Enjoy an unforgettable experience at the famed golden cape beach

The Bol area stretches for kilometers along the spectacular coastline and features many beautiful beaches, among which is the world famous beach Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape). This beach is a unique natural phenomenon whose sandy peninsula extends nearly half a kilometer into the clear blue sea like a small tongue. It “grows” with the depositing and sedimentation of small gravelly pebbles around the underwater reef, and the tip of the beach is constantly changing its shape, attempting to conform to the will of the waves and gentle sea currents.
Today, it is a center for the island’s tourism and one of the most sought-after destinations in the Dalmatian Riviera. After swimming, snorkeling or stand-up paddle boarding on this stunning beach, enjoy a delicious Dalmatian lunch aboard our luxury yacht.

Best time ever! Had such a fantastic time, hosts were very hospitable, nothing too much trouble. Captain Zoran and co. were so friendly and welcoming. Was great to have our own tour guide on board too. So glad we did the multi-Day tour, Great food, great company, couldn't have asked for more.
Croatian five star Pearl Adventure Holiday Captain Zoran, Blaza, Ivan, Zoran, Robert and the other lovely staff at Korcula Adventures have just provided us with a truly special holiday. As a family of 3 (14 year old) we have stayed in villas with friends, done the Mark Warner/ Neilson holidays, stayed in hotels, Peligoni in Greece etc. We loved Croatia, the people, history, azure seas ( a storm as well, with 4 incredible water spout/ mini tornadoes crossing the sky/bay) wonderful food and locally caught sea food. From the minute we were picked up at the airport, by a friendly Zoran and taken to a superb restaurant for lunch, to being shown around our villa by Captain Zoran. We were looked after for the entire holiday. Korcula Adventures is a family run business, where you feel immediately 'at home' and cared for on an individual basis, nothing is too much for Zoran and his family. Anyone who complains about disorganisation, tardiness, lack of service; just does not 'get' the Croatian 'vibe'. Everyone is working hard , 24/7, to make sure you have an amazing holiday, sometimes things don't go to plan, relax, it all works in the end. It is hard to believe that this country was devastated by war 20 years ago. There are still signs of poverty in Korcula, but the super yachts in the bays and the tourists are helping this wonderful country to recover. As per the other reviews, the joy of this holiday is not having to make any descisions about what to do: well maybe just where to eat in the evenings. The daily adventures aboard the 44ft motor boat, the rib, or the little boat we were given for the day ( with lunch at a local restuarant paid for). The free access to kayaks, mountain bikes and a car included in our stay, are all 'included add ons' that make this holiday so unique. The accommodation, a beautifully specified apartment with spectacular views across the two bays, a shared swimming pool, fully equipped gym with AC and BBQ terrace with a welcome bottle of wine and lemonade, were just the icing on an already spectacular cake. We will be back!
