Bol is a pretty town with gorgeous beaches and pine scented roads. Simply be aware that the apartments people are renting are not vacation rental appropriate, and you won't find a decent meal at any restaurant no matter how much you pay. A local chef told me the restaurants all serve frozen fish, no matter what they claim on their... More

I have visited amlost all of the Croatian islands in the past ten years but the one I keep comming back to is Brac. If you look for peace and quiet look for Bobovisca na moru, if on the other hand you are looking for something more bustling go to Bol. Wonderful beaches, several really good restaurants, the cleanest, most... More

From Split to Bol $12CAD Ferry ride (45 min ) Jadrolinija $10CAD Bus ride (45min)* don't take a cab it cost $10 per person. We liked this beach because it was clean with great waves and can get very deep. No need for swimming shoes even though it's not sandy.

During our 3day stay at the Dalmation coast, we enjoyed a daily excursion to the island of Brac. Wonderfull beaches!! We swam in a perfect small beach near Splitska; crystal clear water, pine trees coming down to the coast. We also visited (and swam in) the famous Zlatny Rat; it is a unique place, no doubt, thus attracting millions of... More

My Grandmother's family came from this island so I decided to visit it and explore. I would have liked to explore some of the other villages but I spent most of my time exploring Postira where my family is from. The island itself is beautiful and scenic. I visited in December and it was pretty warm. I had to take... More

Liked athmosfare. Sea water was clear to swim and people ok. In some days couple showers but generally quite warm. Also cheaper than in Greece. Mostly people from continentall around. Good with children and not so much for young adults to party. Probably in ten years this place will be ruineid with overselling door mens and shops but luckily not... More

The town of Supetar is the port of landing for the ferry from Split to Brac.it is a beautiful island with wonderful views and lovely stone homes. there is plenty to do ranging from beaches to great restaurants, historic sites and some shopping. look for traditional coral jewelry or filigree silver designs. Plan to spend a few days and relax!

Instead of Hvar, my friend and I decided to go to Brac instead, and we do not regret. Brac may be not as popular, but it certainly worth going if you like sunshine, seashore and beach. It has taxi and coach service from Supetar (the town where the pier for ferries from Split is located) to Bol (south of Brac)... More

We stayed a total of five nights in Bol, and included a visit to Supetar. Brac island is a very picturesque island with a quiet way of life. From what I understand, its neighbor Hvar is more busy, as it is a party destination. The reason behind choosing to have our vacation on Brac was because were intrigued by the... More

We can to Bol on the island if brac in July. The weather is great being in the high 20's with a cool wind which means you're never too hot. There are many places to eat sea food and grilled lamb. Typically with Croatia there are no sand beaches.
