It’s Vidova Gora on the island of Brač, Croatia. The height of 780 m above the Sea does not look impressive at first sight. However, bear in mind that starting point is relatively low, so there is quite some altitude to master before your reach the peak.
Vidova Gora sits right above Bol, a small town of extraordinary beauty, planetary known because of the natural phenomenon called The Golden Cape or The Golden Horn (Zlatni Rat).
Zlatni Rat is a spit of land located about 2 kilometers west of the Bol harbor. The beaches on either side of the spit extend for some 634 meters altogether, but the exact shape and length of the landform varies with regard to the tide, current, and wind changes. The spit points directly south. The farthest end, which is usually turned slightly toward the east, will often shift to the west in certain weather conditions, esp. a robust south-easterly wind known in Croatia as the “jugo”. Changes in the shape of the beach occur once every two to three years. The surrounding waters are usually cool and clear, due to the current in the Hvar Channel. And the place is perfect for windsurfing!
Well, when you climb on Vidova Gora, you’ll enjoy a multitude of sights on Zlatni Rat!
