Beach
“The Zlatni Rat, often referred to as the Golden Cape or Golden Horn (translated from the local Chakavian dialect), is a spit of land located about 2 kilometres (1 mile) west from the harbour town of Bol on the southern coast of the Croatian island of Brač, in the region of Dalmatia.The beaches on either side of the spit extend for some 634 metres (2,080 ft) altogether, but the exact shape and length of the landform varies with regard to changes in tide, current, and wind. The spit points directly south. The farthest end, which is usually turned slightly towards the east, will often shift to the west in certain weather conditions, esp. a strong south-easterly wind known in Croatia as the Jugo. Changes in the shape of the beach occur once in every two to three years, and have been observed in 2010, 2016 and 2018.”

Mountain
“Perfect place to enjoy the view to the see channel between Brac and Hvar. It is also possible to take a bicycle trip form Bol or from Supetar. Since there are long and steep slopes, it is better to rent a quad if you are not so fit for bicycle.”

Cocktail Bar
$$$
“As the evening arrives, after your dinner, visit Varadero in the soul spot of Bol. Varadero is a night cocktail bar with a long tradition for a reason. Easy-listening house music, friendly, but yet, professional staff and relaxed atmosphere is the simple Varadero formula. When the evening gets young, until 2:00 am, this is the place to seek for your night-out warmup!”

“This pretty terrace right above the Riva is where locals go for a good traditional meal. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the vitalac (spit-roasted lamb offal) or call ahead to order the delicious lamb or octopus under peka (domed baking lid).”

Island
“Brač is an island in the Adriatic Sea within Croatia, with an area of 396 square kilometres (153 sq mi), making it the largest island in Dalmatia, and the third largest in the Adriatic. It is separated from the mainland by the Brač Channel, which is 5 to 13 km (3 to 8 mi) wide. The island's tallest peak, Vidova gora, or Mount St. Vid, stands at 778 m, making it the highest island point in the Adriatic. The most famous attraction on the island of Brač it the most photographed beach of Croatia, the Zlatni rat in Bol. Often referred to as the Golden Cape or Golden Horn, it is a spit of land located about 2 kilometres (1 mile) west from the harbour town of Bol on the southern coast of the Croatian island of Brač, in the region of Dalmatia. It extends into the Hvar Channel, a body of water in the Adriatic Sea between the islands of Brač and Hvar, which is home to strong currents. The landform itself is mostly composed of a white pebble beach, with a Mediterranean pine grove taking up the remainder. The very tip of Zlatni rat keeps changing its shape constantly due to the influence of winds, waves and sea currents, making it appear different and repeatedly interesting. This location is a protected natural area and a favourite spot for surfers and kite-surfers from around the globe.”
