This is really one of the most beautiful beaches in Dubrovnik, with beautiful view on the island of Lokrum. It is not sandy and not peacful if you're looking for that type of vacation, but it's long and it has a lot of facilities. Avoid if you have stroller, or not in good condition; there is a lot of stairs... More

This was the most beautiful beach in Dubrovnik (not that there are many). It has a very nice view from the old town, Lokrum island and surroundings. We went there by car. You follow the road "ulica Frana Supila" and directly after you pass Hotel Argentina (direction from old town to the beach) you take the road to the right... More

This place is so beautiful.. A local gem hidden away from tourists. It is beautiful. Beach side cocktails, music, fresh food, cool water and views of old town. This is the sort of beach I was looking for when I came to croatia!

We walked from the old town of Dubrovnik to Sveti Jakov beach. The walk is absolutely charming. The villas you see on the way are equisite. The stairs going down to the beach are plentiful, and once you get down, you will be forever greatful you saw the view and revelled in the clear, blue waters because that will sustain... More

This beach was a short 5min walk from our apartment and visited here twice during our week with our son. Difficult to find but make sure you walk to the end of the road, behind the church, and then take the set of steps on the right down to the beach. Visited mid May and was very quiet with works...

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
