Zlatni Rat is most popular in mid-summer. Those who are able to visit in June or September may have the best chances of enjoying a warm, dry holiday without sharing the beach with too many other guests. The beach is accessible year-round, but facilities, including lifeguards, are only available from May through October. Like most beaches in Croatia, Zlatni Rat is comprised of pebbles rather than sand. Most guests will want beach shoes if they are not accustomed to walking on this type of land.
