Croatia has no shortage of beautiful beaches, but Zlatni Rat stands out for its striking and unusual shape (which actually changes depending on the current). Though it looks like a golden sand beach, its shoreline is made up of smooth, tiny pebbles and stretches out for half a mile on either side of the tip. It’s not just a place to lounge: ZlatniRat is also a popular spot for windsurfing, jet-skiing, and stand-up paddle boarding.
