Over six kilometers of pebble beaches in Brela were in 2004 named by Forbes magazine as one of most beautiful in the world.
The pinewoods behind it have been protected as cultural heritage. Dalmatian architecture in remote villages under the mountain of Biokovo represents the additional advantage of the authentic offer of Brela tourism.
