the incomparably unpolluted and clear sea that washes the shore and islands of the Dubrovnik area.
Heterogeneousness and diversity are the main features of the beaches in Dubrovnik and its surroundings, so that every visitor can find the one that suits him best… shallow sandy and pebble beaches for families with children, romantic and sheltered coves, fashionable beaches with the most up-to-date facilities, night parties and sports programmes and quiet little bays and rocks for lovers of diving.
According to the opinion pool on http://www.trivago.co.uk, Dubrovnik was included in the top five most beautiful Mediterranean beaches, among the 50 most popular European beaches competing.
With the exception of several sandy beaches, the beaches in the Dubrovnik area are either pebbly or rocky. The most popular sandy beach in the vicinity of Dubrovnik is the Šunj beach on the Island of Lopud. The Dubrovnik ACI Marina and many hotel beaches in Dubrovnik are marked with the Blue Flag, the most valuable ecological sign of unpolluted sea and beach, and of well-equipped and maintained beaches and marinas. A naturist beach is situated on the Isle of Lokrum, also called the island of love, which has many sheltered coves and places for lovers. The Copacabana beach is equipped with an elevator for disabled persons providing easy access to the sea.
The Banje, Uvala Lapad and Copacabana beaches offer numerous entertaining and sports programmes throughout the day and until the late night hours.
One can reach our beaches by boat, car or on foot. This is where you can rest, relax, run away from the stresses of every-day life, enjoy the crystal clear sea and listen to the song of cicadas in the crowns of pine-trees. However, the moment you reach some of the hidden little beaches, it becomes your exclusive place of oblivion.
