2. Try learning how to kite surf here. The water is crystal clear and a few companies offer lessons for beginners.
3. If you are staying in Split and coming here for a day by ferry, you can either take the bus over to the beach or taxi it. With a group of people, a taxi can be the same price as a bus and will take less time.
Zlatni Rat in Croatia is a beach with pebbles so white you’d think from a distance the entire area was made up of find sand. However, this spot on Brac island (located in the town of Bol) is home to one of the best stone beaches in the world, and is constantly rated as a must-see place in Croatia by numerous travel magazines. After hopping on a quick ferry from Split to spend the day here, I can see why.
My only regret about visiting Zlatni Rat in Croatia is that we didn’t actually stay on the island of Brac. There wasn’t a whole lot going on here, but that was all part of the charm. I would recommend staying for a couple days max, and think of the area as a place to reboot if you’ve been on the go for a while. Kite surfing is also quite popular, so if you’re not into lazing on the beach all day, you can purchase a few lessons and hone your skills.

The beach itself is gorgeous, jutting out from the island in a V-shape with pebbles spilling out into the ocean. Because the drop off is gradual with zero sediment due to the pebbles, it feels as though you are swimming in a heated pool. Needless to say I spent hours moving back and forth between the water and land. The scenery also includes massive yachts that come by from neighbouring islands, so you can always sit and gawk at just how much millions of dollars can buy.
As a side note for the ladies, going topless is completely accepted. For the men: enjoy. I definitely caught Kyle becoming quite distracted when a nearby women decided to oil up for a killer tan.His Take
