Bol has become a popular destination for windsurfers and kitesurfers. The sea channel between the islands of Brac and Hvar and the wind that blows there provide good conditions for kitesurfing. The kitebeach in Bol is covered with pebbles and relatively small, but you can launch from the school there for a small daily fee. Lot of tourists in summer.
