There is also a horticultural park with Mediterranean aromatic herbs and protected turtles. Pebbly beaches spread all along the coast, hidden by pine trees and tamarisks, while in the very centre one can see a gothic villa and famous arcs, St. Anthony's church and a baroque palace with noble armor. Walking along the coast you will arrive to a marvelous marble promenade shadowed by pine trees, leading you to the most beautiful beach on the Adriatic – Zlatni rat, the capital of all surfers in Croatia.
Even in summer, northern winds blow on Zlatni rat almost all day long making the sea surface always a bit restless and attracting, consequently, lovers of excitement and water sports. Long ago, despite the restless sea, Bol was a significant port and a proprietor of even 15 ships! Today, there are only excursion boats with tourists coming from nearby islands or mainland for a one-day excursion. Just 5 km away there is Murvica, a small coastal village above which there is Zmajeva špilja (Dragon's cave), once a residing place of Croatian catholic priests who escaped the invasion of Turcs by coming to Brac and building there a magnificent monastery complex Blaca.
