Brela has very pretty beaches and enough of them for there to be enough space for everyone, even when it’s quite busy in peak season, it is still usually very pleasant. There is a path which follows the beach, running the length of Brela which is a very pretty and interesting walk and lovely for an after dinner wander, or pre-dinner if you are looking for somewhere to eat! Dotted along are beach bars and restaurants. At the Baska Voda end of Brela it is more quaint – there are little coves with cozy eateries and a handful of beach bars with beautiful, crystal clear, calm sea.
Then at the far end there are some modern hotels and Brela becomes more organised and there is more going on. You can hire windsurfers, pedalos, skidoos, have banana rides etc. There are lots of places to eat and stalls selling fresh food. Brela isn’t a big place at all and it’s very pretty pine forests going right down to the beaches.
If you keep walking along past the hotels, you reach one of Brela’s prettiest beaches with fabulous views of the mountains. At the end of the beach, you’ll find the iconic rock in the sea that you see so many stunning photos of.
You can park in one of the large hotels car parks for a fee, or in a paid car park. Or you can park in Baska Voda and walk along the beach and beach path to Brela.
