I would like to know if there is the possibility to take a ferry from makarska to Brac taking our own car or the only solution is leaving from Split.
Thanks in advance!
Yes, there is. You take ferry in Makarska and you land in Sumartin on Brac island. All informations here: jadrolinija.hr/default.aspx?...
Hello: There is no car ferry at Makarska. Stopped there on the way to Dubrovnik last fall. Also checked in my Fodor's Guide. You can check schedules here: jadrolinija.hr/default.aspx?... (this site confirms no ferry form Makarska.
Sorry, other answer is correct. I was looking at Makarska - Supetar
Very strange: I simulated on the site the round trip Makarska-Sumartin and there wasn't problem: 6 ferries to go, 6 to back...
The ferry from Makarska takes 30 minutes to cross to Sumartin, it's a really good option if you're driving up from Dubrovnik - we'll be doing it ourselves in June - or staying somewhere south of Split. Just be sure to be in Makarska in plenty of time to put your car in the queue for the ferry you want to catch.
Thanks to everybody!
I needed this info because I will travel through Bosnia the first week of holiday leaving from Bergamo we will stop in Plitvice lakes, then Sarajevo, then Mostar, then Kravice waterfalls, Neretva.
Then I will spend one week in Brac so it would be better to take the ferry in Makarska, I will save 1 hour!!
PS: any suggestions for the accomodations in Brac? I would prefer Bol or Murvica.
I have checked...that line from Makarska to Supetar is working until end of May. In August it doesn't work...
Murvica's just a tiny hamlet, 5km from Bol, at the end of a partially unmade road - more a place to visit that to stay. I don't even know if there is any accommodation there.
Bol has heaps of accommodation, though if you want a week in August I'd start booking now -it's Brac's most popular holiday destination. Are you looking for an apartment, a room in a house or a hotel room? Try googling "Bol accomodation" - you'll find plenty to choose from. If you're looking for a house or an apartment, start with http://www.cvitanic.info/index.htm . We've stayed in their places twice already and are going back again this year. The website will show what availability there is. Prices are all very similar around the town.
It's 29 kilometres from Sumartin to Bol on a good road, though the last part has lots of bends as it comes down to the coast - drive carefully.
