Arriving in Bol we made our way down a long tree-lined pathway towards Bol Beach. There are small cafes at the start of the path. We stopped at one for our typical lunch of Pizza and beer. You can catch a trolly train here that goes directly to Bol Beach, about 2 miles down the path. We decided to walk to explore the other sites before relaxing on the sand. The pathway is on a ridge above the water, and provides fantastic views of the crystal blue Adriatic below. There are beaches, cafes and dive shops all along the beach as it widens out to form Bol Beach. Thick woods cover the land side of the path, except for a few resorts and small Inn’s that line the pathway. A couple of the resorts are huge, indicating Bol is catching on quickly as a prime vacation spot.
The beach at Bol is considered Croatia’s most spectacular beach. It’s renowned for the golden sandbar (Zlatni Rat), which wraps around a wooded forest forming triangle styled point that’s just out into the Adriatic. We found a spot and set up camp. Just beyond the swimming area yachts and boats lined side by side. The beach was crowded, but in September most of the Euro-tourists were back and work and school, so it was not too bad. The water was warm and enjoyable. After two days of hiking around Trogir and Split it was good to chill out to one last day of sun and fun.
