4.4/5 based on 190 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.
