Beaches in Dubrovnik
The more upmarket hotels, such as the Excelsior and Villa Dubrovnik, have their own beaches that are exclusively for the use of hotel guests. The most natural and peaceful beaches lie on the tiny island of Lokrum, a short distance south of the Old Town. Through high season boats leave from the Old Harbor, ferrying visitors back and forth from morning to early evening. Boats run every half hour from 9 am to 7:30 pm. Roundtrip tickets cost 50 Kn. It used to be possible to take a sea-kayaking trip to Lokrum, but these have now been suspended due to the number of motorboats in the sea channel. However, sea kayaking trips are still possible elsewhere in the vicinity of Dubrovnik.
