Welcome to Bol

The town's major attraction is Zlatni Rat, the seductive pebbly beach that ‘leaks’ into the Adriatic and draws crowds of swimmers and windsurfers in summer. A long coastal promenade, lined with pine trees and gardens, connects the beach with the old town. Bol is a buzzing place in summer – one of Croatia’s favourites – and perennially packed with tourists.
