An Adriatic paradise. Bol fascinates with blue water, beautiful beaches, wonderful nature, and the virgin beauty of the island of Brac.

The oldest settlement in Croatia, Bol sits in perfect solitude on the southern coast of the Croatian island of Brac. This scenic village is found at the foot of Mt. Vidova, the highest point on any Adriatic island. The mountain, with its cliffs and lookout points, is perfect for hiking. But there are many other ways to stay active as you explore the region. You could go swimming, sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, or biking. There are several must-see beaches here, and perhaps the most impressive is the Golden Horn (Zlatni Rat in Croatian), just west of Bol. A thin strip of sand extending nearly half a kilometer into the sea, it's ideal for sunbathing and swimming. Above all, there's a feeling of peace and openness here. You can enjoy a relaxing, meditative stay among natural beauty, or keep as active as you like. Anywhere you go on Brac is picturesque.

What we love about Bol


Senior Trip Planner

You have probably already heard about magnificent Zlatni Rat Beach at Bol, and trust me, it is all you imagine it to be. Clear sea, a thin strip of sand, pine woods ideal for lazing in the shade, bars, and water sports all over. But it's only a small portion of this place. If you manage to move from the beach (and I'll admit, it may be quite hard), you'll discover a charming town, a hill perfect for hiking and breathtaking views, and hidden taverns for the most delicious meal.


Local Teams Specialist & Senior Adriatic Destination Expert

Picturesque Bol is one of the Adriatic's most picture-perfect destinations. Located on the island of Brač, a short distance from Split, I find it a perfect getaway (even as a day trip). Situated beneath the highest peak of the Adriatic's islands (from where you can enjoy some of the most impressive views), you should allow yourself enough time to enjoy its truly unique Golden Horn beach.
