Dayna J's City Tips

  • As with many other European beaches, many of the nearby facilities need to be paid for.
  • Many beaches can be visited within one day. Purchase an all-day public transport ticket at a kiosk to hop on and hop off buses to visit an array of beaches.
  • Make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen and light layers of clothing.
  • Beach shoes can be extremely helpful and allow easy access to the water on the many pebbled beaches in and around Dubrovnik.

    Dayna J Says:

    Banje Beach has some of the most stunning views of the ancient city walls and the Old Town in Dubrovnik. Choose to hire a sun bed or to rest your head on the pebbled/sand beach while laying down on your towel.

    Overlooking the beautiful cliff towards Lokrum Island is Cafe Buza. There is space on the concrete further down from the cafe to soak up some sun and watch some dare devils take cliff dives off the edge.

    • Buza cafe and beach is south of the Old City, so don't mistake it for the beach on the north side of the city, where Buza Gate lies.

    Beaches
    Dayna J Says:

    A perfect place for everyone! This beach is well suited for families as well as the solo traveler, seniors, couples, and friends, as it has a nearby cafe and bar as well as toilet facilities. This beach overlooks Dubrovnik Bridge and harbor so in the peak season you may get the opportunity to see a large cruise boat sail in or out of the harbor.

    Dayna J Says:

    The Island of Lokrum — located just a 30-minute ferry-ride away from Dubrovnik — provides you with the opportunity to find a more private, peaceful beach to relax and enjoy the sun's rays.

    Tips
    • Visit Lokrum Island for an entire day, but be sure to take everything, including food, drinks, comfortable shoes, bathing suit, and sun protection with you.
    • No need to take a tour out to the Island of Lokrum as you can gain access to the Island by ferry, which can be organized in the Old Town near the harbor.

    Located a mile away from the main center of Dubrovnik, this beach can provide a little more privacy than other beaches around the city. The waters are surrounded by a pebbled and sand beach.
