Milna, Brac Island


FOLLOW! Follow on Instagram Pinterest buttonTwitter button Facebook button

Milna is one of those typical Mediterranean fishing villages they don't make anymore. Lying on the west coast of Brac Island and 20km southwest of Supetar, the harbour of Milna is drop-dead gorgeous as it digs into the island like a spoon. To each side of the harbour stretch sand and pebble beaches including the cove of Vlaska.

What to See

Few new buildings mar Milna's urban landscape. The civic buildings and fishermen's houses on the coast are connected by footpaths to the surrounding farms, vineyards and olive groves.

As a matter of architectural interest, note the baroque facade of the parish church built in 1783. The altar paintings include an "Annunciation" that dates from the beginning of the 18th century.

As a matter of historical interest, note that the Russian fleet harboured its fleet in Milna during the Napoleonic wars. In 1806, there was a major naval battle in the waters of Milna between the Russians and the French.

Where to Stay in Milna

The star of Milna is the brand-new Olife Guesthouse, a boutique family hotel right on the seafront.

Getting to Milna

In the summer there are regular catamarans from Split to Milna that go on to Hvar and Dubrovnik. See the Split-Milna-Hvar-Korcula-Dubrovnik catamaran timetable or book here.

Otherwise, take one of the ferries to Supetar and then a bus or taxi to Milna. (see getting to Brac Island)
