Konzum supermarket is centrally located and the biggest most popular supermarket in Bol. Well, it's actually not that big but it has everything for self-catering. We bought joghurts etc. for our breakfast here and of course chocolates.

Sea Urchins live on the seabed of the Adriatic coastline in great abundance. In many places, especially isolated beaches, you will find them, which is a good reason to have some sort of foot wear. But be glad when you see sea-urchins, it means the water is absolutely clean because they live only in especially clean waters.
Wear old sneakers or plastic swim shoes, when you get there. Maybe it does not look the best, but it will help, to avoid pain if you step on them.
Another danger may be caused by the jellyfish, which may be found on the Dalmatian coasts in big swarms. Once you've been stung, little red welts will arise and they will itch three or four hours later. There are some "jellyfish sting" suntan lotions but bottom line is, they don not work. The best way to treat a jellyfish pinch is to put vinegar on there. If you don't have vinegar, urine will work in a pinch … But I haven't tried it.
The sharks are considered as the highest danger by the bathers, however in the Adriatic the little dog-fish lives mostly, which is max. 70 cm long, one of the world's most abundant species of shark. It lies in the big part of the day on the seabed, takes little cancers and fish. It is sold on the Dalmatian fish-markets, commonly used as the fish in "fish and chips". It is totally unharmful to the people.
Larger sharks very seldom stray into the Adriatic following ships; but they do not like the saltish water of the Adriatic.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Even in September it was already coolish and very windy when the sun was shining. So take your sunhat and sunglasses with you and put some sunlotion on.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There is a pharmacy in town.
Photo Equipment: We saw a couple of internet cafés and used one. I mention this in case you need to download something.
Miscellaneous: Make sure you visit the tourist office. There is one right by the harbour where you arrive by catamaran. This one doubles as library. Then there is another one by the bus station along the Riva and here we got some information brochures. There is a special map if you plan to ride a bicycle around the island.
