Boninovo

Boninovo –  Dubrovnik’s central suburb, close to Pile and Old Town. It is the area well known for its cliffs which offer really nice views over the sea as well as over Lapad, Gorica and Danče. Local cemetery is also located here (Boninovo cemetery) as well as very popular summer, open-air cinema ‘Slavica’ (ljetno kino Slavica) where locals like to hang around its fantastic terrace/bar..

You will find several popular hotels here as well as plenty of privately owned rooms and apartments to rent.

The main road that connects Lapad and Gruž with Pile and the Old Town passes by here as well as majority of public transport, so the area can be pretty busy in the high season. Nevertheless, this stretch of the coast offers great views especially when Šiloko wind blows and waves are really B I G  🙂

Views over the sea from Boninovo

I like this area because of its lovely views – above photo shows views from the road towards the South – uninterrupted views all the way to Italy  🙂

Cliffs around here  are very high and can be dangerous so never walk close to the edges.
