“Very beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a lovely place to visit. Only a short boat trip from Dubrovnik harbour (boats are very regular). There are a few cafes which do lovely food. It is nice just to wander around the Island through the Monastery and the Botanical Gardens. The Dead Sea is gorgeous - and worth a swim. It is lovely to find the nice swimming spots around the Island. In the afternoon prior to catching the boat back we had cocktails at the cafe near the dock, and listened to a live guitarist. Lovely.

“Good Day Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I would recommend this island as it is close to Dubrovnik port and only about 15mins away with very regular boats so you can hop on or off as you please and does not take up an entire day if you dont want it to.

There is a nice restaurant on the island which means you dont need to pack and take food with you.

There are various natural pools which are great to sunbathe by and dip into...i would suggest taking a hard sun bathing mat to lie on as it is very rocky and a towel is uncomfortable. I would also suggest taking hand gel as toilets are few and far between and often a queue to get into.

“An amazing island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We've been to Croatia in august 2012. Lokrum is an amazing beautiful island just a few meters away from Dubrovnik. The price of a return ticket was 7.5 euros. We were delighted with this island! I could have stayed there for a long time and didn’t want to come back! I wrote a few posts about croatia on my travel blog. There is also a video, where you can see wonderful landscapes of Lokrum .

“A beautiful un-spoilt island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The island was small, shaded in parts and had peacocks walking around. Our friends got married there and the setting was truly stunning. The waters surrounding the island are crystal clear and perfect for a spot of fishing. The island allows no smoking so that was a plus for the non-smokers. Also an entrance fee I believe has to be covered.
