Povlja, Island of Brac, Croatia
Many words have been said already about the beauty of the town Povlja and the island of Brac.
Besides this, the beauty of this „Paradise on earth“ has been described in many books, it has been presented in many art paintings, not to mention that it was captured in countless photos...
"God wanted to perfect his creation and used tears, stars and the breath of the sea to create the island Brac'' – these are the words of a writer, captured a long time by the beauty of this unique, natural and ecologic piece of land in the modern world.
Long beaches, rocky mountains rising out of the sea, hot summers, untouched nature and unique towns and monuments converted many earlier tourists into life-long fans of the island Brac and Povlja.
This probably is the origin of the saying that claims that one visits the island Brac and Povlja by accident only for the first time.
Each following visit is simply the result of the diversity, uniqueness of this island and the hospitality of all its inhabitants...
Only those, who visited this pearl in the Mediterranean will perceive our words as excessive.
But in order to remove any possible doubt into these words, you must come and visit Povlja and the island Brac on your own.
Povlja is located on the north-eastern side of island Brac, in one of the most beautiful bays of the island.
Povlja is a small town, with only three hundred population and the island Brac is surely one of the most beautiful ones on our coast, an untouched pearl of the Adriatic sea.
The majority of islanders in both Povlja and Brac in general are occupied with olives, wines and fishing.
Crystal clear and clean seawater, fresh air, countless bays and long promenades and walking paths along the sea make Povlja an ideal holiday resort for a relaxing vacation on island Brac.
In Povlja are several archaeological sites from ancient times and some valuable buildings from the Middle ages period, like remains of an early Christian basilica from the 05th century, the octagonal baptistery with a dome, parts of the Benedictine monastery and defense towers.
Povlja is surrounded by many bays with different types of beaches and the center of the town also offers safe berth in the little port.
Fishing and production of natural food-stuff represent a guarantee that you will also enjoy the offered food here, whereas the hospitality of your hosts will make your vacation in Povlja an unforgettable one.
For true lovers of nature, we recommend to come to Brac and Povlja in May and June, that is the time when sage and lavender are in full blossom and the entire island is covered by their unique scent.
September and October are also recommended periods of the year because the days are warm, the sea is pleasant to swim and the winter seems so far away.
