The Sun and the Sea
If you explored all the interesting sights in the Old City, we recommend exploring the area around Dubrovnik. One of the most popular places are Elafiti islands: Kolocep Lopud and Sipan, Lokrum island, Konavle region as well as Ston, Peljesac peninsula and Zupa Dubrovacka. You can rent a private sailing boat that can take you to hidden bays and also show you a taste of Elafiti islands while sailing. The best-known Croatian wine (such as Plavac Mali) is growing on Peljesac peninsula. You can take a private guide or book a wine tasting tour and enjoy a variety of local wines and also recently discovered truffles. In Konavle you have popular things to do like horse-back riding, biking, have fun adrenalin park and much more. Thanks to its geographical position, Dubrovnik offers international one-day excursions to Bay of Kotor(Montenegro), a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, a visit to Mostar and a visit to Vjetrenica Cave (named after the cold winds that blow from its entrance).
Dubrovnik has a rich gastronomic offer, but we recommend traditional local cuisine which starts with fresh, locally grown vegetables and lots of olive oil. You should definitely try some of the local fish specialities in some of the many city taverns and restaurants. We recommend Konoba Sesame, located near Villa Anica and Konoba Stara Mlinica, located on the island of Sipan (get there is best with sailboat).
