GOLDEN HORN – THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACH ON ADRIATIC
The Golden Horn is the most popular beach of all Croatia’s beaches & bays on the Adriatic. You’ve probably already seen it on some Croatian postcards, traveling brochures or advertising banners. And if you’ve ever seen a video of Croatia, the legendary “horn” was sure to be included.
It’s situated in the small village Bol on the island Brač, the largest island in Dalmatia. With its peak Vidova Gora, Brač is also the highest Croatian island. From Vidova Gora you can see the spectacular view of the central Dalmatian islands, and what’s most important, you get a spectacular view of the Golden Horn.
Back to marvelous Golden Horn beach. This beautiful gem is not so far from Split if you don’t mind a ferry and a bus ride. The beach is unique for the fact it changes position & shape, depending on the wind and currents. Important to note is that it is a pebbly beach, not a sandy one as it may appear. Thanks to its position, it attracts many visitors not just for swimming and sunbathing. You can also to do some sports activities, chief among which is windsurfing. Plus, you’ll find pedal boats, jet-skis, scuba diving, volleyball and other fun summer activities.
On the beach, only one part is available for windsurfers, protected with a net although Bol is actually famous for windsurfing – perfect when the beloved Maestral wind appears.
There are two ways to visit the Golden Horn beach that we find to be the easiest. The local ferry company, Jadrolinija has a catamaran that takes you straight to Bol. But, seeing as it usually runs around 4 pm, it isn’t the best option for day tours. In that case, you can take the ferry from Split to Supetar and grab a taxi or one of the regular bus lines to Bol. If you wish to visit the magnificent pearl of Croatia with a spectacular panoramic view from Vidova Gora combined, you can always book a tour.
