Brač is a well-known island that has the highest elevation of all the Croatian islands - the peak Vidova Gora can be visited in numerous ways (car, bike, hike) and offers unforgettable views. The whole island boasts a history of stonemasonry, in fact the stone from here was also used to partially build the Washington White House. Like any Croatian island, there are plenty of vineyards, local food, as well as locally made olive oil made from olives grown. On our new route we want to take our Sunsail guests to experience Croatia as it once was - visit old fortresses built by the ancient stone masons, anchor in turquoise waters, taste traditional dishes with homemade olive oil, and spend quiet evenings surrounded by pine trees fragrance. Brač route will enable just that - to enjoy hot Croatian summer and still find calm and peaceful places for relaxation, combined with flotilla activities during the week.
