  • Small cozy village with promenade where there are a lot of restaurants and cafes. We took the boat from Dubrovnik and it didn't take 25 mins they said before, but nearly an hour. Keep track of when the tours going back. No full-day excursion, but just enough to stroll around and then conclude with lunch, we were there for 3 hours and it was all well and good.
