Dubrovnik Riviera

Stunning scenery

Take in the natural beauty, history and culture of the Dubrovnik Riviera which stretches approximately 20km along the coast between Dubrovnik and Cavtat. This is a place bursting with lush greenery, historic sites and interesting towns. The coast is filled with seaside towns and villages, surrounded by verdant forests and leading to pretty harbours and well-kept beaches and the islands of Lopud and Sipan provide a pleasant retreat from the mainland.

The Old Town of Dubrovnik offers much for holidaymakers with it’s marble-paved streets, ancient monuments and the best preserved medieval walled city in the Mediterranean. You will feel as though you have stepped back in time when you follow the 13th Century city walls which allow great views over the shimmering Adriatic Sea below.

Cavtat enjoys a slower pace than Dubrovnik which can get very crowded, especially when cruise ships are visiting. Cavtat is located on a wood-filled peninsula and has a delightful seaside promenade, a scenic harbour, cobbled streets, a fortress, museum and several churches.

Mlini is one of the largest and most developed resorts located midway between Dubrovnik and Cavtat. With stunning beaches, clear natural springs and good boat links to surrounding islands, it’s a big hit with holidaymakers.

Orasac and Plat are both perfect for those seeking a peaceful destination. Srebreno is also a quiet sanctuary with a pebble and shingle beach plus plenty of walking and hiking paths that are threaded throughout the pine forests.
