First time to Bol,Croatia. Need some advice please!!

Hi

We are thinking of visiting Bol in Croatia for the first time with two kids(age 7 and 2 y.o).

From 27 April to 4 May.

Arriving at Split airport at 17.30.

Departing Split at 18.05

So there are few things I wanted to find out and would be grateful for the help!!

What would the weather be like end of April /beginning of May??

As we were planning mainly to spend the days on the beach with kids.

Will the water be warm enough to swim??

Will it be sunny enough to spend whole day at the beach??

As we will be arriving at Split at 17.30,what's the best way to transfer to Bol??

I read up there's a direct ferry to Bol but once a day at 16.00 so we won't be able to catch it.

We are planning to stay at Adria Apartments.

Are there local food markets in Bol,where one can get good quality food? I'm a bit of a foodie.

And generally what are the people like themselves?

Many thanks in advance.

Beautiful time to hire a tennis trainer for your older kid and angle with both kids. Too early for swimming but right time for leisure.

Too early to swim unless there is a freak heatwave. Paddling will likely be OK but you need shoes as it is pebbly.

The food is good in the supermarkets but you don't get the price wars you get in the UK so it isn't particularly cheap. In the season there are a lot of food stalls in the central area with some nice products on them.

You will need to get the ferry from Split to Supetar and then a bus or a taxi over to Bol - as there are 4 of you a taxi would be as cheap.
