#3 of 8 in Nature in Dubrovnik
Island Nature / Park
Experience the easygoing Adriatic life as you explore the hilly terrain of Elaphiti Islands. Pliny the Elder named the archipelago Elaphiti, the Greek word for deer--which used to inhabit the area in large numbers. Take a ferry or a fast passenger boat from Dubrovnik and visit all three major islands. Admire the lush Mediterranean vegetation, including groves of orange and lemon trees. Visit quiet bays, beaches, and the remains of old churches and summer residences. Note that accommodation prices here are a bit cheaper than those in Dubrovnik. Make Elaphiti Islands a part of your Dubrovnik vacation plans using our Dubrovnik vacation trip planner.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
