Day Trip to Zlatni Rat Beach


I was owing to you some posts about my summer trip! As some of you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I traveled to Croatia again! I know, it's such a small country but with so many beautiful places and cities to visit that I always feel like there is more to see, even though I already visited the country three times!  Crazy, isn't it?
Anyway, one of the places I was dying to see in this third visit was Zlatni Rat Beach because I have seen it all over Instagram and it looked incredible on pictures so I was really looking forward to seeing it with my own eyes! I have to say I wasn't disappointed at all. Zlatni Rat is without a doubt one of the must-visit beaches in Croatia because it has a very particular shape. It looks like a golden horn, and that is exactly what the name means if you translate it. Also, the water is extremely clear and it has the most amazing blue color I have ever seen in my life!





But before we continue, I would like to share with you some useful information. Zlatni Rat is located near a city called Bol, which is located on Brač island. This island is very close to Split and it's very easy to get there by ferry. There are plenty of ferries leaving from Split port to Brač island and the other way around all day, and the trip takes just one hour. Plus, I always enjoy a lot taking the ferry, it's very nice to be out in the Adriatic and to enjoy the fresh breeze of the sea. Once you arrive on Brač island, the ferry will leave you at Supetar port which is on one side of the island. Bol is located on the other side, so you need to take a bus to get there. The bus schedule is very well coordinated with the ferry schedule so, once you arrive it's very likely that you will have a bus waiting for you :) Also, the bus ride is very spectacular as well, and when you start getting close to Bol you can even see Zlatni Rat from there! I have to say I got very excited when I first saw it from the bus!







When you get to Bol Bus Station there is still a little walk until you can finally reach Zlatni Rat. It looks like it's such a long journey to get there but I can assure you that it's totally worth it! 
Even though this is a very popular beach and it's was quite crowded when I visited, it has a very large surface so you can find a nice spot for yourself there. One thing I loved about this beach, is that there is a part of it that has a lot of trees, so if you are feeling too hot from being in the sun and want to stay a little bit in the shade you can! In addition, this beach has everything you may need: toilettes and showers, a very cool beach bar, shops to buy ice cream, coffee, fruits, and smoothies. So you can easily spend your whole day here without any problems and I'm sure that once you get to the beach, those will be your plans! I really didn't want to leave this place!










As I said before, the water is, to me, the most impressive thing in Zlatni Rat. It's incredibly clear and it has the most beautiful light blue color with some emerald green shades! The water is fresh but it's not so cold, so after all the walk from Bol until you get to the beach you really appreciate the fresh water to cool down from the heat of the summer :)





Lastly, after relaxing and enjoying at the beach the whole day, at  5:30pm I started to walk back to Bol to take the bus and I also did some pretty nice pictures of the city, which I will be sharing with you in a future post! 
So, I hope you like the pictures and I would love to know if you knew about this beach and If you had the chance to visit it, I would love to know your thoughts!
