Brela is a charming little town on Croatia's Adriatic coast roughly midway between Split and Makarska. With the backdrop of the Biokovo mountains and lapped by the crystal clear azure waters of the Adriatic this largely unspoilt stretch of coast is quite stunning.
There are a number of separate coves that make up the 6km stretch of Brela Beach. All are fringed with an abundance of pine trees and formed of the same coarse, but lovely, sand. Just off the main beach of Punta Rata is the Kamen Brela. A tiny island with a few tenacious pine trees clinging to it, this iconic rock is considered a symbol of the town.
We aren't the first to note the attractions of Brela beach. The U.S. magazine Forbes rated the beach here as not only the finest in Europe, but the 6th most beautiful on the planet.
