The Sun and the Sea
Discover some of the most beautiful and unpolluted beaches near Dubrovnik. The popular Banje Beach, located in front of the Old City with stunning views of the harbor, is just a 10-minute walk from Villa Anica. Families with children will enjoy the family-friendly Copacabana Beach, located on the Lapad peninsula. For a unique experience, head to the stunning sandy beach of Sunj on the island of Lopud, which can only be reached by private sailing boat, available for rent HERE.
Explore beyond the Old City and discover the breathtaking natural beauty of the Dubrovnik area. Visit the stunning Elafiti islands of Kolocep, Lopud, and Sipan, as well as the Lokrum island, Konavle region, Ston, Peljesac peninsula, and Zupa Dubrovacka. Rent a private sailing boat to discover hidden bays and get a taste of the Elafiti islands while sailing. Peljesac peninsula is home to the best-known Croatian wines, such as Plavac Mali. Hire a private guide or book a wine tasting tour and enjoy a variety of local wines and recently discovered truffles. In Konavle, enjoy popular activities such as horseback riding, biking, and adrenaline parks. Thanks to its strategic location, Dubrovnik also offers international one-day excursions to the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro, pilgrimage tours to Medjugorje, visits to Mostar, and trips to Vjetrenica Cave (named after the cold winds that blow from its entrance).
Dubrovnik’s gastronomic scene is rich and diverse, but we highly recommend trying out the traditional local cuisine, which focuses on using fresh, locally grown vegetables and olive oil. Don’t miss the chance to savor some of the local fish specialties at one of the many taverns and restaurants in the city. For a truly authentic experience, we recommend dining at Konoba Sesame, located near Villa Anica, or Konoba Stara Mlinica, situated on the beautiful island of Sipan (accessible by sailboat).
You have several good places to go out, but two most popular are Culture Club Revelin and Sky Bar. There are many bars and pubs in Old Town located alongside the main street Stradun, such as Irish Pub, Karaka, Cele, La Bodega and many more.
