Olive growing dates back to the Venetian years. As early as 1655, the Venetian senate insisted that the island be covered with olive trees and imposed fines on anyone who could damage the trees.


Today, Brach is best known for its beautiful white stone for construction, which has been exploited since ancient Rome. Diocletian's Palace in Split was built of Brach stone and is still used in the construction of buildings up to Europe and North America.

A very beautiful island with picturesque bays and an authentic city. All houses are stone, with red roofs, not high, very harmonious with nature. It was a pleasure for us to spend our time there
