The small harbour of Pučišća is located on the NE coast of Brač island, 14 miles from the island’s capital of Supetar and 3 miles WNW of the bay of Povlja. The third largest of the Croatian islands after Cres and Krk, the island of Brač is a very popular holiday resort, which lies 10 miles SE of the city of Split, directly north of the island of Hvar and east of the smaller island of Šolta, from which it is separated by a narrow strait (the Split Gates). The town of Pučišća was formerly an important centre for stonemasonry, and there is still a stone quarry and stonemason’s school and workshop there, which are definitely worth visiting. Situated at the head of a deep inlet extending for nearly a mile inland, the port offers a safe shelter in all wind conditions, although strong NE winds (bura) can send in a swell.

Berths

The main yacht quay is in the W harbour, which consists of a small basin partially protected by two short piers. It can accommodate boats up to 15 metres. There are around 25 berths, equipped with laid moorings, water and electricity, at the S side of the basin. Some of the berths are occupied by local boats, usually leaving 8-10 berths available for visiting yachts. The water is mostly shallow alongside the quay, ranging from 1.2 to 2.3 metres. Depth in middle of the harbour ranges from 3.5 to 4.3 m.

It is possible to moor to the quay on the N side of the inlet or at the outer side of the short breakwater in the W harbour, although this is regularly used by tourist boats. There is also a small basin E of the harbour, however; berthing is not possible there due to very shallow water.

  • Number of berths 25; 8-10 for visiting yachts
  • Maximum length overall/LOA 15 metres
  • Depth 1.2 - 2.3 metres
  • Water Yes
  • Electricity Yes

The nearest fuel station is in the small town of Milna, on the west coast of the island.  

There is an airport on Brač Island (Brač Airport) near the town of Bol, which is used for commercial passenger flights, mainly charter traffic from Europe during the summer season.

The island of Brač is connected with the mainland city of Split by ferry, which departs from Supetar several times a day. The island is also connected to Makarska by ferry from Sumartin, and with Jelsa on Hvar Island from Bol. Pučišća is connected to Sumartin by local bus. Split is the nearest all-year round port of entry, and Hvar is the nearest seasonal port of entry.
