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.
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.
