Composed from a white pebble this beach, tourist seem to love it. I think it is more of prestige so you can say you were in Bol, cause there are many great places to take a swim or lay in the sun –  not only on island Brac, but all over Adriatic coast.

If you are looking for clear water, nice weather, places to go out and to eat great local food, be sure to find right place for you. Some island towns can be quite and serene, some are great for sailors that search safe harbour, others are well know by summer parties (like Hvar on island Hvar)

The tallest peak of island Brac is Vidova gora (Mt. St. Vid) stands on 778 m and it is the highest island point in the Adriatic.
