Popular stopover for charter boats coming to or from Split, particularly near the weekends when bareboats are leaving or returning.Howard and Jayne [ Just Imagine ] 22-Jun-2007
You may not anchor, but a mooring costs about 90 Kuna for 10-12 meters.
Good restaurant ashore.
Zlatni Rat -Bol (Beach)
Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn)
Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) is an unusual and beautiful sand spit sticking out of the south coast of Brac island.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 20-Nov-2008
The beach is very popular. Tourists throng to this amazing beach scape of tiny white pebbles with the mountainous landscape on Brac behind.
The corner on the left is a popular naturist beach.
The swimming bouys restrict anchoring in the beautiful, protected shallow water to the west of the horn. We ended up anchoring in 38 feet outside the bouys.
Because of the depth of the water and the proximity of other boats around us, I stayed onboard, but Jayne swam ashore in the 22C water, determined to sunbathe on the end of this amazing spit of land.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 29-Nov-2009
We approached the eastern cove when we first arrived, but were quickly accosted by a boat man offering us a mooring, saying that anchoring was only permitted on the west side. Since we were only planning on a lunch stop we declined the mooring without asking the price, which I am sure would be quite steep.
We later found that the only available anchorage was in deep water, so if you plan to stay the night, you might consider the mooring option.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 29-Nov-2009
Nude Beach (Beach)
The north west corner of the beach and the smaller coves to the west were all predominantly nude beaches.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 29-Nov-2009

Can be quite busy, especially when charter boats are returning to Split.
Luka Stipanska (Anchorage)
Cosy cove with a beautiful, 300 year old mill and wine cellar restored into a guest house.
It is difficult to see the entrance until you are up close, but there are no significant hazards.
We anchored in 14 feet of water in the center of the bay and took a line ashore to the west where there are several suitable rocks to tie to. One could probably swing comfortably ant anchor if there were no other boats, but the weather was threatening and there were about 6 boats in the bay.
Holding was good.
The guesthouse is run by the Sauer family who also provide engine, gearbox and electronic services throughout Brac.
Apparently, one can make dinner reservations at the guest house off season, when they are not busy. You will need to arrange in advance. We could not go ashore due to severe thunderstorms, but we were quite well protected.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 29-Nov-2009
