We were told to go here rather than go to the beaches near the old town. Walking is a bit of a trek especially in 40 degree heat but it was worth it. It is one of the quieter beaches. Water is very clear. There is a restaurant which sell average food which is fine for a spot of lunch.... More

The beach is clean, the water is clean, the toilets are free and clean, the sun loungers are not broken and the umbrellas are not ripped and rusting. The beach staff are excellent and most of all you don't have to listen to the tacky, pulsating music that is played all day at Banje Beach. It is a long walk... More

We got there kind of early and were surprised by the lack of people. That didn't last for long though, since small boats are coming with loads and loads of passengers from the cruising ships outside the city. Half the deck chairs were reserved for people from the cruises. In the afternoon the beach was crowded and you could barely... More

we did the 3km walk from our apartment to this beach as we found banje very crowded, well worth it, lovely much quieter beach and clear blue sea to swim in, if you do walk there take lots of water!

We spent the afternoon here. It was quite a long walk from Dubrovnik Old Town. We took the higher road which was our mistake as it added 15 mins to our walk. Even so, it was worth every step. There are lots of steps down to the beach. It was less busy than Banje beach and much more classy. There's... More

This was one of our favourite beaches during our holiday to Dubrovnik. We took the wrong route when we first attempted to walk here however. When the road forks near the 'Grand Villa Argentina' after walking out of Old Town, make sure to go right (the lower road). For some reason we went left and ended up far above the... More

Went to escape the crowds on Buja beach, it's definitely worth the half hour walk! The beach may be down 160 odd steps but it well worth it. The beach was quiet, with reasonably priced sunbeds and parasols (90 kn for 2 beds and a parasol). The main thing - it's peaceful and relatively quiet. There is also a really... More

The beach is a nice 30 min walk from the old town, which was totally ok for us. You can apparently also take the bus number 5 there. It's located behind the old church, and YES, there are stairs, like EVERYWHERE in Dubrovnik. If you can't handle stairs, don't come here, period. The beach itself was stony, pebbly and hard... More

This was our main beach during our visit. Beach and water/bottom was clean. During peak hours the beach got very crowded since it is very small beach. The restaurant had very nice view and good food. If you want to do snorkeling you have to go right by the cliff by the boats and beyond the safety line protecting swimmers... More

I enjoyed the walk and the steps, though if you've got kids this could be an issue. The views were the best thing about the beach. Water was crystal clear as you would expect and the stones whilst rounded so not sharp did make the entry to the water rather comical with the loss of footing. The beach has a... More
