LOCAL INFO

Bratus is located along the coastline of the Makarska Riviera, a 60km stretch of pebbly beaches and crystal clear waters, all embraced by the towering mountains of Biokovo.

Historically, this area is known for the production of wine and olive oil as well as various types of fishing and although technology and therefore techniques have since changed, these activities still go on to this day. It is here that you can sample the many wonderful varieties of local produce on offer, either from the local markets or the numerous restaurants in the area.

The islands of Brac, Hvar, Mljet and Vis are easily accessible from the local harbours where ferries regularly operate through the year and the towns of Split and Dubrovnik make a pleasurable daytrip by car or local transport. If you fancy venturing inland, this opens up a whole new dimension of destinations to explore, such as the National Park of Krka, the river Cetina and the beautiful peninsula of Peljesac.
