Brist is a small tourist place in Split-Dalmatia County. It is located at the foot of the impressive mountain Biokovo, on the southernmost part of the Makarska Riviera in the municipality of Gradac. The place of Brist is named after the elm tree (Croatian word - brijest), and it is first mentioned in 1571. However, the settlement is much older, as evidenced by numerous archeological finds, and was located inland on the slopes of Biokovo, as well as all the other old settlements of the Makarska Riviera. The present place of Brist was formed in the late 19th century when the population moved along the coast. The entire length of the place stretches a beautiful pebble beach ideal for families with children, offering an unforgettable view of the island of Brač and Hvar. Along the beach, there is a promenade that connects neighboring places of Podaca and Gradac and is ideal for pleasant walks at sunset. The interesting thing about Brist is that there are more registered beds in private accommodation than residents (only about 400 inhabita...
...nts). Otherwise, accommodation can only be found in apartments, rooms and holiday homes within private family accommodation. The place is ideal for all those who want to enjoy peace and quiet and relax on the beautiful pebble beaches. For lovers of nature and active holidays, we recommend going to the Biokovo Nature Park (hiking, walking, paragliding...), and those looking for a good night's fun, we recommend going to nearby town of Makarska. We wish you a pleasant stay in this beautiful little Dalmatian place! Welcome to Brist!
