This was my favorite beach of my cruise. It was a drizzly day, but I was determined to still go and I'm glad I did. The views from the water and beach were lovely. I stayed on the free side, put my towel down and enjoyed it. Remember you need to wear water shoes because it isn't a sand beach.

A fab place to relax after dinner with a drink. Great music and wonderful views across the sea. Lots of people enjoyed the beautiful beach and bar during the day but we liked it best after dinner on our walk back from the old town.

The beach is quite crowded, but the water is crystal clear and the beach is less rocky than others. Because there is a beach club, you are expected to pay for all the facilities there which is not great. Would recommend going to this beach if you don't mind crowds, it is a pleasant place to swim and sunbathe.

One of the best places for swimming, sun bathing,enjoying the sports on the sea and the restaurant is good. Night parties are organised all through summer.

The Banje beach is close to the harbour of the city and small so it will get busy. Half of it is Beach Club so expect to pay top whack for drinks,beds and facilities - they charge for everything - their showers, toilets the lot! We decided against that! The beach was a bit grubby by 1st November when we... More

Sunbeds are a little pricey but the beach is clean, the sea is crystal clear and the view is gorgeous.

The location of this place is spot on but I'm afraid the attitude of the majority of the staff is plain indifference or general rudeness. After paying 200 kuna for a beach bed we were generally ignored. Yuri, the beach boy in charge of all things lounge and shade, was asked 5 times for an umbrella but just kept saying,... More

We, a group of 3 were on my way round from Split to Montenegro and stopped off in Dubrovnik for 3 days. One of the days was spent on east west beach. It was very hot day and service was quite slow which could do with speeding up but saying that, there was only 2 waiters (who were also hot!!)... More

The only redeeming factor about this beach is its location. It has stunning views of the city walls. My praise ends here. The loungers are the most expensive I've ever come across (€26 for 2 squashed together loungers on a dirty beach!!). The staff (and please note, this beach club doubles as one of the most expensive bars in town)... More

The title says it all. I mean...if i spent 200 euros on 2 cubas, some cevapcici and beer, let me piss for free, no, we had to pay the latrin kunas. The waiter was nice, no argue on him. There was no music, no dj, no nothing. It was sortof lame. Only the beach beds and the baldachin stood out,... More
