Dubrovnik Area

Dubrovnik Area holidays


The Dubrovnik region of Croatia stretches along the country’s south-east coast, sandwiched between Bosnia & Herzegovina to the east and the Adriatic Sea to the west. The region offers stunning waterfronts, unspoiled islands and a beautiful medieval city all in one break. And the UNESCO-listed old town is not to be missed.

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 – Mljet gives you lush green forests and two saltwater lakes to hike around.

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 on the harbour.

Cavtat

Cavtat, the dreamy harbour town, is conveniently placed for getting around Croatia’s Adriatic coast.

Dubrovnik Lapad

Right next to the Old Town of Dubrovnik, along the Croatian coast, the Lapad peninsula is a breath of fresh air in amongst its maze of terracotta roofs.

Dubrovnik Babin Kuk

Tucked away on the north-western tip of Dubrovnik, Babin Kuk is a great base for epic days of exploration.

Mlini

Neatly positioned between the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ – Dubrovnik – and the pretty town of Cavtat, Mlini ticks all of the boxes for a traditional Croatian escape.

Dubrovnik Old Town

Dubrovnik’s charming Old Town is a cobweb of UNESCO-stamped landmarks and historic marvels, only 4km south of the border with Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Korcula Island

This idyllic island is a hit with families, thanks to its lively, medieval port town and handful of secluded beaches.

Srebreno

While fishing and farming dominate local life, you’ll find Srebreno a haven of seaside swimming and mountain conquering.

Sipan Island

The largest of the Elaphiti Islands, Šipan is loaded with bright blue views whichever way you turn.

Orebic

Snoozing on the southside of the Pelješac Peninsula, Orebić is a stunning resort that exudes charm.

Lopud Island

A sleepy, car-free island covered in pine forest, groves of lemon trees, sandy bays and terracotta-topped houses – you’ll find lush Lopud just a ferry ride away from Dubrovnik.

Orasac

With a history of old origins and invading pirates, there’s a lot for keen explorers to unearth in Orašac.

Dubrovnik Gruz

Just a stone’s throw from Dubrovnik Old Town, the suburb of Gruž is a charming base for exploring traditional Croatia.

Beaches

For a classic day on the beach, head to the sweeping Golden Bay – close to Mellieha, it’s gifted with soft, dusty sand and shallow water that’s suited to paddling. Mellieha Bay has a great stretch, too. So if you’re after a bit of choice, Malta’s got it in spades.

Exploring the little towns and waterside paths is essential.
