Brela is a small tourist resort situated on Makarska Riviera. Famous for crystal clear sea, six kilometres of natural pebble beaches, the scent and the beauty of the thick pine tree forest which large part is a natural monument, and numerous pedestrian zones along the shore and all the way to the peaks of the mountain Biokovo.
Brela has two landmarks, Brela Stone and Punta Rata beach.
Brela Stone is a symbol of Brela and the most common motive from postcards of Brela and Croatia. The rock is covered in pines growing from stone in spite hard conditions - strong winds during winter and high temperatures in summer.
Punta Rata is a pebble beach which makes it suitable for families with children. The beach is maintained to high standards with deck chairs, beach umbrellas and showers. Forbes Magazine included Punta Rata Beach on its list of the world's 10 most beautiful beaches. It has been ranked sixth in the world and the most beautiful beach in Europe.
North of Brela is Vruja, landmark that offers an opportunity for magnificent landscape photos from the main magistrala road or if you reach it by boat, provides a perfect hideaway beach beneath high cliffs. The sea in Vruja is cooler as there are natural sweet water springs.
