We visited this beach in very late October on trip advisor recommendation. Quite a walk from the city. We are fast walkers it took 25 mins. The steps down are steep, not in good condition and many! No good unless fit. Very nice small beach with only two other people on it. Today lots of litter and dead leaves and... More

Great out of the way beach. Very European, combination of nudist and beach goers from the old town. Its a way from town but worth a days journey. coming from Florida we enjoyed the sandy beach and the clear water. This is a typical Med. beach, rocky but not treturous. Had a great day with a nice picnic lunch, worth... More

We had fun on this beach, it's away from the main crowd of the old town, the waters were very clear and the beach is clean. It was a pebble beach rather than a sandy beach and whilst most reviews say it would be great to bring sea shoes, it's not neccessary. The rocks into the sea are a little... More

A little hard to find, but worth it just to get away from the crowds. The view looking back into Dubrovnik is pretty great. Not sure if it officially a nudist beach but a couple women were topless.

We went on a mini hike to find this beach after reading about it on here. A lot further than I thought. A nice beach, yes, but getting into the water is no easy task with those stones. Too large to walk on but not large enough to step on one at a time, with the waves too, that was... More

This tiny beach in a cove of clear blue water is Dubrovnik's best kept secret! Sun beds and loungers can be rented. The road is tricky to find. Just past the main beach and Hotel Argentina, take a sharp right down a narrow road which leads to the Monastery where there is parking. Then walk down steep steps to the... More

We walked down to this beach after we were charged nearly £25 for two sun beds on banje beach. Don't bother it was a nice walk took about 25 mins but lots of steps down (and up) the beach is quite small, very stoned and pebbly. No beach beds and no beach bar or cafe so no where at all... More

We stayed in Old Town and walked to this beach. It took us about 30 minutes to walk there from our apartment. There are 165 stairs down to the beach. When we visited, the beach was not very busy. We rented 2 chairs and an umbrella for 90 Kuna (12 EUR). The staff also gave us two clean towels that... More

This is a great little relaxing beach to swim at. Deck chairs with umbrellas 90 kuna. It's pebbles so invest in some Crocs, Havianas were a bit of a pain. We stayed at the Excelsior, this beach is about a 1.5 km easy walk heading away from old town from the hotel. Then down some steps behind the church. Nice... More

I mean it! It took us 1/2 hour to walk there in the baking heat only to find a very cramped tiny beach. The staff on the beach weren't interested in serving us, they wanted to keep their spare sun loungers for the cruise brigade. There's not really much in the way of sand there. It's quite rocky and you... More
