  • In our plans he was not going to Cavtat, but looking for hotel, we found one here good, nice and cheap and we stayed. Nearby Dubrovnik so we thought it would be a good choice to go and return to the city by car. At the end we saw that there were buses and boats to go, and we chose the latter. That is why, in the end, we took a good stroll at night and it is a very nice site. Near Dubrovnik, in a beautiful Bay, with a promenade full of life at night. It visits fast and is a quiet, albeit with many slopes.

  • Cavtat is a beautiful picturesque town on the coast of Croatia. A fabulous harbour with bars and restaurants for all the family.  more »
  • This is a small town just below Dubrovnik on the coast. There are several bed and breakfast at good prices. The town itself is really small and doesn't offer much. However, there are beautiful bays where you can swim and above all is well connected by sea in Dubrovnik, reached within half an hour by ferry.
