ACI Milna, Brac
ACI Milna is located within the town of Milna at the western end of Otok Brac close to the heart of the town and adjacent to the fishing quays. Some reports in pilots and other guides suggest the proximity to the fishing boat repair yards can make this a noisy place to stay (see below).
The marina encompasses the whole of the southern arm of the bay around which Milna sits. Moorings are on pootoons on the west side of the bay (to the right as you enter) and against the harbour wall on the east and south side of the bay (to the left as you enter). There appears to be no independently managed harbour mooring at all as all are under the management of the ACI marina. Its location is right in the centre of this small town and provides excellent all round shelter and immediate access to all of the town’s services including cafe’s restaurants, supermarkets and other shops. There is also a fuel berth.
For a harbour with no direct ferry connections Milna is a bustling little place with plenty to keep the visitor busy for an overnight visit. There is a good choice of restaurants including one within the marina itself, the Zuti macak which was well attended during our visit and offered an interesting range of food from pasta through fish and meat to local specialities as well as a good breakfast menu ((095) 819 4099)
Facilities are clean, modern and well maintained, and while the marina staff are surly and loud as they direct you to a berth (as in most ACI marinas), they are helpful and they get the job done. During our visit in late June on a Sunday, we arrived at around 1800 and still found space available, later in the season you could however imagine spaces being harder to find later in the day.
Reports of noise from the fishing pier were (at least on a Sunday night / Monday morning) over exaggerated - this frequently re quoted fact has kept us from visiting ACI Milna for 5 years - which is a shame, because this is a nice facility and well worth a stop either on your way out or on your way back to Split, or as you pass the western end of Brac heading north or south.
ACI Milna offers fuel, 144 wet berths and 16 shore berths along with a 10 ton crane. The adjacent boat yard specializes in the repair of wooden vessels up to 120 tons.
There is also a second marina in Milna (the Vlaska) located near the entrance to the inlet but further from the town.
