A day or afternoon spent on Lokrum Island is a perfect compliment to a visit to Dubrovnik, especially when the Old town gets hot and busy!
EASY! A short 15 minute ferry hop to paradise! Boats depart frequently from the Old Town Harbour.

SECRET BEACH DAY TRIP PIKNIK
self guided day of adventure - full day trip
A great start to your day is a relaxing boat trip south, to the village of Cavtat. This is only the beginning of your adventure. Hop in a taxi that will take you for a quick drive through the pretty villages of Konavle valley to the trailhead. You will wind your way down a breathtaking trail and through a cave to a spectacular beach! Undeniably one of the best swim spots in the region. Pop up your sun umbrella we lend you, cool off in the sea, and enjoy your piknik. Your taxi will come retrieve you at your predetermined time. On your return, we suggest you enjoy what Cavtat has to offer - funky beach bars under the pines, the charming atelier of Croatian painter Vlaho Bukovac, and the historical cemetery on the hill with a mausoleum designed by Croatia's most famous sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. If you are enjoying it so much that you miss your last boat back to Dubrovnik, there are always taxis and local buses that will take you home. See us for details on this great day you won't forget. Note - not much shade on the beach so July - August take note, perhaps better for later in the day. Tip, rent a car and drive yourself, good option too.
Incredible views of Dubrovnik - unforgettable sunset experiences
The cable car takes you up to the top of Srd hill for a fantastic bird's eye view of the Old Town, Lokrum and the Elaphite islands stretching out below. Option to walk up/down as well - for the ambitious!
Map provided with piknik.

Lopud Island boasts a sandy beach, and Sipan is our favourite for really feeling like you are experiencing Dalmatian island life.

"Now to the meal itself. We got out our menu and wow it was fabulous! There were lots of little boxes and it was great to open them up to reveal their delicious contents. The tiffin box was so great! A lovely touch. Everything was fresh and a great deal of thought had gone into the ingredients.. so you felt at least you were getting real local food. Truly perfect".
"Everything was wonderful. The highlights for me were (1) the pork tenderloin with the delicious cheese, fig jam and pear slices: and (2) the fresh pressed olive oil - I never tasted anything like that!.. and (2) the variety of different foods you provided that allowed us to enjoy so many different foods (and drinks)."
