Brela, often referred as "the pearl of
Makarska Riviera", lies 15km north of Makarska.
And indeed, Brela has some of the most beautiful,
if not the most beautiful beaches in Croatia.
Village developed along the coast, so visitors
can walk by the beaches of Brela for almost 8
One naturist beach is located between the western
end of Brela's seaside promenade, where Jakirua
restaurant is situated, and neighboring village
of Pisak, in the Vrulja cove. Vrulja cove
is hardly accessible any longer along the coastal
track after a landslide (or builders spoil tipped)
about 300m north
of the Jakirusa restaurant. The steepness and
fragility of the landslip made descent/traverse
very hazardous, even for experienced walkers,
and cuts off access to the first two beaches.
Other way is by the path that goes trough the
woods few hundred meters above the beach. To get
there by car, on the main road towards Brela take
right turn -downwards at the Sampion restaurant.
Then drive in direction of Vrulja trough the village.
Always take right turns. After about 5 min drive
you'll find yourself on the dirtroad which is
about 500 meters long. At the end there is a small
parking area. After that you can take the path
mentioned above. You can choose a spot for yourself
on a 5km coastline visited mostly couples and
singles. It is a wild and fascinating cove with
the most incredible and dramatic nature and little
gravel beaches. To reach some of the beautiful
graveld beaches the best thing to do is to hire
a boat in Brela.
On the other hand, going South along the path
to Baska Voda and then on about 1km to
the end of the main beaches you reach a last beach
café and thereafter the beaches are mixed but
largely naturist for about 300m (before the next
resort beach). Access is easy along the cliff
path to the café.
In the village itself, nude sunbathing is (sometimes)
possible on quiet, from views protected cliffs
between many gravel beaches along the already
mentioned 8km long promenade. But this is not
advisable if you don't see anybody else in the
nude there (don't be the first one!).
