Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape) is a narrow white pebble beach on a promontory near Bol, located 2 km west of Bol harbour, on the southern coast of the island of Brac, Croatia.
The shape of the beach shifts with the changes in tide, currents and wind, veering out into the sea 634 m long.
A reliable afternoon westerly wind is known as a Maestral, together with clear and somewhat cool water make the beach a destination for windsurfers.
The beach is bordered by a pine tree grove in which one can find remnants of a Roman villa rustica, including a swimming pool.
The westmost edge of the beach and several coves to the west of the main beach are clothing-optional.
The promontory is protected as a geomorphological phenomenon.
