Hiden monastery abounded by monks but open to a public, easily reachable on foot from the car park some 20 minutes walk on hill trail. Bring some water to cool during the walk. In the monastery, you can also buy some refreshments.

All day long walking through wild and astonishing nature. At the end of path opens Pustinja Blaca. What to say, it is a monument of hard working man in everlasting fight for survival. Everything you see yo will remember for a long period of time.

You can't walk from Bol. You need to take the boat trip which leaves Bol at 9am and returns around 2.30/3.00pm.
