Yet one more recognition for the beauty of the beaches of Central Dalmatia as iconic Zlatni Rat in Bol on the island of Brac has been named the best beach in the entire world. And who are we to disagree?
Big 7 Travel put Zlatni Rat on top of the world after calculating the top 50 using readers votes, aggregating previous media coverage, Blue Flag locations and some editorial input. You can see the full list here, and this is what they had to say about Croatia’s most famous beach:
Zlatni Rat is the most spectacular of all Croatia’s beaches. It’s not just its shape that makes it so beautiful and unique. The pebble beach is surrounded by crystal clear sea, that goes from turquoise blue to dark blue in just 10-20 meters.
Decades-old pine trees provide shade, but you won’t want to get out of the warm waters here. It’s clear to see why this is the best beach in the world for 2019…
Zlatni Rat was not the only Central Dalmatian beach to hit the top 50, as Jagodna on the shores of southern Hvar came in at number 32:
Hvar has plenty of picture-perfect beaches, but this especially beautiful cove is a highlight. It’s located between Sveta Nedjelja and Ivan Dolac, and has pebble beaches, crystal clear waters and thick pine forests.
The water is warm and the sand squeaky clean – perfection.
