Postira is a small fishing village on the northern side of Brac. The name was derived from the Latin word Pastura - pasture.
The center itself has a typical Dalmatian look of farming and fishery houses along a typical stone paved street.
Recently, Postira has developed into a tourist resort with beautiful villas and hotels.
The most beautiful beaches are Lovrečina and Konopjikova: Lovrečina is a sandy cove with a source of water in the vicinity of which probably a Villa Rustika from Roman times existed, remains of an ancient dock were found in the sea, too.
