Mediterranean island weather - Perfect for beach and hiking vacations
The climate on the islands of Dalmatia and generally in Croatia is Mediterranean with warm, not too hot summers and mild winters. The average temperature in the summer months is a pleasant 25 °C with a sea temperature of 22 °C - perfect for a beach vacation in Milna
. In winter, the mercury rarely drops into single digits during the day, but it rains more frequently. June and September are the best months for a hiking vacation on Brač.
Fresh fish, lamb, and delicious wine
Dalmatia is an island world in the Adriatic Sea. It's no surprise that fish and seafood are at the top of the menus. In the restaurants and rustic Konobas, you'll find squid risotto, octopus salt, or grilled scampi. Many restaurant owners on the coast still fish themselves - with a small boat and sustainably. The day's catch is calculated by kilo price: sea bass (brancin) and gilt-head bream (lavrata) are the favorites in the net and on the plate. You shouldn't miss a dish cooked in the Peka: the ingredients - octopus or lamb with vegetables, wine, onions, and garlic - are gently cooked in a clay pot with a bell-like lid for several hours in the embers. Be sure to order in advance! The standard side dish of the region is salt potatoes with chard and garlic. A palatable, strong red wine comes from the Pelješac
peninsula. With white wines, you can't go wrong with a Malvasia, which goes excellently with fish dishes and salads mentioned above.
The most beautiful beach in Dalmatia and much more
Your vacation accommodation or house or private apartment in Milna is just a stone's throw from the famous Golden Horn (Croatian Zlatni Rat) in the vicinity of the small village of Bol. The golden pebble beach extends like a sickle several hundred meters into the Adriatic Sea. Currents and wind direction change the appearance and direction of the horn's tip. Within walking distance in Milna, you will find four pebble beaches - Lucice, Maslinova, Pasikova, and Osibova. The water is crystal clear, and the typical Aleppo pines on the surrounding hills provide shade in the midday sun. From the marina in Milna, you can take day charter tours with sailing boats to discover the island world from the sea. If you travel by car, you can also take your dog or pet with you and explore the region and surrounding villages with your family between bays and pebble beaches. A trip to Hvar, Sumartin, Supetar, or Sutivan is also worth it.
A unique cultural landscape
In the surroundings of your accommodation, your vacation apartment at an affordable price or your vacation house in Milna on Brač, there is a lot to discover. The late 18th-century parish church of the Annunciation with its baroque facade is the most magnificent church in Milna. Inside, there is an altarpiece by the Baroque painter Sebastian Ricci, depicting the Annunciation. The ruins of a small Gothic chapel can be found near the aforementioned Osibova beach. In Milna, as everywhere here, you will find buildings, architectural elements, and sculptures from the island's quarries. Since the Renaissance, builders and artists have been using the stones. In the north of Brač near Postira, the remains of an early Christian three-aisled basilica dating back to the 6th century can be admired. It bears witness to the settlement of the island for thousands of years. Countless other early Christian, medieval, and Renaissance chapels and churches are scattered all over the island. Those who bring good topographic maps can reach over 20 pre-millennium churches via secluded hiking trails. Simply rent a vacation accommodation or apartment or house with internet, garden view, modern amenities, balcony, terrace, and an affordable price and start your vacation full of possibilities and tailored to your personal wishes in Croatia on Brač!
