The main habitation of Brac and gateway to the rest of island, Supetar is a bustling traditional town. With plenty of alleys to explore, galleries to view, wine cellars to visit and restaurants to sample it’s a fairly typical Croatian coastal town.

There are no great architectural sites – nobody seems to have been that bothered about invading the place, but it’s a friendly spot. There are beaches just to the west of town but as the hub of the local transport network it’s also a good base from which to explore the island further.

Particularly worth a visit (if you’re not already planning to sail there) is Bol on the south coast and it’s famous Zlatni Rat beach. It’s only about 10 miles by bus from Supetar. Supetar is also an easy place to drop off or pick up crew, with up to 20 ferries a day to Split in summer.

There are plenty of places for provisions ashore and several banks and ATM’s.
