A day of fun – and lots of photographs in the biggest island in the Adriatic Sea. Zlatni Rat Beach is possibly the most well-known beach in Croatia. With its distinct pointed shape, the water surrounding it even seems to glisten in the sunlight. While crowded, you can still have a good time whether it be playing water sports or just basking in the sun.
Zlatni Rat Beach is considered to be one of the crown jewels of Bol, a town on the island of Brac, and is possibly the most famous beach in Croatia. With its characteristic pointed shape, it glitters when hit by the golden sunlight as you approach it, hence its name, Zlatni Rat, which means “Golden Horn.” We got there by car from the Supetar harbor, just north of the island, although it is also very common to get there by sea – just anchor the boat and enjoy the beach from another viewpoint.
The beach itself is fantastic, instead of sand, it has a kind of soft gravel, which produces a pleasant sound when hit by some light waves from the Adriatic. Looking at the clear blue sky, we felt the sun’s rays on us. Although the beach is big and crowded, you can still enjoy a pleasant feeling of peace and quiet. For fun, there is volleyball, windsurfing, and kite surfing; there are also speedboats and motorcycles. Still, simply lying there and soaking up the mild sun of the Adriatic can leave you feeling energized and peaceful. In addition, if you get tired of the sun, just 15 meters away is a lush pine forest that supplies shade, especially at noon, when people would want to eat and refuel their bodies from a day at the beach.
Zlatni Rat is undoubtedly a stunning beach, which can only be found in a wonderful country like Croatia.
