Bol is quite simply the sun-worshipper’s dream. This town to the south of the Adriatic island of Brac is known for its gorgeous beaches, particularly the Zlatin Rat Beach. The sea on this town’s coast is unusually clear, allowing holidaymakers to see the floor of the sea at certain times of the day. In addition, plenty of water sports are hosted at here and most of the people occupying holiday apartments in Bol are windsurfers keen on profiting from the excellent conditions this locale provides. HomeAway offers tourists great holiday accommodation options to make their Bol holiday as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Apart from waterfront apartments that put the beach literally at their feet, visitors can book charming cottages that are also just metres from the sea. They can also find holiday villas in Bol with private swimming pools and a host of other useful facilities.
-Beaches: Sunbathing by the crystalline waters of the Adriatic drinking in the abundant sea breeze is one of Bol’s key attractions.

As they do so they will find refreshments right there on the beachside from a line of restaurants and bars.
-Water sports: Bol’s conditions are heavenly for windsurfers; the seasonal and local winds are just right, and the sunshine adequate.

-Monuments: Any visit to the island of Brac is incomplete without a trip to the Blaca Monastery which was built way back in the 16th century.

Inside the building has been converted into a museum with a number of interesting artefacts on display.

Bol showcases classic Mediterranean weather which means warm climate for most of the year and mild winters. The hot season begins in May as spring is clearing out and temperatures rising just above the 20°C mark. Temperatures continue to rise through June and into August when days with temperatures above 30°C are common. This time of the year is hot and dry, experiencing little to no rainfall. Bol’s wettest months are between October and December when monthly rainfall averages are just about 80mm.

The Bol/Brac Airport which serves the island is how many visitors access this resort. The traffic this facility handles mainly consists of chartered flights from different European cities arriving during summer. Visitors can also use Split Airport, Croatia’s third largest airport, which handles both chartered flights and seasonal commercial flights from all over Europe. From Split travellers can get to their Bol holiday rentals by ferry or taxi boat.
