When deciding to visit Dubrovnik and researching hotels etc.. it seemed Lapad was the place to base yourself, as this was where most of the hotels were and only a short bus ride into the old town. Views across to Gruz, the suspension bridge and the cruise ships, walking round the harbour and trying the various bars and restaurants, the... More

Nice avenue of restaurants to be found. Not really over commercialized and a nice place to meet and greet ! Go to the cave bar and watch the sunset. SUPERB !

A pretty harbour town. Plenty of places to eat, drink and party. No beaches to speak of. This is a good place to escape from the touristy madness of Dubrovnik old town. The best way to reach here is by boat excursion from Dubrovnik, but if you're driving then there is a very reasonably priced car park in the centre... More

The best place to stay and hotels and restaurants are a lot cheaper than the old town, but the quality is equally the same. Loverly harbour great to watch the huge cruise ships come and go.

We had booked a Air B&B high on the cliff top overlooking Lapad and the bay with stunning views. The area is full of bars and restaurants albeit that some were already shut for the end of the season but the weather was good and the people very welcoming.

The trip on a boat is short but nice. (The boats are every half an hour) There is nothing really special to see on the island, but if u are into a walk in a park where you can see some rabbits, peacocks and squirrels this is a place for you. You cant see Dubrovnik from that part of the... More

Lapad is a residential suburb of Dubrovnik that lies 3 km north west of the Old Town. Lapad has a green interior due to the pine trees and has attractive sea views, beaches and restaurants used by the locals and visitors alike. It is easy to walk easily everywhere in Lapad since it is compact with many parts of Lapad... More
