Brač transport and travel advice, and getting there and around
By Justin McDonnell
Brač is one of the few Adriatic islands to have its own airport (021 559 711, www.airport-brac.hr), 15km north-east of Bol. To get to Supetar, ask at the airport’s information desk to book a taxi, which should cost around 300kn. For buses, see below.
Supetar is the island’s main port. Jadrolinija (021 631 357, www.jadrolinija.hr) runs 14 ferries a day travelling from the harbour in Split (28kn, 50mins) in summer (nine a day in winter). To take a car over the water should cost approximately 150kn including the foot-passenger fare/s.
From Supetar buses (021 631 122) run to most other destinations on Brač – in summer there are five a day to Bol or Milna. The bus station is located just east of the ferry port.
Excursion boats link Bol with Jelsa on Hvar (100kn, 30mins).
Several ferries a day (30kn, 30mins) shuttle between Makarska on the mainland and Sumartin on the far east cape of Brač. Five buses a day run from Sumartin to Supetar – sadly neither linking with the afternoon ferry.
