There is no chance you can ever get bored in Bol. Whatever your holiday expectations, Bol has plenty to offer and many forms of entertainment. Whether you like to shop, relax, be pampered, get active, go to concerts or exhibitions, party or have a good time with your children, Bol has something for you by day or by night.
Unwind, de-stress and enjoy being pampered at the Spa and Wellness Centres at Hotel Elaphusa or Hotel Bretanide.
Traditional therapeutic massages, exotic treatments & spa baths, thalassotherapy, aromatherapy, and a range of other beauty treatments are offered alongside the use of saunas, a steam bath, solariums, Jacuzzi and swimming pools.
The best items to take back home are locally-produced products such as Brač olive oil, wine, rakija (grappa) and cheese. These can be found at the local fruit and vegetable market or for more elegantly-packaged products at the shops named Uje and Gulozarija. Bol’s Wine Cellar also sells its own brand of wines, Stina, which come in uniquely labeled bottles but you can also look out for the signs on private properties advertising the sale of such products.
Longer-lasting souvenirs are those made from Brač's iconic white stone such as bowls, clocks, ornaments, magnets and jewellery or you could pick up a painting of a local landscape or seascape at the Botteri Gallery (owned by two local artists, Josip Botteri Dini and Ana Marija Botteri Peruzović) or from the art gallery at Bol's Cultural Centre 'Dom Kulture'.
There are numerous shops and stalls beach accessories, quality summer fashion and souvenirs and there are also a few surf shops dotted around that sell well-known surf brands.
Whether it is a coffee, a light snack or a taste of Dalmatian cuisine, comfortable cafe bars, snack bars, restaurants, traditional konoba and pizzerias abound, most at the water's edge, some offering spectacular views over the harbour and a few providing live music that might just become your holiday's soundtrack. A handful are tucked away in idyllic locations, far from the busy waterfront and definitely worth the walk!
Playing on the beach, swimming and splashing in the sea will no doubt be the highlight of your children’s holiday but there are plenty of extra activities to entertain them on and off the beaches: amusement parks, supervised play areas and playgrounds, water sports and rides for older children as well as other sports such as cycling and tennis. And here we also recommend a few family outings destinations.
Bol’s Cultural Centre organizes a summer-long programme of cultural events called Bolsko Lito, which includes regular art exhibitions, classical and jazz concerts, theatre performances (usually in Croatian), film festivals and a range of other festive events, including Bol’s celebration of its patron saint, ‘Our Lady of the Snow’, and a summer carnival.
A special event for tourists and locals alike is organized every Thursday when Bol’s main square becomes a huge open-air kitchen; food stalls offer local dishes including sardines, tuna steaks, seafood risottos and other similar delicacies. Grab a bite to eat and a glass of local wine or Croatian beer and join the locals dancing to the live music until late.
As darkness falls, Bol's café bars take on different characteristics; some maintain their calm daytime atmosphere and with the addition of candles turn into romantic oases, others bring in the DJs, pump up the music and attract a younger crowd.
However, Bol’s party scene starts even before you leave the beach. Auro Cocktail Bar on Zlatni Rat beach throws a series of after-beach parties with live DJs & musicians, dancers and special drinks promotions.
Varadero Cocktail Bar and YOLO in the centre of Bol, are the places to be seen as the night draws in: the evening starts off leisurely and relaxed, but as the clock strikes eleven, the DJs pump up the music and start to spin the latest summer tracks. To continue the party until dawn, you can take a stroll along the promenade to Ella nightclub, open until 5am.
Hiring a car, a scooter or bike is a great way of exploring Bol's sites and its beaches as well as other Brač villages, beaches and sites of interest..
