Travel Guide – Bol, Island Brac

Travel Guide – Bol, Island Brac

This post is my personal travel guide for the beautiful island Bol. In addition I wanted to share some pics of our last stay in Croatia. 🙂

Our crip

Our view

We stayed 6 nights at our wonderful airbnb apartment from Adria Tours which you can find here. That apartment offered a very beautiful view. The mentioned apartment was 10 min away from the catamaran pier. When we arrived the Adria Tours Team picked us up at the port and drove us to our apartment.

Logistics

We flew by plan and landed at the airport of Split. From there we had to take a bus to the Port of Split. At the port we took a catamaran that brought you twice a day to the island Brac, Bol. Due to our early flight back home on the last day, we took the catamaran at 6:24 which is very early for me.

Beach

We visited two beaches. Once, we were at the Kotlina Beach. By the way, you can read the post here. Most of the time we stayed at the stony beach bay next to the famous beach Zlatni rat.

For your information: Zlatni Rat is really famous for its interesting shape. 5 years ago we were there. But this time we didn’t visit it because we preferred the little beach bay much more.

Food

Pizzeria Topolino Bol Brac

Bol offers many spots for food and drinks. The most famous restaurants are: Pumparela and Topolino, both give you a beautiful view of the Bol pier. Also, where you can eat for bigger portion and for much less money is at Konoba Mendula. Their salad bar and service are awesome. The only downside is that the place is more hidden and is not at the port like the other restaurants. Furthermore there are many cafes where you can simply sit and catch a coffee with a beautiful view of the turquoise water 😉

Lastly before I forget – Croatia belongs to the EU you can pay in many places with euro instead of Kunas. But to be honest, I wouldn’t recommend changing due to high currency change fees.

On Thursday, we visited the beautiful Kotlina Beach.

You can find this picture perfect beach if you head east from the Bol harbor. Then you pass a restaurant called Ribarska which was closed on that day. We took another way and passed an old school that was sprayed with graffitis and walked the stairs down and saw the beautiful Kotlina Beach on the right.  If you look on the right side, you will see the other beach that is called Bijela Kuća beach. A cliff separates the Kotlina beach from the Bijela Kuca beach. Also, a stony path connects both beaches.

The Kotlina beach was our favorite because it wasn’t crowded like the other one. Furthermore, the beach offers some shade and is as I said picture perfect. Besides, we stayed there until the sun sets down

At the end, we hung around the ancient chapel of St John & Theodor, which is located to the beach. Thankfully an old German couple was so friendly to take photos of me and my fiancé.

Feel free to read my first post of Bol. 🙂

What can I say?

Two days ago, we arrived in Bol. Bol is located in the south of the isle Brac in Croatia. You can reach everything here on foot because it is a small place.

Some of you who know or follow me on Instagram, might know that the isle has a special place in my heart. The reason why this place is so magical to me, is that I have been here 5 years ago. It was the first couple-vacation of Jan and me. It’s really crazy how time flies by… Therefore, walking through Bol definitely wakes up old memories.

In that evening we went to Topolino and ate a gigantic Pizza which was very cheap.
Yesterday was a beach day for us. We took many pictures as always. Then next to the famous beach Zlatni Rat, we found a quiet place to soak up the sun.

After stuffing our bellies at Pumparella, we went for a walk and talked about the beautiful memories.

About JeyToday I’m sharing with you some memories of beautiful Mallorca.

Do you know that feeling of constantly feeling to be somewhere else? Yes? That is called wanderlust. I have been feeling like that since Amsterdam…

I’m really grateful that I have been to some places this year. I know for some people it might not be huge but for me it’s much. And we’re planning our next holiday for September/October. Right now, we don’t know where we will go but I think we’ll stay in Europe or go to Asia.

All this Blabla brought me to the idea to share the pictures that we took in Mallorca last year in May. Why am I sharing it now? Yeah because back then I didn’t have a blog. Also, it’s never too late share beautiful memories…

Ok, I hope you enjoy the pictures!

I can’t believe that it’s been a week since we traveled to Amsterdam. The three days went by too fast!

On our last day, we did a little food spotting. And made a quick stop at Stubbe Haring. At the place, we ate a Haring sandwich that was filled with onions and pickles – so delicious!

Then we stayed around Amsterdam Centraal. After that, we stopped by at Manneken Pis. We bought French Fries. The fries are the best in Amsterdam. We waited 15 minutes for the fries but it was really worth it.

At the end, we bought cheese for the family because the people in the Netherlands are known for their good cheese.

See you in the next post!

Ich kann es nicht glauben, dass eine Woche schon vergangen ist. Die drei Tage in Amsterdam gingen viel zu schnell rum!

Am letzten Tag haben wir uns ein wenig nach Essensmöglichkeiten umgeschaut. Den ersten Stopp haben wir bei Stubbe Haring gemacht. Dort gab es für uns Hering mit Brötchen. Sehr, sehr lecker und empfehlenswert!

Danach haben wir uns die ganze Zeit in Amsterdam Centraal aufgehalten. Dann sind wir zum Manneken Pis gegangen, wo wir die beste Pommes in Amsterdam gegessen haben. Wir haben dort bestimmt 15 min Schange gestanden, aber es hat sich gelohnt.  

Zum Schluss haben wir Käse für die Familie gekauft, da die Holländer für Ihren guten Käse bekannt sind.

Bis zum nächsten Post!
