Sveti Jakov Beach, Dubrovnik

(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
One of Dubrovnik's most popular seaside attractions, Sveti Jakov Beach sits on a little bay below a small church. Located near the Old Town, the pebbly beach provides an ideal setting for a leisurely rest with a good book. Adventurous water buffs can explore the coastline by kayak or visit the nearby cave where scientist Rudjer Boskovic performed his experiments with optics. You can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas right on the beach, and get a cold drink and a snack at one of the nearby bars.

  • Here, Saint Jacob beach is a beautiful beach located in the immediate vicinity of the Hotel Belvedere became a ruin, destroyed during the Yugoslav conflict,. As hidden in the Cliff Bay is a small beach, but the water clarity is nice, very romantic. On the beach to take photos and looks across the Bay, is part of the Dubrovnik city walls and old town Orange roof spot. And water slowly so not crowded like bunjebeach out in the shade reading books, I was hot, and is the best place to spend at the beach without what a peaceful. You can reach and if I think some hotels boat, the shuttle was out or goes public, Viktorija bus ride from Dubrovnik cable car bus close by. Walking time 1 is quite fun because I think time and enjoy the stunning views of the Adriatic Sea, either just walking her.

  • Lovely little piece of paradise, clear water, server there is even a small shower to rinse it! The water is good.

  • Beach not too far from the old town of Dubrovnik where worth spending a day at the beach. You get in the car in a quiet area where you can park (may incur charges, if I remember correctly) and go down to the sea between green and many steps ... Pebble Beach equipped with clear water (and cold as everywhere in those areas). Pleasant, with good dishes, a terrace overlooking the sea and affordable the restaurant on the beach.
