Brela are a quaint little coastal town not far from Makarska. The whole place seems like one continous beach and promenade. All the beaches are natural pebble beaches. The next little town in line called Baska voda is within walking distance and they seem to be joined together. An interesting natural site exists here which is a single large rock that portrudes from the sea with a single tree growing on it, it is even used as a symbol of the town, and is a great place for taking photos (especially at sunset). Being such a nice and friendy envieroment it is best suited for families athough there is always something for everyone and the nightlife is nice. The accomodation in town is plentiful and very well developed, which is reflected in the prices. One thing that may prove very troublesome is parking. There always seems to be a shortage of it and this can get a bit frustrating. The larger town of Makarska is near by and the whole Makarska riviera, which Brela are a part of, is very beautiful. Apart from the main beaches in towns and around them there are many secluded spots if you are willing to explore for a bit. If you are staying in Brela more than one day, we recommend you that you take Three Caves Tour, a full day tour to Hvar, Bisevo and Vis island and take a photo of a magic Blue cave.
