Milna is located in a deep bay on the western coast of Brač, overlooking the "Splitska vrata" ("Split gate"). The Venetians gave it the name "Valle di mille navi" - the bay of thousand boats. The deep bay is a favorite boating anchorage (two marinas) of travelers along this part of the Mediterranean. In front of the bay there is the "Mrduja" islet known for the "Mrdujska" regatta.
In the town you will find the large baroque church of the Blessed Virgin Mary from 1783 and the Anglešćina castle of the Cerineo family.
Not far away is the old town of Ložišća and by the sea the town Bobovisca in the bay of the same name. While Milna is facing west, there are several beautiful southern coves (Osibova, Pasikova, Maslinova) on the other side, which are just 20 minutes away.
Although Milna is primarily a tourist destination, there is also a fish processing facility in Milna.
