Bol on Brač guide

Bol on Brač

Check our accommodation offer for Bol


Bol is a place situated on the south coast of Brač. It is known for its long tradition of tourism and one of the most beautiful natural beaches in the Adriatic – Zlatni rat. Brač airport is located only 10 km from Bol. Many low-cost airlines offer flights during summer and this is the best way to reach Bol, if you are not arriving by car.

The beach


Zlatni rat is really one of the most wonderful beaches in the Adriatic. What is interesting about it is that its shape changes continuously, so its tip will sometimes slope to one side, and sometimes to the other, depending on the sea currents and waves. The sea is beautiful and extremely clean, the offer on the beach is excellent, diverse and stylish! There are also any places where dogs are allowed.

Sightseeing and attractions


Tourism in Bol started in 1923. The first holiday colony was established that year in Bol in the primary school building. The first tourist facility, which was actually a private house arranged for guests, the “Vidošević Pension” was open in 1928. It also contained an inn and a restaurant. After the World War II, a hotel company was established and many hotels and hotel complexes were built. In the late 1990s, Bol was one of the most prestigious summer resorts for the so called jet-set.

One of the attractions you should visit is the Dragon’s Cave. This cave served as a dwelling place and a temple of Poljica Glagolitic monks who found refuge here on these uninhabited steep southern slopes of the island in the middle of the 15th ct. in order to start their monastic life in the cave. The cave consists of multiple galleries, each with a name, and the cave walls are decorated with reliefs from the times that witnessed the beginnings of Croatian literacy, spread by those same Glagolitic monks.

The Blaca desert settlement was built in the 16th ct. with the arrival of island monks to the area under a steep cliff where they built interconnected dwellings and produced and sold wine. The desert was shaped to form a complex of houses connected to each other; hermit’s houses, working buildings, a chapel and a school for children from the surrounding settlements.
