Bol on Brac

Bol catamaran port

Bol is a town on the south side of the island of Brač, famous for one of the most popular beaches in Croatia – Zlatni rat. Bol is connected to the mainland (Split) and the island of Hvar (Jelsa) by regular catamaran lines.

The pier where catamarans depart from is located next to the main promenade by the sea, in the town center.
