Sveti Jakov is a wonderful little beach - about a 25 min walk from the Old Town (or a quick uber ride). The water is the typically beautiful crystal clear sea, and the beach is pebbly. Beach shoes are strongly recommended. It trumps other beaches...More

This beach is certainly walkable from Old Town. However, if you are driving, navigate to Sveti Jakov church. There is plenty of metered parking (40 Kuna per hour) there at the church. In order to make it down to the beach, round the back of...More

Great little beach on the outskirts of Dubrovnik. If travelling by Uber set your destination as the chapel behind the beach that will get you much closer to the steps down to the beach.

This beach is quite the walk from the Old Town so i'd suggest taking a taxi or something if you're not a great walker. If you love the beach then it's worth coming as the sunbed hire is a lot cheaper than any other beach...More

The beach itself was clean, and had staff on hand to help. The views of Dubrovnik was second to none. This beach was a lot quieter than banks beach. I could look at the views for hours!

The Dubrovnik villa hotel and the president hotel are both very good. However they are usually fully booked.
