Brela is surrounded by the longest and loveliest coastline in Dalmatia. Six kilometres of pebble beaches curve around coves thickly forested with pine trees. A shady promenade winds around the coves. It located between the Biokovo mountain and the Adriatic Sea. It’s known as the pearl of Makarska riviera. The pearl of Adriatic or the pearl of Mediterranean is the name given to the city of Dubrovnik. In 1968 Brela was crowned as Champion of Adriatic for high achievements in tourist activity.


It maintains a relaxed atmosphere and remains a place for families rather than the young party crowd. The beach is pebble and the water crystal clear, which is due to the filtration provided by the sheer mountains lying as the backdrop to the village.

In 2003 American magazine Forbes put the main beach in Brela on the list of 10 world’s most beautiful beaches, where it’s ranked 6th in the world and 1st in Europe.

Beach Rat has also won Blue flag award which is only given to the beaches whit crystal sea and other facilities including bay watch girls. Near beach is also symbol of Brela.

One of the best diving positions in this part of Adriatic. Under Adriatic highway, at the foot of sheer cliffs, some of them about hundred meters high, there is a submarine spring of sweet water- in croatian language that is called vrulja.

It is the magic spot for your vacation in Croatia.
