Brač is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. It is the largest island in central Dalmatia and is best known for the white-pebble beach Zlatni Rat and a popular spot for water-sporting activites including wind-surfing. Brač is also most famous for its white-stone used to build Diocletian’s Palace in Split and believed to have been used to build part of the White House in Washington. The island of Brač is easily reached by ferry from Split in just 50 minutes. The whole island can be crossed on foot (for serious walkers) along the old paths once frequented by shepherd's.
