Reviewed By Dale P - Harrogate, England, United Kingdom

Lovely stretch of beach where we would stroll to walk off our evening dinner.Just to note it does get quite chilly of an evening in early October
I was ok but my wife needed a shawl.The area was pretty quiet as we believe it closes in another few days for the winter.I can imagine it’s buzzing in summer and plan to return very soon

Brela Beach

Reviewed By CGin23 - New Jersey

Brela is a beautiful town with amazing Beaches. All of the Beaches have clean and clear water. We are here in August and some of the Beaches are busy, however of you walk a bit you can find some that are secluded.

Biokovo Mountain

Reviewed By skimeld - London, United Kingdom

23km of single-track precipice-edged road make for a hairy drive; and is definitelty not for the faint-hearted. Follow the blue Jure cycle signs to the James Bond-esque radio tower at the 1762m top. Best sunrise views mean entering park at c.530am (end August) but well worth it. Bring a sweatshirt as chilly at that time of the morning. Take your time to explore the walks too however, as the park is full of meadows of beautiful-smelling pines, blue thistles and alpine flowers and grasses.

We were pleasantly surprised as to how these Beaches are kept. They are all community kept and they have special people in the community to do so, they are such a proud people, we loved it here. Walking along the walkway, with it beautiful stone and it lovely beach, where else would you want to be?
It truly is a stunning place, find yourself a bar to sit in and watch the world go by, lovely.

Butterfly Diving

Reviewed By nza999 - Western Finland, Finland

Day trip with this group was not nice experience. Staff was not friendly att all..no friefing about diving and when i ask help with equipments they were, wery rude. Staff dont take any contact, dont go there alone, take own buddy with you. It was long, alone day. Only helping people was other divers. I cancel my other day trip. I didin't feel safe and staff was so big dissopointment. I hope place owner do something about his staff. You lose paying customer, because they dont want to come back. I wait so much diving in Croatia..beautiful, clear water.

This is a proper town; there are hotels but they don't dominate. local people are doing local things. We were here nn October and I expect it could be different and very busy in high season, so choose your time to come.

Kayak Brela

Leader in sea kayaking and snorkelling in Brela : - organised tours twice per day from June until October every year, including snorkelling - kayak rental

Reviewed By rmjose2001 - Barcelona, Spain

My husband and I really enjoyed the Sunset Tour offered by Celine and Mate at Kayak Brela!
The kayaking, snorkeling and swimming times during the excursion are properly coordinated and very entertaining.
When we arrived to the beach from the fantastic tour Mate was waiting for us with some delicious appetizers made by her mother, amazing wine and a chocolate cake to blow the candles!
Without a doubt, Kayak Brela is much more than a kayak tour, it is a unique experience!
We highly recommend the tour to everyone and look forward to repeating this experience in the near future!
THANK YOU CELINE & MATE FOR EVERYTHING!
