The American magazine “Islands” has recently ranked the Croatian island of Brač among the world’s ten most desirable islands to live on. The specialized magazine is printed in a circulation of millions and read all over the world.
According to the magazine, apart from Brač, other islands that have found themselves the list of the world’s most desirable islands are: the Florida Big Pine Key, Crete in Greece, Waiheke in New Zealand, Curacao in the Dutch Antilles, Maui in Hawaii, Nevis in the Caribbean, Lomgkawi in Malaysia, Grand Cayman in the Caribbean Sea and Palau in the Pacific. All of them have received the title of dream islands for a pleasurable and high-quality life.
Brač is desirable to live on account of its clean air and sea. It is one of the most beautiful and largest islands in Dalmatia, with numerous olive-trees and amazing clean sandy and stone beaches, writes “Islands”.
Its connectedness to the mainland is excellent, and the rich culinary offering consists of fresh fish, clams, home made lamb and cheese. Also excellent is the red wine sort Plavac. The people are relaxed, and their life does not only consist of work, but, as opposed to the Americans, they can enjoy drinking coffee in cafes by the sea, claim the journalists of the American magazine, concluding that life on Brač is medium-paced, just as it should be. They have noticed that all towns near the sea have a church in the centre of the town, right next to the sea, but that each is different in its own way and interesting.
