Close at hand and well-connected to Split by ferry and catamaran services, the island of Brač can be visited in an easy day trip. With extensive tourist development along the coast and a stark, wild interior, the island is best known for its stunning beach. It is also a prime windsurfing spot. The top resort area is Bol. To get there, either catch an early morning Jadrolinija ferry from Split to Supetar (9 nautical miles) and then take a bus across the island to the south coast, or catch the midafternoon Jadrolinija catamaran from Split to Bol (24 nautical miles), which then continues to Jelsa on the island of Hvar.
