2. Brela rock
The most recognisable symbol of this area is the Brela rock. What this is, is a rock on the western side of Punta Rata, which has become a must-see destination for all who are nearby.
Brela stone is a symbol of Brela - you can take a photo of it, swim around it, or observe it up close from a rented kayak
Brela rock isn’t your usual lifeless rock, Mediterranean trees grow from it, as if from nothing at all, creating a favourite motif for photos.
Just like the rest of Dalmatia, Brela is known for its authentic and free Mediterranean food. Fish that was caught that morning on the grill (Dalmatians call grills gradele), octopus under the bell (a special clay pot with an iron lid that is placed under wooden embers), homemade olive oil, excellent wine… You’ll enjoy it.
