While you are in the area you can visit Blaca Monastery a 16th century World Heritage site; just be prepared for the climb it takes to get there.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Brač
The island enjoys a pleasant climate all year round, with typical highs during the summer months of June to August reaching approximately 85° Fahrenheit, although on occasion it has risen as high as 105° Fahrenheit. Brač's terrain means that it is ideal for hikers, hill walkers, and sightseers. If you do fancy exploring the terrain, it is recommended for you to carry a Knueppelsk (a sort of stick), as there are quite a lot of snakes roaming the land. Depending on which part of the island you visit you will likely hear a different dialect, however many of the locals are multilingual, especially if they work in tourist areas. The island is quite famous throughout Croatia for its Brač cheese, and you can purchase it from one of the many farmers' markets.
