Zlatni Rat Beach (Golden Horn Beach) got its name because of its unique shape and golden color. It is located in a small town, Bol, on the island of Brac. The Adriatic Sea water is crystal clear but the beach actually has no sand at all (only pebbles and rocks), which is typical for beaches in the Mediterranean. So don't get fooled by the online pictures that make it look like a white-sand beach. Nevertheless, Zlatni Rat Beach is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia and there will likely be a large crowd during the peak summer season.
The beach can get pretty windy and the wind gusts change direction throughout the day. The good part is that the beach is two-sided so no matter which direction the wind blows, there is always one side where the water remains calm for swimming while the other windy side is perfect for various water sports. Bol is internationally famous as a windsurfers' destination and Zlatni Rat Beach gets a fair share of those surfers. The beach is also family friendly and there are a few food vendors, bars, and cafes on the beach to round out the experience.
