Located on the Makarska Riviera in southern Dalmatia, Brela is becoming an increasingly popular destination thanks to its 6 km of beautiful pebbly beaches, good choice of hotels and flats, excellent Mediterranean climate and lively nightlife.

At the foot of Mount Biokovo, the Makarska Riviera is considered one of the most beautiful coastlines in Dalmatia, and the Brela part is certainly the most attractive.

The town is also an ideal base for visiting some of Dalmatia’s most famous resorts, including the beautiful cities of Split and Dubrovnik, and is therefore perfect for those who want a holiday that combines lazy days on the beach with cultural and historical itineraries.

If you have a little more time available for an excursion, you can go as far as Bosnia and Herzegovina to visit the cities of Medugorje and Mostar.

The town of Brela

The town of Brela comprises two main settlements: Brela Gornja is located behind the Biokovo mountain, within the nature park, while Donja Brela consists of a few villages located on both sides of the main road. There are no famous monuments or museums to visit: the attractions of Brela are the natural wonders of the area.

From Brela, you can walk to the town of Makarska, following an easy 14 km walk in the shade of pine trees.

The Punta Rata beach

The most beautiful beach around Brela (and beyond!) is undoubtedly Punta Rata, immortalised on countless postcards and photos. It is an enchanting beach of rounded white pebbles, with pine trees that provide shelter from the scorching sun and perfume the air with their characteristic pungent odour.

The hallmark of Punta Rata is the beautiful rock with the trees, standing proudly from a turquoise-blue sea: it is perfect as a subject for breathtaking photos and as a backdrop for romantic sunsets.

Numerous services are available, including beach umbrella and deckchair hire, toilets, showers, bars and restaurants, and sports areas. The beach is easily accessible from the centre of Brela: it is only 300 metres away!

Biokovo Nature Park

Behind Brela rises the Biokovo Mountain, an imposing mountain system that represents one of the natural jewels of central Dalmatia.

The Biokovo Nature Park encompasses an area of 19,550 hectares, criss-crossed by numerous walking and cycling trails that will delight active holidaymakers; the highest peak in the complex reaches 1762 metres.

If you venture along one of these trails, keep your eyes peeled for evidence of the past, such as the tracks of the herdsmen who once rode up here. At the end of your hike, refresh yourself with a snack at one of the park’s refreshment points.

How to get to Brela

Brela can be easily reached by car because it is located along the coastal road that passes through Split.

If you want to travel by public transport, the time is considerably longer. It is better to arrive in Split or Zagreb and then continue by local transport.
