My first Croatian island experience was to Hvar, which was nice, but my last visit was to Brac and it was great.

I enjoy going to the island not for beach and sun (I grew up in southern California and grew tired of this lifestyle) - but to get away from it all, relax, have a chance to have a few homecooked meals and to have absolutely no agenda.

A word on Zlatni Rat

A lot of tourists come here for Zlatni Rat. This ubiquitous beach is on every postcard, tourist brochure, t-shirt, etc... And it looks very cool, like a tongue - from the air! Those of us without private helicopters get only the view from the ground, which is, less than spectacular. Not that it's bad, but as they say, don't believe the hype.

When you get in to town

The catamaran from Split will drop you off in Bol. The tourist info center is almost as you step off the pier. Quiet little marina (outside of tourist season) with one internet cafe, some good cafes on the boardwalk and a few not-so-ultra-tacky souvenir shops to boot. Since I had a kitchen, I cooked all my meals and didn't try any restaurants.
