Stunning beach and quiet. We got the bus from Hvar town and soon arrived. The little bar at the far end is a must do and if you like mojitos well...have 2!! Take a parasol and perhaps some food. Oh, and don't trust the return bus timetable. Our bus never came!

Dubovica beach is at the end of a 10 minute rocky walk. There are a few shade trees and it wasn't too crowded. There are no rental chairs. The bay has stunning clear, calm water perfect for swimming. (The water seems more salty than Sydney beaches...)There are about three old stone houses hear including a really rustic looking cafe. This... More

Beautiful beach! You need to hike for 10 minutes to get there but it's an easy hike and the view is amazing!

Fantastic little cove. Gorgeous walk down from the road to get there (shoes advised). Clear blue water once you're there. Actually a beach as well (pebbles) rather than rocks like most places in Croatia, so playing in the sea is easier and more fun. Worth hiring a sun shade, or bring one with you as there isn't much shade to... More

My partner and I rented a car and drive the whole of Hvar. We stopped off at Dubovica around 8am for a morning swim and it's beautiful! It's a 10 minute walk down, it's pretty steep and rocky so make sure to take suitable footwear (Not flip flops) It started to get busy around 10am, seems to be very popular... More

Awesome little beach about 5 minutes walk down from the main road. We took a scooter from Hvar town for the day and spent most of our time on Bubrovica beach. Water was spectacular! Just be prepared for a few bees/wasps flying around looking for their own tanning spot!

Located off the main road just outside the tunnel, parking is informal off the road; definitely a steep hike but worth it for a great swimming bay. There are food and drinks to purchase but not rentals.

We stayed in Hvar for 5 nights and rented a scooter on our first day so we could explore the island. This beach was by far our most favorite and we ended up returning to it everyday. The have bathroom facilities in the little restaurant on the left side (looking inland) and both food and drinks are offered. The restaurant... More

We hired a car and visited 3 of the main beaches on the island Milna, Zarace and Dubovica. This one was the nicest by far. It's a short 10 min car journey from centre of town to Dubovica or you can get a bus there. You can then park your car on the hill top on the side of the... More
