10 Best Beaches in Dubrovnik

Danče Beach

This is the first beach we will look at. It is 10 minutes from the old town on foot. Known for being one of the most authentic beaches in the area, this offers an excellent place for water-based activities, but it’s not that sandy! It’s a little stoney and not ideal for weak swimmers to swim in the waters here.

Pasjača Beach

This beach is a hidden gem! You have to walk around a cliff face to find it, but it’s completely worth it. People are always so impressed with what they see, both in terms of the beautiful views and the quiet serenity which is present here.

There are beaches, places to sit and enjoy yourself, as well as plenty of chances to get some grub.
