Bol island Brač
Bol is in many ways an exceptional town. It is oldest coastal town on the island. Bol is the only town located on the open southern side of the island, as opposed to all other coastal towns, which are located in enclosed bays. Bol is surrounded by numerous beaches. Some are located in the very centre of the town, and along the coast to the east and west. The most famous beach is Zlatni rat, which truly delights with its beauty and always changing endemic peak shape stretched to the sea. The beach is vertically extended into the sea in the direction of the island of Hvar. The tip changes direction influenced by the winds and waves. Daily wind “Maestral” helps with the summer heat, and is also very favourable for windsurfing, which makes Bol one of the main destinations for surfers from Croatia and all over the world.
The mountain crown with Vidova Gora, the highest peak of all the islands with 780 m, stands proudly above Bol, as a natural protecting shield from the northern storms.
