8 November 2011 No Comment

The American Los Angeles Times included the beach Zlatni Rat in Bol on the island of Brač on the list of 40 most beautiful and most unusual places in the world. According to their assessment, Zlatni Rat is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

“For those who think that all beaches are the same (water, sand, waves), think again. Welcome to Zlatni rat, a spectacular beach on the Croatian coast,” writes the LA Times whose list features some trully unusual places, such as the Great Blue Hole in the Bahamas, the Ice Hotel in Sweden, the underwater restaurant in the Maldives and Cappadocia in Turkey.

Zlatni rat is composed of white pebbles, and is known for its natural phenomenon; influenced by wind and waves the beach is constantly changing shape turning its peak from one side to the other. Tourists say that on Zlatni Rat they can get the fastest tan and on one of its sides the sea is always calm. A legend says that on it you can find the stone of happiness in the form of a snail shell.

Zlatni rat has become not only a trademark of Bol, but also a valuable symbol of Croatian tourism. This famous beach can be seen on the front pages of many travel brochures. Many can not resist its charms. It stretches about half a kilometer into the sea like a sandy tongue covered with thick pine forests. Bol is the oldest coastal village and holiday resort on the southern coast of Brač, the largest Dalmatian island. Old Bol was the place of wine growers, fishermen and seafarers, and is now a tourist environment with hotel complexes, private homes and apartments. Restaurants with original dalmatian recipes, diving, sailing and tennis clubs, fitness centers and the local port, popular among boaters, make Bol a desirable tourist destination.
