Heading to one of the attractive beaches is the best thing to do during hot summer days in Dubrovnik.

Swimming in the clear and warm sea will surely relax and refresh you. For those who wish more, the beaches of Dubrovnik offer additional options. Rent a pedallo or scooter and visit picturesque coves in the vicinity of the beach, take a banana boat ride, water-ski and windsurf.

If you have a spirit of adventure, take a kayak at Pile at the foot of Fort Lovrjenac. Row to the Island of Lokrum and Bete Cave and admire the view of the stone walls on your way back. You can explore the Dubrovnik sea bed, enjoy the silence and mystery of the depths and visit protected submarine archaeological sites within the special programmes offered by the diving and water sports centres located at some of the Dubrovnik beaches.

To tennis fans Lapad offers tennis courts at Babin Kuk, the Bay of Lapad and Gospino Polje, from where you can take a walk to the nearby Gorica Svetoga Vlaha hill with the little Church of St Blaise. Every year, at the closing of St Blaise Festival the church is visited by a procession of people carrying banners. From the hill you can enjoy magnificent views over the City and open sea.

If you stay at one of the top class hotels at Ploče, do not miss a morning jog or an easy walk to the Sveti Jakov area. At sunset return to your hotel and relax at the wellness centre, have a massage, swim in the swimming pool, or choose one of the beauty treatments.

Climb the Dubrovnik walls. This amazing 2-kilometre long walk offers a memorable view over the city and open sea.

The Lapad promenades by the sea are waiting for you, even in the mild Dubrovnik winter. It is a real pleasure to walk from the Bay of Lapad, head to the Neptune Hotel with a superb view of the rocks and lighthouse, proceed through Babin Kuk to Copacabana Beach and further along the seashore to the Orsan Sailing Club, where you can refresh yourselves with a fruit juice or cup of coffee.

To those in good shape we recommend climbing Mount Srđ, which offers a breathtaking view over the entire city, surrounding area, open sea and islands. Do not miss a visit to the museum at Fort Imperial - the symbol of the city defence during the Croatian War of Independence. To true adventure lovers we recommend a tour of the beautiful Konavle countryside in small ATV vehicles, for which one does not need driving experience. This is where you can try your skill at recreational horseback riding and explore the Konavle area in a different way - taking the 11-kilometre long blue route through olive-groves, woods and along the steep Konavle coast from where you can admire the spectacular view. If you become hungry after all this, do not miss savouring local smoked ham, cheese and wine. Intoxicated with beauty, your body and soul rejuvenated, you will come back to the pleasant atmosphere of your hotel and a relaxing bath at your wellness centre.

Visit the southernmost part of the Croatian coast, the Prevlaka Park. Croatias biggest free climbing centre, the park also offers paintball, biking, adventure-walks and a tour of the labyrinth of tunnels that was once constructed for military purposes. Among other numerous programmes designed to make your active holiday in Dubrovnik unforgettable are big game fishing, fishing by day and night in Cavtat, sailing on rented sailboats, the salt harvest at the Ston Salt Works, a jeep safari in Konavle and bicycle ride through the unique national park on the Island of Mljet.
