Hvar island (Brač) is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. It's best known for the white-pebble beach Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), a favored windsurfing site outside the resort town of Bol. Supetar, the island's main town, offers a horseshoe-shaped beach and ferries to and from Split. Seaside Pučišća features traditional architecture and an active quarry for the island's famous white limestone.
Brač (local Chakavian: Broč; Latin: Bretia, Brattia; Italian: Brazza) is an island in the Adriatic Sea within Croatia, with an area of 396 square kilometres (153 sq mi), making it the largest island in Dalmatia, and the third largest in the Adriatic. It is separated from the mainland by the Brač Channel, which is 5 to 13 km (3 to 8 mi) wide. The island's tallest peak, Vidova gora, or Mount St. Vid, stands at 780 m, making it the highest island point of the Adriatic islands. The island has a population of over 14,000, living in numerous settlements, ranging from the main town Supetar, with more than 3,300 inhabitants, to Murvica, where less than two dozen people live. Brač Airport (IATA: BWK, ICAO: LDSB) is the largest airport of all islands surrounding Split.
The economy of Brač is based mostly on tourism, but fishing and agriculture (especially wine and olives) are very important too, as is its precious white stone which was used in building Diocletian's Palace in Split and the Canadian National Vimy Memorial. Very widespread is also the claim that it was used in the White House in Washington, D.C. Historically, Brač was famous for goats; even Pliny comments that from the island of Brattia (the Latin name for the island) comes excellent cheese, wine and olive oil. The island is administratively divided into one city and seven municipalities, including the twenty-two settlements. The island is part of the Split-Dalmatia County, but is not represented there as a whole, only through its city and municipalities. Brač Airport (Croatian: Zračna luka Brač; IATA: BWK, ICAO: LDSB) is an airport on the Croatian island of Brač, close to the town of Bol, after which it is sometimes also named informally. It is one of three island airports in the country (the other two being Krk – Rijeka Airport and Lošinj – Lošinj Airport) used for commercial passenger flights, mainly charter traffic from Europe during the summer season.
