Dubrovnik (Area of) Holidays

Show on Map

The Dubrovnik region offers stunning waterfronts, unspoiled islands and a beautiful medieval city all in one break.

The best of both worlds

The area of Dubrovnik delivers two holidays in one. Dubrovnik Old Town offers a picturesque city break while peaceful Cavtat is perfect for a relaxing holiday in the sun. And there are plenty of pretty islands to hop around, too.

Explore more

Dubrovnik lies close to the southern borders of Croatia. That means you’ll be in day-trip distance of Montenegro. It’s a stunning country with five national parks and some chic beach resorts. You could just as easily pop across the border to Bosnia & Herzegovina to see stunning Ottoman palaces and deep canyons.

Medieval Dubrovnik

Lord Byron described Dubrovnik Old Town as ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a gem of a city, with terracotta rooftops, medieval walls, cobbled alleyways and a glistening harbour.

Best beaches

Banje Beach near Dubrovnik Old Town may be pebbly, but it has the best coastal views in the city. Cavtat Beach comes with a breathtaking mountain backdrop and a variety of watersports. Mlini and Plat are more laid-back, but for the most secluded sunbathing, go cove hunting on the islands of Lopud, Korčula and Mljet.

Top sights

Dubrovnik’s UNESCO-listed old town is not to be missed. Within its chunky walls you’ll find a maze of cobbled streets, medieval houses, grand palaces and historic churches. Plus there’s no shortage of stylish boutiques, bar and restaurants, especially down on the harbour.

Out and about

The islands off the coast of Dubrovnik are all within easy daytripping distance. Mljet gives you lush green forests and two saltwater lakes to hike around. Lopud is a car-free paradise with stunning forest trails. Korčula comes cloaked in vineyards that surround a scenic medieval town.

Eating and drinking

The local cuisine owes a lot to its Adriatic neighbour, Italy, so you could easily find yourself tucking into a tasty risotto or pasta dish during your stay. And thanks to the region’s coastal spot, there’s plenty of fresh seafood, too. Wash it down with a glass of Pošip, a light white wine from the island of Korčula.

Shopping

Foodies will have a field day here. Rose liqueur, lavender honey and the local Bajadera chocolate are just some of the tempting products you’ll find in market stalls of the Dubrovnik region. Red coral jewellery is another local speciality that makes for a great take-home gift.

Nightlife

Dubrovnik’s old town has a lively after-hours scene. Chic cocktail bars and bustling pubs line the medieval streets and you’ll find lots of live music, too. For DJs and dancing, head to the nightclubs around the Pile Gate on the western wall.
