A wild-at-heart Croatian hotspot

Sun kissed villages with charming terracotta-topped houses surrounded by olive groves and pine forests, lapped by the shimmering Adriatic Sea – the Dubrovnik Riviera is phenomenally pretty. The stone ramparts of Dubrovnik’s famous city walls are often visible in the distance, while the verdant delta of the Neretva river is also in sight, and imposing mountains strewn with maquis shrubs surround much of the coastline. It’s a nature lover’s dream.

Dubrovnik Riviera holidays really do offer some of the finest scenery in the Mediterranean. And that’s before even mentioning its pristine, undeveloped beaches and coves, or the sun-dappled vineyards and olive groves of the wider Zupa Dubrovacka area – where foodies will enjoy sampling the locally produced wine and olive oil at charming restaurants. So whether it’s spectacular natural scenery or next-level beaches you’re after, holidays to the Dubrovnik Riviera have got it covered.

Your Dubrovnik Riviera questions, answered

In Croatia, more specifically, the Dubrovnik Riviera stretches south along the coast between Dubrovnik and Cavtat for around 20 kilometres, and is officially known as the Zupa Dubrovacka area.

The extraordinary scenery and year-round sun mean it’s always a great time to visit. Temperatures are at their warmest from May to September, while winters are mild.

For the freedom to explore the entire coastline, it’s worth renting a car (or using taxis). There are also regular buses that make the journey to Dubrovnik city.

Best things to do in Dubrovnik Riviera

Find a hidden cove

The area is especially well-known for its beautiful, unspoiled beaches and out-of-the-way, rocky coves. For the ultimate relaxing experience, seek out your own secluded spot of sand.

Go sea kayaking

Sea kayaking tours take in the Riviera, then glide towards Dubrovnik’s Old Town in time for sunset. It’s one of the most thrilling ways to explore the coastline.

Rent a boat

Make the most of the water and get out and about by boat. Rent your own and you can hop off at coves or swim around little islands as you please.
