Daily trips from Brela are a great idea these days because autumn is the fifth season! It may seem to you that this statement is exaggerated. If you have been lucky enough to spend at least one autumn weekend in Brela, then you know what it is all about.
Autumn days are an excellent combination of warm weather, quiet beaches, and pleasant evenings by the sea. That is why it is not surprising that every year more and more guests decide on dates in September and October. Mild autumn weather provides the best opportunity to take advantage of the day. Incorporate enough time for rest, sightseeing, and quiet lunches and dinners by the sea. The crowds on the beach, promenade, and roads should be significantly less than in July and August.
Holidays in the autumn months because of all this are increasingly becoming an attractive idea for many. These are also ideal opportunities to escape on the weekend if you have already used your vacation, thus extending the summer even less.
Those who travel in these months know all the advantages well, and those who do not often have prejudices that this is not the best time “because there is nothing to do.” That is why we bring you a list of 5 top choices for autumn activities in Brela. These are day trips that are easily accessible, very close to Brela, and still, leave enough space to use part of the day for swimming and sunbathing.
Additionally, these are activities that both young and old can enjoy. By compiling these suggestions, we also met the needs of those eager for adventure and those who are more inclined to learn about history and culture. There is also a particular suggestion for those who want to experience a whole new helicopter flight experience.
