From June to September, boats leave from the Old Port for the Elaphiti islands of Koločep, Lopud and Šipan, as well as the island of Lokrum and the village of Cavtat along the coast. Dubrovnik Boats operates services to the Elaphites. Tirena, a wooden galleon ship, also organises sunset cruises.

Dubrovnik excursions


The small mountainous nation of Montenegro is close enough to be managed as a short side trip. Its rugged mountain range leaves enough space for a string of seaside towns and villages. The historic town of Kotor is a justifiably popular tourist spot, resembling a more workaday version of Dubrovnik.

Dalmatian islands

Dubrovnik makes a good base for exploring the southern Dalmatian islands. One of the most visited is the lush green jewel Mljet, much of which is a national park. Hire a bike and circle the network of paths and lakes. The smaller Elaphite islands (Koločep, Lopud and Šipan) are worth a visit too.

Featured Hotels


Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik

Overlooking Miramare Bay, this peaceful hotel has been carved into a cliff, giving all of its 93 rooms stunning sea views. Warm wood and local stone are used in the contemporary rooms, adorned with works by Croatian artists. The soothing spa has an indoor pool, and the beachside restaurant is irresistible.

Karmen Apartments

In one of the best locations in Dubrovnik right in the Old Town on the harbour, these four excellent-value apartments, overlook the medieval walls. All of the brightly decorated apartments have kitchens, and one has a small balcony.

The Pucić Palace

This luxurious boutique hotel is housed in an 17th-century Baroque house. In summer, staying in one of the hotel’s individually styled rooms gives you free access to a beach club just outside the town's gate. Other facilities include the Café Royal restaurant, fine dining at Defne and a wine bar.

Hotel Excelsior

This 198-room hotel in São Paulo, with its mammoth convention centre, flatters beyond its 4-star billing. The rooms behind Excelsior's art-deco frontage are plain and businesslike, yet excellent value. Wi-Fi is free, rooms come with LCD TVs and there is a bar and fitness centre onsite. The location is also close by downtown Praça da República with nearby cultural icons such as Teatro Municipal and Edificio Copan. Staff speak English and can help book tickets and tours. Breakfast included.

Hotel Neptun

It would be a shame to stay in Dubrovnik without waking up with a sea view. Hotel Neptun has recently been renovated to ensure an unforgettable stay in the Babin Kuk peninsula overlooking Elaphiti Islands. Choose one of the 91 rooms or suites and make the most of Croatian summer.


ZigZag Apartments Dubrovnik

These stylish apartments scattered around the Old Town and priced very reasonably, won’t break your budget. Light, airy, with a plenty of sunshine, you will be close to all the hot sports, restaurants and bars.
