Milna on the island of Brač is a natural harbour with numerous bays and pebble beaches in the surrounding area; it's also an easy first stop from one of the bases near Split on your way into the Dalmatian Islands.
The bay of Milna is the best and most sheltered harbour on the island, a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed by generations of seafarers; you will be following in the footsteps of many crews before you.
Milna really is a picturesque bay; it's certainly a place that you will want to make sure that your camera is fully charged. The old village curves up and around the harbour, with a maze of narrow lanes and stone houses leading up to an old eighteenth century church. It's nice to have a wonder up to the old village, as you get a true sense for how it was; plus it helps to work up an appetite!
For many crews, a perfect day in Milna would be aiming to arrive just after lunch; this would be to take advantage of the freshly caught fish and then take an uphill stroll into the old village.
When the evening draws in, this is when you want to be on board your yacht to enjoy some sundowners, we would suggest a G&T; or maybe that's just us. Then with the sun setting, either head to one of the close port side restaurants or head into the old village to get stuck into some roast lamb from one of the little off the beaten track restaurants.
Also, it's worth noting, that crews who are looking for some creature comforts, Milna is home to an ACI (Adriatic Club International) marina with excellent facilities; the showers are just fantastic.
