BARBAT HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL CHARACTERISTICS
The first place to greet you after incredibly denuded Misnjak is Barbat. The Barbat people have spontaneously mixed the modern with the traditional, and in private pensions you'll be able to relish meals featuring fish and other sea-food.
Many of the people in the village who are in the catering haven't turned their backs on their land, raising sheep, growing crops and grapes and keeping bees. Many of these organic products find their way onto the tables of the guests.
And in addition, the proximity of the sea, the many gravel beaches and the safety of the Barbat Channel enclosed by the elongated Dolin Island, attract many visitors, especially wind-surfers and sailors.
Since it is attractive to sailors too, you'll also find a ship's chandlers and a modern well-equipped boatyard for the repair of motor-boats with a crane of up to 30 tons capacity and a dry-dock for boats of up to 120 tons.
Lovers of the antique will be delighted by the remains of the Early Christian church and the Greek fort on the St. Damian hill.
