The beaches in Cavtat, Dubrovnik Riviera and Konavle have clean, calm, deliciously warm, turquoise blue waters inviting families and couples to spend long days under the sun. The main beach is on Tiha bay, but there are all kinds of coves in area: for naturists, for kids, by the harbour…
Main beaches in Cavtat:
- Cavtat beach: This quiet beach on Tiha bay, next to the town centre, features the typical landscape of southern Croatia. It is protected from the bustling streets by a line of leafy vegetation and the water is impossibly clean. It is the typical pebble beach with a sand sea bottom that attracts bathers. Ideal for divers and for families.
- Mrkan, Bobara and Supetar coves: The coves in this unspoilt archipelago with lavish Mediterranean vegetation are an oasis for relaxation. Carved into the rocks and only accessible by sea, they are great for anchoring your boat and spend a day in sailor style. Some of them, like Supetar, welcome nudists.
- Sustjepan beach: This nude beach made of rocks in the west of the Sustjepan peninsula is blessed with sunlight all day long. Some areas have been smoothed with cement for sunbathers’ comfort. Facilities include toilets, showers, changing rooms and a restaurant.
- Beaches in Rat peninsula: These three little coves featuring rock, pebble or coarse-grained sand beaches are framed by the beautiful woods spanning most of the peninsula. The cove on the south is next to the marina, offering a full range of services. The one in the north shares the water of Tiha bay. They are all reached via a walkway.
- Plat beach: This pebble beach lies in the southwest of Zupa bay, an inlet into the sea that makes a sort of pool for kids to splash about in a safe environment. The beach is close to a diving club and a pier where Croatia’s famous taxi boats are operated. On the whole, the atmosphere is relaxed. There is a separate nude area.
- Beaches in Dubrovnik Riviera: Copacabana is one of the most popular beaches in Dubrovnik, offering family services and attractions, and stunning views of the remarkable Dubrovnik Bridge. Lokrum is very well known too. Located on Lokrum island (also known as the Island of Kings), it can be reached on one of the tourist boats that regularly depart from the harbour.
- Pasjača beach: To the south of Cavtat, close to the neighbouring municipality of Popovici, Pasjača beach is a paradise accessible from a flight of steps carved into the rock. Those climbing down the cliffs are rewarded with crystal-clear waters and a little sand and pebble cove.
