Cavtat is a very nice compact place to stay. The main harbour area is full of very good restaurants and bars, great for an evening drink and people watching.
We have never been to a holiday destination with so few shops. (a plus in my opinion)
There was one supermarket, pharmacy and chemist and a few souvenirs shops. One bakery/coffee bar and a few ice cream shops.
The bus station is centrally located and takes you to Dubrovnik (about ½ hour and costs approx £2.50 each way). There are also plenty of small boats costing a little more and taking between 45 and 60 mins. We booked our boat through Delfin Tours situated near the bus station. We got a better price here than some of the sellers around the harbour. Michael the owner and his wife are very nice and full of knowledge. Michael will always negotiate his prices up to a point so go to him last and get the best deal. We also booked a coach trip with him to Montenegro which was cheaper than the tour operator’s for exactly the same trip. Again his 3 island boat trip was cheaper and followed the same route. Both trips were good value for money and a nice day out.
We would have liked to do the Ronald Brown Pathway walk but were advised against it by the girl in the Tourist Info office as it was very hot at the time of our stay and the walk afforded no shade at all. We did however manage to walk to the Airport to visit the Sky Cellar, an underground cave beneath the runway. The walk is mainly along a way marked path to Cilipi but when you get to Mocici, you have to leave the walk and find the main road, to the Airport. We got a little lost at this point and had to ask a local in the village of Mocici. A nice walk, a bit rough in parts (good footwear needed). We were in walking sandles). The walk took us about 2 hours each way.
