Dubrovnik Coast

Dubrovnik Coast holidays

Around dreamy Dubrovnik and its neighbours, days of sightseeing and island-hopping adventures give way to evenings of waterfront wining and dining. Taking centre stage is Dubrovnik’s swoon-worthy Old Town, with its network of ancient alleys, pretty piazzas and terracotta rooftops all wrapped up in grand stone walls. But out of town, secluded coves, fragrant pine forests and handsome harbours are ripe for exploring. And that’s before we get started on the emerald islands – each one with its own standout scenery, alongside plenty of culture and lots of local cuisine to boot. Fancy venturing further afield? Day trips to Montenegro and Bosnia are even on the cards…

The best of both worlds

A Dubrovnik holiday delivers two getaways in one. Dubrovnik Old Town offers a picturesque city break while peaceful Cavtat is perfect for a relaxing retreat in the sun. And there are many islands to hop across to. Mljet gives you lush green forests and two saltwater lakes to hike around, while the Elaphiti Islands are not to be missed.

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 waterfront. Plus, there’s no shortage of stylish boutiques, bar and restaurants, especially down at the harbour.
