Bol Croatia really offers you a top spot - the beach!

Bol is a town in Croatia, located on the island of Brac. Situated on the southern tip of the island, this town is in the Split-Dalmatia County and boasts a population of 1,661.

The town of Bol is mostly famous for its beautiful beach, which has become a very popular destination for people in the area. The beach is called Zlatni rat, which means "golden cape."

The beach is comprised mostly of pebble rock that continuously moves with the tides. You can actually see the rocks moving with your own eyes. This is one of the main reasons people come to the beach.

Another reason tourists visit this beach is to see and enjoy the spectacular water. The sea on the beachfront is crystalline and a bit colder than what you may be used to at other beaches in Croatia. This is because of the strong current in the strait.

On a quiet day you can actually view the stones on the bottom of the sea floor as if they are up close, even though they're actually 30ft. down.

There are amazing pine trees growing straight down the middle of the sand, splitting the beach in two. It's no wonder people keep coming back to Zlatni rat to experience the unique waters and enjoy everything the beach has to offer.
