THINGS TO DO IN DUBROVNIK - longer stay

December 18, 2017

 

If you plan to have a short stay in Dubrovnik, like a day or two, read more about it in my things to do in Dubrovnik - short stay post.

 

For a longer stay:

  • SAIL OFF TO THE ISLAND LOKRUM

15 minutes boat ride from the Old town there is an island called Lokrum. It is a perfect escape if you want to avoid crowds concentrated in the Old town, especially if you happen to be there on a day when cruise ships are scheduled to arrive to Dubrovnik. Lokrum is not inhabited but offers several attractions: former Benedictine monastery complex, a small lake called the 'Dead sea', a fortress built by Napoleon troupes, beautiful gardens and paths along the island. During the tourist season you will also find food&beverages amenities. Peacocks and rabbits are scattered around the island and it is likely they will be interested in you. Mindfulness and privacy are guaranteed on Lokrum. And if naturism is your life philosophy, you will be glad to hear that there is a nudist beach on the southern side of the island. (Just take in consideration that what we intend for beach here are often rocks).

  • VISIT CAVTAT

Cavtat is a little town situated 20 km from Dubrovnik. It is a charming tourist destination which conquers with its seafront walking trail and historical center with Mediterranean architecture, quaint bars and restaurants. Without hesitation I recommend you to dine there. Because of its relaxing atmosphere and the greenery, it is a perfect setting for a light lunch, especially during warm months. Cavtat is within easy reach from Dubrovnik. There is a boat connection departing from the Old town. You can also take a local bus (number 10). Or you could book my tour that includes Cavtat.

  • DO AS LOCALS DO IN LAPAD BAY AREA

The bay of Lapad (uvala Lapad) is the second most popular area in Dubrovnik after the Old town. It is a meeting place for locals who tend to enjoy their lattes on the Lapad promenade almost every day. The experience often continues with a battery charging seaside walk, along which, among nice accommodation developments, there is the famous Cave bar. In addition, the bay of Lapad has been enriched with a recently improved attractive beach area. 

 

 

  • TAKE A HALF-DAY OR A DAY TRIP FROM DUBROVNIK

The advantage of a vacation in Dubrovnik is that you do not need to go far to explore new countries. For example, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina are both within one hour drive from Dubrovnik. Day trips to those areas are the most popular things to do in Dubrovnik, once you are done with exploring Dubrovnik itself. There are differently organized day trips that you can take and if you are interested in a private tour with a local driver guide, you can check my list of day trips from Dubrovnik.
