We stayed in Lapad for 6 nights, and I would encourage anyone staying in the Dubrovnik area to do the same if you are staying more than 2 nights. It's a 5 to 10 minute bus ride... read more

We stayed in Lapad for 6 nights, and I would encourage anyone staying in the Dubrovnik area to do the same if you are staying more than 2 nights. It's a 5 to 10 minute bus ride from Lapad to Dubrovnik's Pile Gate on the #6 bus at 12 Kunar each. You can then fight the tourist and cruise line... More

So fake we didn't stay here and booked an apartment near the old town. Thought it was pretty much a dump, walked through and got the first bus back into Dubrovnik! There are some beautiful villas aside the promenade but can't imagine coming here and spending a week in the height of the summer. Reminded me of a run down... More

We went to Croatia some years ago (prior to 2014). However, the hotel we reserved, near Dubrovnik, summarily closed the week before we were to arrive. So we contacted the airline, whose tour department we used, about the emergency problem. They responded quickly and got us into a hotel just a day before we departed for Croatia. What is the...

It is a district filled with coffee shops and restaurants with a nice walking trail where you walk just a few meters from the sea surrounded with trees and luxurious villas on the other side.

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
