Brna - Korcula

Brna - bay on Korcula Island

Brna is a large bay situated on the southern shores of Korcula Island, close to the Smokvica village as well as Prizba and Priscapac.

Location of Brna on Island KorculaBrna used to be a non urbanized bay with only couple of small houses used by local fishermen, where people from Smokvica would go to overnight before long fishing days. Brna developed in the 19th century when, during Austro Hungarian Empire, when pier was built to be used as a port for the village of Smokvica for export of local wine.

Panorama of Brna

Since early 1970's Brna become place where people from Smokvica started to build their summer houses close to the sea. That's how Brna slowly become a village of it's own, with rows of detached houses that has flats and apartments for rental to tourists and visitors. Around the same time, Hotel Feral was also built, so Brna became a "proper" tourist place too.

Brna BayAs Brna is a very deep bay, it is popular with sailors as their overnight anchorage spot, as it is well sheltered from dangerous winds. At the shallow part of the bay there is a small pebble beach called "Zal", next to which are couple of large and old pine trees with huge branches that provide a comfortable shade on the hot summer's day.

Brna has two main jetties: the larger one called "Veli Most" and smaller one called "Mali Most" (meaning Large and Small Jetty). These jetties are used for mooring of larger vessels while smaller boats moor all around the bay.

There are few cafes and restaurants in Brna that serve fresh food and local wine. Brna is in near vicinity of Istruga Bay, where popular sandy beach with healing properties is located.
