Dubrovnik Holidays

Dubrovnik
Overview

Sun, sea, city, fun: holidays in Dubrovnik offer you two amazing holidays in one! This beautiful enclave has all the glitz and buzz of a city break but with beaches just a few steps away. Built on the glittering shores of the Adriatic, its ancient walls are packed with mouth-watering restaurants, cool bars and colourful boutiques. Enjoy the shopping, cocktails and clubs of the city or hop on a boat to explore the sun-drenched islands that lie just off the coast.

 

Surely one of the most picturesque cities in Europe, Dubrovnik's historic fort sits right on the waterfront and the azure Adriatic is framed from every window. The beaches are a hive of activity during spring, summer and early autumn, while the historic old town is cosy and even more atmospheric during the winter. Marvel looking at it massive walls, built during the 16th century or potter about the limestone-paved Placa known for its laidback vibe. Home to some of the best restaurants in Croatia and a thriving bar scene, Dubrovnik is the perfect place for magnificent meals and cocktails with spectacular sea views.

 

Relax with a beer at a cliff-side café or walk the castle walls for panoramic views of the city. Dubrovnik holidays will appeal to the old soul as well as the free-spirited holidaymaker. Dubrovnik also ranks high as a top gay-friendly destination in the Mediterranean, and with a salubrious 22-27°C in June, is a great choice to spend the summer.

Explore more of the stunning Croatian coastline by taking to the Adriatic waters. See the spellbinding walled city from seaward and take one of the local ferries out to a neighbouring island. If you fancy a spot of proper island-hopping, board a boat and take a tour of the Elaphiti Islands where you'll venture through Kolocep's Blue Caves, soak up the rays on Sunj beach and stop at beautiful Sipan. For those looking for a fun day out there is also the popular pirate ship The Galleon Tirena or glass-bottomed boats that cruise from Dubrovnik on day trips.

Stroll in the Old Town

Stroll in the Old Town


The cobbled streets of Dubrovnik's Old Town (dubbed the 'Pearl of the Adriatic') are full of character and this atmospheric part of town is steeped in history. Wander the narrow lanes, watch the world go by from one of the tiny bar terraces and marvel at the great ancient architecture, baroque buildings and clustered houses. As you enter through Pile City Gate you'll see the Minceta Fort. Stroll through Stradun for shops, galleries, cafés and bars, and if it's a Saturday head down to the market and pick up some local brandy, aromatherapy oils and Mediterranean spices. During the evening make the most of the Mediterranean cuisine at one of the Old Town's many eateries.

Chill on the Cliffs

Chill on the Cliffs


Dubrovnik's unique bar terraces are a must. Built on ledges, into the rocks and within the ancient buildings, the city's bars and restaurants are mesmerising. It's easy to miss, but the ‘hole-in-the-wall’ Buza bar is one of the most beautiful in the city. Tucked away in the cliffs above the sea, this café and bar offers incomparable views out over the Adriatic. Take a seat at a table on the rocky ledges and soak up your surroundings. During the summer the bar sometimes projects films onto the cliffside for a cinema experience like no other!
