Went here after reading lots of reviews and had a nice day. In order to get here you need to leave your car on the side of the road and go down a steep slope for some 2-300m before reaching the beach. You can find a small terrace there with the minimum required to keep you fresh. The beach is... More

Too crowded! Like really no place to walk at 10am already! I understand the place is very pretty, but for me it's not worth it! There are beautiful little beaches along the coast with half the people, way more enjoyable! I would say ho here only if not in high-season!

Lovely beach, not as busy as the main beaches because you need a car to get there. Great little shack on the beach where you can rent umbrellas and get a coffee or a homemade lemonade.

As per other reviews Dubovica is beautiful & refreshing, especially if you find Hvar a little busy & touristy which is how we felt. We had 2-3 days in Hvar we hired a car went to Dubovica and then drove to Stari Grad which i would highly recommend visiting. I really loved Stari Grad (the centre of town) not as... More

Pretty beach, but not sure I subscribe to the breathless descriptions of this being the "best beach in Hvar". It has the typical pebble beach, though Dubovica has nice smooth pebbles as opposed to the sharp rocks of other Croatian beaches I have seen. The good thing (or bad, depending on what you want) is that there are none of... More

We took a scooter from Hvar to get here as I would say it's a little far to walk there and back. Head along the main road out of Hvar towards Stari Grad, just before you get to the tunnel and the road turns inland, you will see parking and a sign showing you have arrived at Dubovica. Wear some... More

DIRECTIONS Since everybody likes to blab about how nice the beach is I'll skip that and try and write up some more detailed directions to this beach. It is pretty easy to get there but I found it hard to find detailed directions on this thread. 1. You will need to rent a scooter or car from Hvar. Here is... More

A fantastic beach! Clear, blue water. Lovely cafe/restaurant (we only had drinks). Maybe wear something else than flip-flops when going down to the beach, as my friend found a little difficult. Not sure if I wanted to review this beach of fear that more people would travel there....

When we came to Hvar we really hoped to see some great beaches as any island should have. In the city of hvar there are no such beaches, but with the help of trippadvisor we found Dubovica and it didnt disapoint at all. You have to park the car on the main street and you have to walk for around... More
