There was one really good restaurant and it was nice to walk around there. For me it felt like there were too many tourists and it didn't really have locals' life in it. Beaches were nice and I enjoyed swimming there. But make sure you also visit Dubrovnik because you can't really compare the places.

The colour of the stone and roofs. Pavement cafes. Small cobbled backstreets. Flowers everywhere. Good food, good local wine and such friendly people.

Cavtat (pronounced 'Tsvav - tat') is a town just down the coast from Dubrovnik. You can reach it via a small boat from Dubrovnik old harbour, which takes about an hour - there are plenty of touts selling tickets. The town itself is small and doesn't take long to look round. There are some restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops. But... More

Cavtat, Croatia was reminiscent of what the French Riviera looked like prior to tourism taking over. The old town was quaint and clean with tree lined streets and side walk cafes which offered exquisite views of the marina/harbor and azure blue sea of the Adriatic. This is a town well worth visiting and staying if you are fortunate enough to... More

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
