One of the reasons why Brela is such a popular destination and why people are returning is beautiful nature and 6 kilometres of pebble beaches, covered with pine trees. Tourism on Makarska Riviera is growing from year to year and that is why there is more and more apartments and hotels every year. Brela is still avoiding mass tourism and it is ideal for families with children and people who want to get away from the city rush.
In 2015. Brela was awarded with White Flag for the tourist destination with the most beautiful and the cleanest environment. This was just a confirmation the citizens of Brela take care about the nature and want to preserve intact wildlife, special for this region.
Even though Brela has a lot of beautiful beaches such as beach Jakiruša, beach Berulia or beach Soline, i would like to point out three of them that will leave you breathless.
First one is beach Vrulja, small secluded beach, surrounded with high cliffs so the easiest way to approach it is with the boat. One part of the Vrulja beach is intended for nudist, and the reason is the privacy that they have. Other part is ideal for families with children and romantic couples. The specialty of this beach is explained with the name Vrulja (croatian for waterspring), beacuse the waterspring is very close to the beach. That means that the sea is a lot cooler around the spring and the water is crystal clear. if you want to relax, cool yourself from the summer heat, then this is the beach for you.
Second beach i want to mention is the most famous beach on Makarska Riviera, called Punta Rata. it is a winner of Blue Flag, which symbolizes quality of the sea and surrounding area. Next to the beach are tennis courts or possibility to rent kayaks. if you want to have a meal,quick snack or just go for a coffee, everything is within 100 m from the beach. Just by the beach is also famous symbol of Brela: “The Brela Rock”. Whole area is covered with pine trees and just few houses that are blending into intact nature. Beach is made of pebbles, ideal for families with kids. I believe it is enough to say that american magazine Forbes named Punta Rata beach as one of top 10 beaches in the world and as the best beach in Europe.
Third one is beach Podraće, named by the European Parliament in 2017. as the first choice to check out in Europe. It is a very small beach, surrounded with pine trees and rocks which gives you privacy and peacefulness. Since the beach is still not that famous, it is possible to find a perfect spot on it, where you will feel the best and where your vacation will be a dream vacations.
