Vela Lokva

Hidden in the Sutivan hinterland, Vela Lokva is a site of unique tranquillity and atmosphere. It is a water harvesting site which, according to legend, never runs dry. Throughout the ages it has been enclosed by a dividing wall to increase the capacity of accumulated water. The pool was of high importance back when Brač didn’t have a water supply connection to the mainland (before 1970) and all the wells in the settlement would run dry. A line of women would then form with heavy water buckets on their heads, walking two kilometres form Vela Lokva in the blazing summer sun
