We really liked the walking town of Cavtat. Its only about a half hour from the City of Dubrovnik or the airport. You walk everywhere here. Nice little shops and excellent smaller restaurants are along the waterfront. Its a peaceful quiet place to spend a few days of your vacation and in the off season hotel rooms and apartments are...

My friends and I took the short taxi ride to Cavtat while awaiting our flight from Dubrovnik to Rome. A sidewalk along the sea, sidewalk cafes and children swimming in the sea. You can just walk from your cafe table, steps to the sea. Next time I go to Croatia I will stay HERE after roaming the streets of Dubrovnik!

Myself & my partner stayed in Cavtat in 2011. I left a review on the apartment we stayed in. We fell in love with Cavtat from the moment we arrived. It is still a place we speak of. I hope to return there again and find it as magical as we did first time around. It has such a lovely... More

Cavtat is easy to walk round and feels very safe. There are plenty of resturants and shops but it doesn't feel crowded. Walking through the harbour is great seeing the different boats watching the water polo , looking in different chapels. Walking through the back streets to going up through the woods brings different views and architecture. From the old... More

It is a very interesting place, with very different old history compared to places like Dublin. The streets and cobblestones take you back. The hotel was up high so you had to walk when it was very hot but there were always early mornings or the night time to walk. We found a restaurant that we liked down by the... More

During our long weekend in Dubrovnik we caught the local bus to Cavtat, a picturesque hour's drive along the coast. Cavtat, although small, has a good selection of restaurants/cafes and bars and the old town and harbour oozes atmosphere. Luxury yachts line the harbour drawing envious stares, and a walk around the promontory gives lovely views across the water to... More
