SeaHelp area guide: Brac, Bol, Zlatni Rat
„Zlatni rat“ (Golden Horn) is of the most photographed beaches of the Dalmatian coast which decorates a lot of tourism prospects. If we take a closer look of those photographs, we’ll notice that most of the photos are made from air, for which there is a reason. The famous beach next to the town of Bol on Braè isn’t that attractive being watched from a small distance, because all of its luxury is best discovered when observing from above.
That pebble beach, a Mecca for a large number of boaters, gains its shape due to the direction of wind and waves. Crystal clear sea and the pebble beach, alongside ancient pines, are creditable for this wonderful piece of uniquely coloured coast.
Except for „Zlatni rat“, there are numerous other options for anchoring on the island of Braè. In any case, it’s worth abandoning your vessel to explore Braè, especially in the pre and post-season when the island is not that packed with tourists. City of Supetar and towns – Bol, Milna, Nerežišæa, Postira, Puèišæa, Selca and Sutivan, are a window to the rich history and tradition of the island.
The island of Braè is, except for „Zlatni rat“, primarily known for its stone. A lot of famous buildings are built with the Braè stone: White House in Washington, The Parlament House in Vienna and Budapest, palaces in Vienna and Trieste, Pope’s altar in Vatican, Diocletians’s Palace in Split and a few cathedrals in Trogit and Split.
There is a rumour circulating that „Zlatni rat“ was discovered by pilots who flew over it to capture its changing shape, as well as its unique colour play.
