There is a super beach located on Bol that you have to see and is a cool place to visit. The beach has two sides to it so if the wind is blowing on one side the other side is nearly always sheltered. The beach is stoney like most beachs in Croatia but it is still a beautiful place to... More

If in Bol then of course you must visit this beach. There's a very pleasant walkway from town or an easy cycle ride to get there. It's not particularly child friendly given the deep drop away from the shore and swim shoes are advised. There were plenty of stalls selling shoes at reasonable prices. I personally preferred beaches at the... More

this beach is not a sandy beach what most of people think when looking pictures and ads, it is consisted of rock which from the air does look like sand. anyway during summer has way too much people, if you are a wind surfer then this might be a place for you

You can't properly go to Bol without visiting Zlatni Rat Beach. Like almost all Croatian beaches, it's pebble, and the tip tends to curve with the current of the Adriatic. It tends to get a bit crowded, so be prepared to hunt a bit for a spot! I will say that it was a bit smaller than I expected, but... More

Went there in October so no surprise most food stalls were closed for the season. This made for a very relaxed atmosphere though. You need reef shoes which I prefer than having sand everywhere since it's quite windy. Because of its shape there is probably always a side of the beach that is less windy which is very convenient. Good... More

An amazing beach with beautiful views. Very cold, but otherwise absolutely perfect! Worth the walk to the end of the beach!

Nice pebble beach just outside Bol. The road in is a bit hairy but in good condition and plenty of barriers. You can get boats in from Bol. We took the wrong turn and ended up by the nudist part!

This is a must do whilst in Bol - pristine beach with plenty of sun lounges to relax on. There are also a number of small shops/bars that you can buy food/drinks from.

...but the water was too cold for us to enjoy in September. The beach is great but not sure it beat the beach near ribarska kucica

Get here early to avoid the crowds. Lots going on and great bars on the beach. You can take a mini 'submarine' tour and also try your luck on the 'It's a Knockout' style inflatables, out on the sea. Slightly disappointed that we didn't see any real sand (fine shingle), and the sea was COLD, but the turquoise coloured water... More
