Brac Island’s busiest and arguably best time to visit is during the summer months, particularly from March to October. This is the time of year when temperatures are in the high 20s on a fairly consistent basis and the climate is much more steady. It is when the island is at its liveliest and most beautiful. Brac Island isn’t as popular in the winter months when temperatures drop towards the low-teens and single digits.
One of the main sights to see on Brac Island is Pustinja Blaca. This former monastery is now a museum run by two brothers with plenty of rich history to tell of the island. If you are into hiking, you should have a go at tackling Vidova Gora. This is the highest mountain across all of the Adriatic Islands and all the way up you will experience great views of Bol and the islands of Hvar and Vis. Other activities on the island include visiting the many pebble beaches, private coves and trying your hand at some of the water sports on offer including kitesurfing and windsurfing.
