Sutivan, Croatia - holiday information

Sutivan, Brac, Croatia – visitor information

Sutivan lies on the north-western part of the island and is about 7 km away from Supetar. Named after the old Christian Basilica sanctus Johannes, while the locals and other islanders call it Stivan. During the construction of Diocletian's Palace in Split, one of the royal dignitaries built his palace in the settlement just under the Kavanjinov palace, so we can talk about a 1700 year long history. The population is mostly engaged in agriculture - particularly olive oil and wine, and tourism. Apart from beautiful beaches, bicycle and pedestrian paths are also neatly kept, and in July the annual festival of extreme sports "Vanka regule" takes place - see:

Accommodation you can find in comfortable apartments and rooms, and the tourist offer is enriched with the Sutivan Nature Park – a resort with a zoo and a variety of opportunities for sport and recreation. For a good gastronomic experience we recommend tavern Porat, restaurant Dora and tavern Bracera.
