Zlatni Rat is a spit of land on the island of Brač that ends up in the Adriatic Sea, located in the region of Dalmatia, the Republic of Croatia. As it extends into the Hvar Channel, it is a home to a strong currents, making the land form of white pebble beach, with a Mediterranean pine grove taking up the remainder.
The beaches which can be found on both sides, are some 634 metre (2,080 feet) altogether, however, the shape and the length always vary due to the tide, current and wind. Sometimes it can be “destroyed” by the sea, sometimes made from the sea.
The surrounding waters are usually cool and very clear, due to the current in the Hvar Channel. The current is mildly hazardous for swimmers who decide to venture far directly southwards from the tip towards the open sea, as it could be difficult to swim back west towards the beach.
The pine tree grove which borders the beach is home to the remnants of a Roman villa rustica, which included a swimming pool. The westernmost edge of the beach, and several coves to the west of the main beach, are traditionally clothing-optional, which makes it really important and the promontory is protected as a geomorphological phenomenon. Truly alluring place where you want to be during summertime.
