The Island of Lokrum and the Elaphiti Islands
The Island of Lokrum – a nature reserve and botanical gardens – is the perfect choice for an unforgettable day trip. From bathing in the Dead Sea, a mini lake linked with the open sea, sunbathing on the rocks on the outer side of the island, or taking walks in the botanical gardens, to climbing Fort Royal on the island’s peak where you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the open sea and Dubrovnik’s old city centre, your holiday will be filled with incredible experiences. The island can be reached by a short boat ride from the harbour in the old city centre. But don’t forget the old local saying: one must not take anything from the island or spend the night there! Apart from Lokrum, there are plenty of interesting trips to the Elaphiti Islands: Lopud, Koločep and Šipan. Intriguing islands with stunning nature, magnificent beaches, world-class gastronomic offer and hospitable locals guarantee time well spent. Be sure to find out about the day trips on offer for an unforgettable holiday in Dubrovnik.
Trsteno Arboretum and Mljet National Park
Trsteno Arboretum, the place of unique natural and cultural heritage, is situated no more than 15 kilometres from Dubrovnik. Strolling down the charming gardens, you can observe the diverse natural vegetation, forest and greenery, as well as the fountain, aqueducts and the summer house belonging to the Gučetić-Gozze family, who owned the land on which the arboretum was built in 1494. Enjoy the magnificent nature, stroll in the shade of the palm trees and lush greenery and take incredible photos at a unique lookout with a view of the crystal-clear Adriatic Sea and the surrounding islands. Travelling on to the Pelješac peninsula, take the ferry to visit the island of Mljet, one of Croatia’s eight national parks. This island stands out due to its natural beauty, deep forest shade and salt lakes, which are extremely popular with tourists. Explore the lakes by taking a relaxing walk or bicycle ride and stop to swim in beautiful locations and secluded spots. Apart from salt lakes, the island of Mljet features stunning beaches (such as the sandy beach Limuni), the remnants of a Roman palace in the village of Polače, and Odysseus’ Cave, which reflects a beautiful turquoise light at a certain part of the day.
The island of Mljet can be reached by catamaran from Gruž harbour in Dubrovnik, so don’t miss out on visiting this destination during your stay in the south of Croatia. If you still haven’t found a place to stay, it’s time to book one of our last-minute offers in Dubrovnik, start the car or book your flight and visit one of the world’s most beautiful destinations.
