    Underwhelming gravel tip
    What an underwhelming beach . Walked for miles to get there . An overcrowded gravel pit of a place . People vying to squash under trees to get shade. Overpriced sunbeds . Loud bar . Definitely not worth the trip. Best bit was the water taxi we took to return to the town.

    An extraordinary experience!
    A very beautiful beach,a pebble beach where you can enjoy the crystal waters of Zlatni Rat Beach. Surrounded by a lot of restaurants located among the trees,they were all the time full of peolple.People found themselves in different sports,such as:windsurf,water cycling. There was a buggy that worked to transport people from the beach.

    Beautiful beach, excellent facilities
    Beautiful beach, and our favourite beach that we visited out of Bol/Hvar/Split- mainly due to the excellent facilities. Lots of sunbeds to rent, which are cheaper compared to Hvar. Lots of shady places available to sit. There is an amazing selection of food stalls and restaurants in the woodland area in the centre of the beach. Toilets are very clean, with showers available (have to pay but worth it for the cleanliness). Also a children’s park area, as well as areas to hire kayaks and paddle boards.

    Absolutely gorgeous beach. Expensive but clean and good fun
    My family had a lovely day at this beach. It is expensive, but most of Croatia is in tourist season. It’s quite crowded but again, nothing unusual about that. But it is also charming, exceptionally clean and well maintained, excellent facilities and really lovely to spend time there. We took a boat from Split and then a stupidly expensive taxi (try and work out a better way of getting around!) but it was worth it in the end. One side of the beach is calm water, perfect for little kids and gentle swimming. The other has loads of waves for the bigger kids to throw themselves into. The food area is immaculate with loads of amazing options - my kids had a pizza, I had a healthy chia seed fruit bowl! There’s also a very relaxed each bar with tunes and big bean bags. My kids said it was their favourite day of the holiday :)

    Dream beach!
    Beautiful spot! The best view of the beach is from viewpoint, more difficult to get good overview photos from beach level.. many nice relax areas, food trucks and two very nice and comfortable coffe/restaurants. Ok restroms. Parking 20,- EUR for full day, 1 h 5 EUR. Nice sunbeds, some deluxe options available. Highly recommend to spend a beach day here!

    Rat Beach
    A beautiful beach and the water is so clear. It drops off rapidly in the water. It is rocky but not with sharp rocks. We rented one of the cabanas for 40€, well worth it. The sun gets hot, so well worth being under the cabana. Walk the promenade to get to the beach. A lot of interesting stands along the way. A fun beach day!

    Worth the trip
    Yes, it’s not cheap to park here or get a sun lounger and in the peak of the season it’s probably too full. But.. it IS a beautiful beach, you can swim out quite far, and if you get tired of the crowds just move west a bit to the coves near to it. We were glad we came!

    So lovely. A MUST VISIT.
    Such a beautiful spot. Lovely clear sea to enjoy. Water sport activities for the adventurous and good food huts. We sat on the east side close to the sea on a (paid hire) sun lounger. We found between the southern point of the woodland and the inflatable water park at the top seemed to be sheltered from the breeze which made us more comfortable. We visited a few times in our week in Bol and found that different times of day meant different things to enjoy. Being here as the sun went down was magical, as was being here early before it got busy and when it was busy it is nice just floating about in the sea.

    A little underwhelming
    We visited 19/09/22. We arrived at Bol on the island of Brač where we had just under 4 hours to visit as we were on an island hopping excursion. There were water taxis and a land trainb but we decided to walk the length of the island, looking in local stores and map reading along the way. We wanted to make the most of it. We made it to the famous golden horn beach where we sat and took in the beautiful clear waters and views. The beach itself was slightly underwhelming. It was stoney and really difficult to walk on without shoes (I guess we figured out why sea shoes were in every shop here, lol). But the sea itself was beautiful and clear. We decided to treat ourselves to take the water taxi back to the boat marina as the dock was right on the beach, which was really convenient.

This is more than a beach. The promenade walk was great filled with restaurants, bars, massages and hotels. So different as was just expecting a beach.

Easy flat walk to do.

Zlatni Rat is a beautiful beach, it's full of hot white stones and therefore walking on it with bare feet is challenging, but we were prepared for that. It's also a fun game to see who was able to hold on the longest without putting on watershoes, haha. The water looks very clean and we had a refreshing long swim here.

This is a really special place. I enjoyed a long swim along the shore and it was safe and warm to swim in. The views are spectacular. Not to be missed

One of the most beautiful beaches, certainly in Croatia, if not in the world. Stunning clear sea to swim or paddle in. There are water sport activities around the beach and food huts in the tree line where you can also get shade. We found the east side close to the sea was relatively sheltered by the tress in terms of wind and we sat on a (paid hire) sun lounger. During our holiday on Brac we visited a few times at different times of day and all had their magical appeal - sun rise and sun set are pretty.

We drove to the southern part of the island, to spend the afternoon at a very unusual beach beach - Zlatni Rat or Golden Horn Beach. The long V shaped beach that pokes into the sea. It is located on the cape that has the same name. The beach has become a popular local landmark because it changes its shape every day due to the action of waves and wind which have a direct influence on formation of the cape.

If you do decide to spend some time here, bring plenty of cash, parking was 20E, 2 chairs and an umbrella 36E. 1E to use the restroom – but regardless of the sticker shock, we enjoyed our afternoon.

The pebbly beach is quite large but bring water booties if you plan to go into the water. This is a pebble beach with no sand in sight. The area is surrounded by a small treed area that contains numerous eateries as well as a restroom with showers (all fee based).

The beach is framed by turquoise clear water and we enjoyed walking along the water’s edge from one end to the other. This beach is located just outside of Bol – about a 20 minute walk. Although the distance from Supetar (where the ferry will drop you off), is not far, the roads are twisty, there are no straight roads anywhere on the island, but the drive was spectacular.

What a disappointment. Another stony beach with beach bar, sun loungers etc. It might look great from the air in winter but forget it in summer. The town of Bol nearby was very nice.

Nice beach with plentey of facilities for hiring sunbeds and water sports plus bars and food stalls and toilets but very expensive 34 euros to hire 2 beds and a brolly which is about £31 that leaves a bitter pill to swallow especially if you're a family but since Croatia adopted the Euro everything is extremely expensive making a holiday here out of reach for many
