The promenade is pedestrian and lined and departs from the port from nearby Bol. Along the way you can enjoy really beautiful sea views. Once you arrive at your destination you may be disappointed because of the large amount of tourists, sunbeds, umbrellas, kiosks, restaurants etc. The beach is formed by pebbles, the water is crystal clear and cold pictosto. It is special in that it is a peninsula in the middle of the sea that has a windier side and with the sea more choppy than the other.
Being Australian we're used to beautiful golden sandy beaches so it's tough to be overly enthusiastic about a pebble outcrop off the coast of Croatia. However, I can say we did enjoy the "experience" and if anything else it makes me appreciate ours back home even more. At least there are no sharks here 😁👍
I've given the beach one star because there is no option for a lower rating. It probably is lovely beach but it is absolutely rammed full in peak season with many, many boat trips from the mainland. We went there early September and the entire length of the beach was full for about eight or nine rows back from the water's edge and with hundreds of people in the wooded area behind. If you are visiting on a boat trip in peak times, save yourself the trouble of visiting this beach and walk part of the way from the harbour and enjoy one or more of the more relaxed and less crowded coves and small beaches before you get to the 'main attraction'. On a positive, the sea around this part is stunningly clear.
