#1 of 6 in Beaches in Dubrovnik
Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • I've been to Sveti beach a few times, it's one of my favorites in old town. I walk there from old town, yes it is a bit of a walk but knowing I'm in the Adriatic Sea to cool off makes it worth it. You...  more »
  • Nice view of dubrovnik, but be careful a lot of steps to reach the beach. Chairs are for rent for 50kn/pers. Handy since it's not a sandy beach. Bar and restaurant available! The water is nice and clear

  • Rocky, tiny and crowded. Its location requires some effort: quite a walk from downtown with such boiling temperatures, hence accessing it. It's on a cliff, so the stairs down need your 100% attention.  more »

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.
