Fodor's Expert Review Buža

Dubrovnik Fodor's Choice

Walk through an 800-year-old wall to find a secret swimming spot across the sea from a cursed island. Sounds like a fairy tale, but in Dubrovnik such places actually exist, and there are two of them. One of the Buža (hole-in-the-wall) bars is marked by a wooden sign pointing toward "cold drinks." The other has no signage at all; you just walk through a doorway in the city walls. With tables arranged on a series of terraces built into the rocks and jazzy soundtracks to go along with stunning vistas, both bars make a great place to stop for a drink or a swim; you can jump right off the rocks in front of the bar into the sea.
