This is a beach just 20 minutes walk from the old city of Dubrovnik, hidden behind the old church in Sveti Jakov. You can also come by car but there are not many parking places and it is very expensive 40 HRK per hour so you have to take it in consider when choosing this possibility. the third possibility is...

Beautiful beach with crystal clear water but bring beach shoes due to the rocks. Excellent restaurant on site with reasonable prices and great service. See you next year!

This beach is about a mile walk from Old Town and worth the trek to avoid Banje. Down many, many stairs, this is a quiet beach, not nearly as crowded at Banje. Prices are much less (chair rental 35 kuna while at Banje - 100 kune). You cannot rent towels here so bring your own. We had a nice lunch... More

If you are in Dubrovnik you should go on this beach. Dubrovnik is not so well known about his beaches, but this is pleasant surprise!

Beach is wonderfull and you have the option to swim to a nearby blue cave, right next to Villa Dubrovnik Hotel, it beautiful there. From here is the best view on the whole old city of... More

My partner and I visited this beach instead of Banje beach as it appeared to be a nicer area and a lot less busy (not as close to the old town). It really was lovely - plenty of sunbeds and a nearby restaurant too. However it is a very rocky beach so I'd highly recommend bringing sea shoes. There's also... More

86 stairs down from the street is a paradise you must not miss. Crystal clear waters, sand and an indiscribable view of the Old Town.

Less crowded en more beautifull then Banje Beach. Small restaurant for food and some drinks, don't expect to much of that. Really love this place for a swim and a nice view at the old town of Dubrovnik!
