Beaches in Dubrovnik
Except for its historical heritage, Dubrovnik is also a good place for summer holidays in terms of sea, sun and beach .There are several nice beaches around the town one can enjoy. However in Dubrovnik, as anywhere else on Croatian Adriatic, one can swim and sunbath almost everywhere along the coast.
But, lets say, if you really want to go for beach in Dubrovnik, the most popular and centrally located is Dubrovnik's Banje Beach.
Beside beaches located within the town of Dubrovnik (see some listing bellow) there is a host of attractive beach resorts which are within easy reach of Dubrovnik.
From the Gruz, Dubrovnik's main ferry terminal, there are regular crossings to the largely unspoiled Elaphite archipelago, whose three main islands of Kolocep (Kalamota), Lopud and Sipan all offer tranquility and nice pebble beaches.
