Today, there are twenty-odd settlements on the island. Pedal to Sutivan, a fishermen settlement on the northern coast of Brac. After Sutivan there is a climb and you pass through the picturesque village of Lozisca. Continue through the settlements in the interior, which are older, richer in cultural and historical monuments and much more interesting architecturally than the coastal ones.
Passing through Nerezica and Donji Humac, just before the last downhill to Supetar, we suggest a lunch break in a konoba which still makes traditional Mediterranean cuisine.

Stop in the town of Skrip, the oldest settlement on the island. After the visit to The Island Museum, pedal to Postira, fishermen village and Lovrecina, sandy beach with ruins of a large early Christian basilica assigned to the 5th century.

The highest peak of all Adriatic islands – Vidova Gora (778meters) , from where you will have a breathtaking view on the slopes of the south side of the island, the town of Bol and the famous beach Golden Cape (Zlatni rat) as well as on the islands of Central Dalmatia. With high visibility even the Italian coast may be seen.

Continue with biking to Gornji Humac, where you should try some of original islands specialties, before having a great downhill to Bol, the oldest coastal town on the island Brac. Bol didn’t take the usual position like other coastal towns in the amphitheatrically slopes of the protected bays, but it stands alone and separated on the southern, open part of the island, with the beaches connected like a necklace of pearls.
