Barbat is the first
settlement which you will encounter upon arrival at the ferry terminal located
in rocky and inhospitable looking Mišnjak. Numerous holiday homes are strung out
along the coastline. Here the modern and traditional blend together:
notwithstanding lucrative tourist related incomes, many families have not
deserted the old way of life, continuing to cultivate agricultural land and
vineyards, honey production and fishing. Many of these products, considered to
be amongst the best on the island, are served to guests.
Proximity to the sea, numerous bays and inlets for
swimming, Dolin Island which is located directly opposite the settlement thereby
protecting Barbat channel from cold winds and storms, are surely just some of
the reasons why many guests and sailors chose to return year after year.
Connoisseurs of historic artefacts will enjoy mount Saint Domjan, ruins of an
antique Christian church and ancient Greek fortress.
