I lived in a Hotel within Lapad, the area was very nice, Area had a beach and a street with bars, shops and restaurants without car access.Buses ran around this area to give you access to the old town.

It's a nice island for half or a whole day. Very easy to get to by boat (every half an hour from old harbour). The rocks are very hard to lie on. Need reef shoes to get in and out of the water easily. There are loungers for a small fee. Plenty of shade. The restaurant was ok and decent... More

Quite nice for a break from walking round the town, and gives great views back from the boat. However, its worth taking swimming things as one of the main attractions is being able to swim from secluded spots around the island or in the small lake. There is not much else to do, other than walking round the island itself... More

Loved the Lapad area. Lots of hotels, restaurants, beautiful beaches. Lovely walkway from the beach along the seaside. Had nice dinner there in the evenings, lots of things to do for people with small children as well.

This is a lovely place to stay with easy access to the old town. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants and the bay is very pretty.

Away from the tourist trap at the old city you can find Lapad. The more quiet and relaxing area where there are plenty of opertunities to walk around and have a look. We lived at Hotel Lapad and it was 20 minutes walk from the beach and 5-15 minutes from decent places to eat.

If you don't want to be in the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik's Old Town, Lapad is great as it is quieter but still has plenty of restaurants, bars, cafe's and beaches to enjoy. There is always a relaxed, friendly air about the place. It's a charming and stunning destination, and only 10 mins bus ride to the Old Town... More

It is a very beautiful beach with places the stay, eat and have fun. There are activities for younger children as well as adults. Lots of choices from fancy restaurants to fast food to eat. Nice cafes on the cliff with sea view. Easy to travel from the old town and easy to hire a sunbed and umbrella. The sea... More

I think Lapad makes a good holiday destination in its own right. There is an excellent bus service to the Old Town, it is walking distance to the harbour and there is a very good walkway right round the peninsula. plenty of activities for children and prices for meals and coffees etc. tend to be cheaper than Old Town.

We have just returned from Lapad, lovely area, much quieter than the Old Town but worth staying here as it is easy to get to Old Town, but nice to return to quieter bars and restaurants
