The Best Beaches
Zlatni Rat (Brac Island): Visit this beach just so you can say you did. This is the famous strip that appears in all the Croatia ads, usually in an aerial view. From above, Zlatni Rat resembles a green finger rimmed with sand and tipped with a curling tendril extending into the sapphire sea. From ground level, it is a sun-blasted, pebbled landscape covered with a huge international crowd soaking up the rays and the local culture.

A Taste of Croatia...savoring the food, people and traditions of Croatia's Adriatic coast...is both a user-friendly cookbook and an intriguing travel memoir dedicated to the land that the New York Times recently dubbed the "New Riviera.
" Packed with straight-forward recipes, photos, food facts and anecdotes, the author has created a publication that goes beyond the bounds of what makes a great cookbook...she delivers the spirit of the culture, the country and the cuisine and then ties it all together with a collection of recipes that will make you want to run to your kitchen and start cooking. Today, throughout America, we are hearing more and more about the benefits of eating fresh, seasonal, local foods that are grown and produced using sustainable methods. However, for today's cooks, it can be difficult to know exactly how to incorporate these concepts into our busy lives without it being too complicated, time consuming or expensive. Toss in a dash of ethnicity and even the most competent home cook can become discouraged. Fear not: A Taste of Croatia provides a straightforward and easy way to celebrate a culture whose dishes can be created anywhere fresh ingredients can be found...all the while capturing you with an inspiring story that will allow you to set out on your own adventure...without leaving your favorite chair. A Taste of Croatia is based on the author and her husband's three-year odyssey sailing the Adriatic coast and living aboard their 50-foot sailboat. It is the story of the lands they explored, the people they met, the markets they visited and the foods they enjoyed. Presented as a well organized, easy-to-use cookbook, most of the recipes have been savored by generations of Croatians and all of the recipes have been adapted for use in American kitchens.
It is the author's hope to provide each reader with his or her own enriching, delicious, inspiring and thought-provoking "taste of Croatia."
Supetar (island of Brac)
Supetar is situated on the north side of the island of Brač, one of
the most attractive Middle Dalmatian islands. The ferry line
connects it with the town of Split. Supetar was built in the
cove of St Peter by which it obtained its name.
It is considered today as one of the main tourist centres. You
can enjoy its cultural monuments, various sports and recreation programs.
Beaches: rocky, pebble, some beaches have sandy areas in the water.
Taverna Riva, Frane Radica 5, Bol, Brac
I was a bit skeptical of this restaurant at first - concerned that it might
be a bit of a tourist haunt - I was proved wrong. Almost every dish was
delicious - the octopus salad, the mussels, the fish (dorado, scorpino),
octopus under the bell. The only dish that didn't impress - the marinara (?),
marinated anchovies - which were okay, nothing exceptional. The wines
recommended were perfect. For our second dinner we had 'octopus under
the bell'. The octopus was so tender and cut like fillet - the sauce was
wonderfully rich - the potatoes, carrots and baby eggplants were beautifully
carmalized. Another very interestng dish was a special type of mussel that
had a a growth (cork) that you had to remove to open it - the mussels arrive
to the table closed - the meat was pale white. The setting along the water's
edge was sublime. They also serve lunch. Highly recommended.

Sutivan (island of Brac)
Sutivan lies 7 km west of the Supetar ferry port that is connected to Split by daily ferry lines. Sutivan goes back to the 15th
century and, apart from sacral monuments, has several interesting Renaissance houses and Baroque summer residences.
There are mostly pebble beaches in Sutivan, while there is a
sandy beach in the Livka bay nearby. Evenings in Sutivan are great for pleasant walks in the park with its palm and pine
trees. You can try homegrown food and wines of Brac in numerous restaurants and konobas (local restaurants).
We recommend: foundations of an early Christian church
/ Sv. Ivan Renaissance church / 18th century Baroque bell tower / Marjanovic family fortress from 1777 / Renaissance
house of the Natali-Bozicevic family / Baroque summer residence of the poet Kavanjin / Ilic Baroque park / Dafinis
house - museum collection of furniture and artwork from the beginning of the 19th century
How to get there: 7 km west of Supetar on the island's main road.
