Banje Beach

Banje Beach in Dubrovnik

With beautiful views over Dubrovnik Old Town and Lokrum Island, Banje Beach is located in front of the eastern entrance to Dubrovnik Old Town (Ploče Gate), situated on the seashore of hotels Excelsior and Argentina. The beach has its reception, restaurant and sleek and minimalist cafe bar on the waterfront with often snobbish clientele. You can rent your deck chair and parasol, jet ski, speed boat, and god knows what else – it keeps changing from summer to summer. Banje is well known among visitors to the town so it can be very crowded in the summer seasons.

Type of Beach: pebble; Recommended for: families, water-sports, relaxing, views

Getting to Banje Beach

  • From the Old Town – walk out from the walled town through Ploce Gate and continue walking towards the East for another few hundred meters where on your right side you will notice wide stairs leading down to the beach. From Stradun it takes about 5 minutes to walk to reach Banje beach.
  • From Boninovo / Lapad / Babin Kuk – take bus no 4 or 6 to Pile gate, walk down to Old Town, cross the Stradun and exit the town through Ploce Gate, few more minutes of walking and you are there.
  • From Gruž – you can take any bus to the Old town and walk from there to the beach (as above), however, if you would like to avoid the crowd on Stradun, take bus No 8 or No 5 from Gruž, get off at Ploce and your beach is just 2 minutes walk down the steps from there.
