Bol is a town on the south of the island of Bračmarker in theSplit-Dalmatia countymarker of Croatiamarker, population 1.661 (2005).

Bol (its name derive from the latin word "vallum") is renowned for its most popular beach, the Zlatni ratmarker ("Golden cape"). It is a promontory composed mostly of pebble rock that visibly shifts with the tidal movement, a unique sight. The sea at Zlatni rat and, indeed, the entire area is quite crystalline (and somewhat colder than usual), due to the strong current of the strait it is situated in. On a still day the stones on the sea-floor that are 30 feet down look only an arm's length away, and there are spectacular pine trees that grow down the middle of Zlatni rat (there is a beach on either side of the horn). Bol itself is a very popular tourist destination and has a number of harbourside bars and restaurants.

The Dominican church in Bol contains a number of paintings by Tripo Kokolja.
