Milna, Brac, Croatia
The pretty village of Milna serenely looks out across its bay on the extreme West tip of Brac island, around 20km from the capital and ferry port of Supetar. Milna is a quintessential Mediterranean fishing village, unspoilt by time and development, and offers a taste of the real Croatian islands of times past.
Timeless, understated buildings line the harbourside, which is a charming spot for a stroll and to enjoy some local Croatian cuisine. Milna is a quiet and inviting place to discover, with a choice of restaurants, cafes & shops, but all low-key, authentic and not visited by mass tourism.
Spend the morning wandering the back streets, pause for a coffee, pick up some delicious local bread from a local bakery or perhaps fresh-caught seafood at the harbour.….heaven! Stroll back along the cobbles, pass the beautiful & imposing parish church, and just soak in the feel of this special place. A slow pace of life means it won’t be long before total relaxation takes over and you may feel as if you have stepped back in time.
Stretching away to either side of this working marina are gorgeous pebble and sand beaches, including the cove at Vlaska. Around the island are a plethora of beaches to be explored from wild and deserted to those offering more adventure with watersports of all kinds. It is easy to get around from Milna and visit other places of interest, towns & villages, such as Bol, Supetar and Zlatni Rat.
Boat trips to neighbouring islands or to Split are on offer from Milna harbour and make for fantastic day trips.
