Visiting in January, its difficult to know how enjoyable this beach might be. However, the area is clean and much new housing is nearby. We think the locals prefer this beach 'in season' because its not as crowded as the tourist areas.

Be aware that many of the croatian beaches have no sand, but are very stony and you could cut your feet if not careful. Lapad beach however has a few places to eat all around it. A nice place to go for a swim for sure.

Our friend recommend us staying here while being in Dubrovnik and I am glad we did. Old city is mostly stairs everywhere, not to mention crowds and noises that comes with it. Here you have peaceful place with ocean front, amazing place to sunset watch. And if you seek more adventure they have jet ski and other great toys around.... More

We took a scenic walk around the Lapad Peninsula from our hotel, The Berkeley, in Gruz during a long weekend in Dubrovnik. It was simple to follow the pathway around the harbour as far as the Orsan Yacht Club, then cut inland across to Lapad Beach. The path then narrowed and followed the coastline around the headland and back to... More

The walk around the sea shore at Lapad was a terrific adventure and well worth the exercise. Just bus 6 from Old Town and find the trail and follow the signs

This is a nice clean apartment in the Lapad area of Dubrovnik. It's on the steep hill with a nice view. The owner Diana is very hospitable lady and she will tell you everything about the area, stores nearby and taxis and buses. We had a car and even though it's on a steep hill we have not used while...

Stayed in the area we wander all over. There is a great selection of bars/restuarants to choose from. One of the best is the 'Cave Bar' which is located about 100 yards along the path to the right side of the bay. Ideal and safe for swimming pebble and sand beach and rock shelves along the bay sides.

Beautiful sea. Great swimming. Not a sandy beach but if you are a sun worshipper and don't mid lying on the concrete or rocks in between swims you'll enjoy.
