This is a tiny stretch of partly rocky and partly sandy beach, but it is hard to tell as every square inch is covered with people. The water however is magnificent and the views are beautiful!

It is a nice beach, with a great view out to Lokrum, but it's way too crowded. We managed to get a tiny spot on a couple of rocks, so we didn't stay for long, maybe half an hour. There are lots of other nice beaches in the nearby area, which are not that crowded. The V.I.P area was not... More

This may be the worst beach I've been on. It was way over crowded. The kiosk was expensive (15 kunas for a small bottle of water). The beach wasn't that bad, however it is too crowded to lay down anywhere, unless you arrive at 9 AM. Go to Lokrum instead.

EastWest at Banji beach is very stylish. There are white sun loungers or beds available to hire, waiter service and a VIP area where you can enjoy champagne and cocktails. At night it's a club. By day it's a beach, bar and restaurant. The food is very nice and the loungers are comfortable and plush. There is free WIFI and... More

This is a nice beach to get away from the stream of tourists in Old Town. However, it gets crowded early. If you want a beach chair, it's 100 HRK which isn't too bad. Anything else (umbrella, towel etc) is more. There are also sections on the beach where you don't have to pay. Lots of kids and families, but... More

Great place to chill out if you need a break from the busy streets of Dubrovnik. Water is lovely and there are plenty of loungers to rent. The bar and restaurant are nice if a bit pricey. You pay about 70 Kuna for a cocktail which is qute expensive to other places in Croatia but in keeping with the rest... More

My family spent 3 days at Banje Beach and a lovely relaxing all over body massages whilst lying on our bed. My husband needed it after lugging all our luggage around but now he is feeling great and ready to lug it all back to UK! The lady who massaged us was very friendly, professional and made us feel at... More

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.
