Bol Brač, Croatia – visitor information

Bol is the biggest settlement on the south side of the island Brač. It is situated at the foot of the island's largest mountain Vidova Gora, surrounded by luxuriant nature and incredible sandy beaches that can be found all along the south side of the shore. By far the most famous gravely beach is Zlatni rat. With its entire length, of approximately 600 meters, it enters the Brač - Hvar Channel playing with the currents and the winds and changing shape in accordance to the wind direction. This natural phenomenon, has attracted and still attracts crowds of tourists since the beginning of organized tourism in Croatia, and has transformed Bol into a premier tourist destination. In addition to a great hotel offer, private accommodation in Bol is of the highest quality with more than 3000 beds. Restaurant offer is also large and diverse, with special emphasis on local specialties. Apart from the excellent restaurant offer there are taverns, pizzerias, nightclubs, cocktail bars and various other facilities for children and teens in Bol. Surfing added a lot of popularity points to this town, and other water sports which are based on wind power are also available here. Every summer enthusiasts from around the world gather and share their knowledge and experience in a casual environment. There are courses for surfing, kiting, scuba diving, which are all extremely popular among children and young people. The surroundings are covered with gravely beaches. The most popular beach is in Murvica, located at the foot of ethno-ecological Murvica village, 4 kilometers from Bol. You can enjoy not only the beach, but also the nearby beach bars and restaurants that serve Dalmatian specialties.

We also recommend a one day excursion to the island of Hvar organized daily from the town centre. By coming to Bol you'll definitely treat yourself and your loved ones with a memorable holiday.
