Most people know Bol for the picture-perfect triangle of beach known as Zlatni Rat, and the charming Old Town makes a relaxed base for exploring the rest of Brač Island. Many of the stone buildings bear plaques explaining their historical importance, so you can easily pass a few hours getting to know Croatia's coastal past. If you're more interested in views, sip a cocktail on the waterfront promenade or hire a scooter to zip between wineries and monasteries across the mountainous interior.
Check out a Bol hostel with a swimming pool and olive groves or stay in a stone house typical of Croatia's islands. There are hostels in Bol with spacious gardens full of comfy chairs, and others can arrange boat trips and barbecues. You'll have access to communal kitchens in many Bol hostels here, and you can often find free Wi-Fi if you've things to keep up with back home. Whether you stay in a dorm or a private room, you'll find most hostels have air con – a real blessing in summer.
The old town of Bol sits on the waterfront and leads down to the seafront promenade and harbour. Along winding cobbled lanes you'll find restaurants and boutiques tucked into historic homes spilling over with pink flowers. To reach the beaches, walk west down the promenade through the woodlands and sculpture park, passing several rocky coves before arriving at Zlatni Rat. You can find more secluded beaches around the island's eastern corner in the village of Povlja (a 30-minute drive).
Head to Bol's beaches to try your hand at kitesurfing or take to a sea kayak. Zlatni Rat is particularly popular for wind surfing, and there are plenty of surf schools close by. Pop over to Skrip, a white stone village that's the oldest settlement on the island, or walk an hour to explore cliff cave hermitages known as the Dragon's Cave. At sunset, complete the 2-hour hike (or mountain bike) up Vidova Gora Mountain for views over the Adriatic Sea and distant Italian coast.
To reach the town, take the ferry from Split (1 hour) or Dubrovnik (4 hours) and arrive at Bol Port. If you're going to check out other towns on Brač Island like Supetar or Pučišća, local buses will get you there in an hour or 35 minutes, respectively. Zlatni Rat beach is a 25-minute stroll from the centre of Bol, and in summer a taxi boat from the harbour can be a delightful alternative to walking.
