And now you belong to the land you were dreaming about. The wind blows up the sails, windsurfs are gliding and skis are competing with the white wakes of the ship. The golden pebbles are mixed with the jewels of the bay....Branches of centennial pines hide the hotels like velvet curtains, covering the cliffs like big parasols...Colours, flowers and smells are making tipical atmosphere of the Mediterranean.
There is amountain above Brela that the stars touch at night. It is a place where winds tell stories, where pine needles and flowers knit the veil around houses and restaurants and joy is competing with relaxation in the tranquillity of the nature. Brela is a jewel in untouched nature. Brela is a luxury of vegetation, sun and sea. Everything creates a special feeling and relation to Brela.
