Brela Beach

Brela's beaches are among the most beautiful in Europe. Lined with pine trees and with mountains in the distance, each cove is a jewel. The western spur of Biokovo mountain nearly meets the sea here which gives the coastline a rugged allure. The original, old settlement of Gornja Brela was built quite a way from the sea and over the littoral ridge of Biokovo mountain. You can see Biokovo in the distance. The settlement was mentioned by Constantine Porphyrogenitus in the 10th century as the town of the Neretva pagans: Oppidum Berulia. And Brela is an easy day trip from Split.
