On the southern side of the island lies cove Brna with a hamlet of the same name, just 4km southwest of the settlement Smokvica, and 20km away from Vela Luka. Mali Zaglav peninsula divides Brna in two parts, and the eastern part has its own hamlet and a little harbour. If you follow the southern island coast you will reach smaller settlements Prizba and Grscica.This part of the coast is followed by several isles: Vrhovnjak, Crklica, Stupa, Otočac and Sridnjak. This area is known for its vineyards and quality wine Rukatac and Posip.
The settlement of Brna originates from the 19th century when it was a harbour for wine export from Smokvica to other Mediterranean and Adriatic harbours. In recent years tourism has been developing in this area and because of the untouched nature it presents an oasis for a peaceful getaway from daily routine. The beach Zal, located in the centre of Brna cove, is suitable for families since the beach has entertaining content for children. Cove Istruga, located in the vicinity, is known for its therapeutic mud and a sport-recreational centre (2 big tennis courts, bowling alley, ping pong tables and a beach volley court). Apart from recreational contents in the sport centre, you can also try sailing, fishing, scuba diving, bicycling and grape and olive picking. The settlement has its own store, post office and several restaurants with an excellent offer of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, olive oil and exquisite wine. You can find accommodation in modern equipped private houses and apartments.
