Hotels in Dubrovnik


The island of Lokrum is Dubrovnik’s off shore sub-tropical nature reserve. It is only a 15 minute boat ride away from the old town port. A network of footpaths criss-crosses the island and provides access to the sea. There are several rock beaches (including naturist beaches), which provide excellent break from the crowds onshore.

In the middle of the island there is an old botanical garden and ruins of a large Benedictine monastery.

On the summit of the island there is a ruined French fort built in 1806 that provides a great view over the Dubrovnik’s old city and walls.
