Day trips from Dubrovnik
There are a lot of day tours from Dubrovnik for you to select from, should you ever get tired of the town. Regardless if you're exploring Dubrovnik for just couple of days or much longer, you will most likely prefer to incorporate a day tour to a few of the fantastic locations in the neighboring region. As a result of its geographical locality, Dubrovnik is a really great spot from which to uncover South Dalmatia and its islands, small towns and Montenegro.
The island of Lokrum
Lokrum is among the simplest day tours to make if you're in Dubrovnik - if you're there, you'll see yourself how near the Lokrum is. It's an perfect location for a day tour, particularly so when the tourists in Dubrovnik become just a little too much. The trip takes 15 mins. Covered in pine forests, the island is a perfect location to spend a peaceful afternoon in sunbathing and diving. There are additionally a couple of attractions on the island if you don't prefer to be completely unoccupied. There are different tracks via the island if you prefer to walk through the greenery, and there's a arboretum at the center of the island and the leftovers of a abbey close by also.
The Peljesac Peninsula
This slim peninsula is the home of a variety of little towns and villages in its rough surroundings. The biggest is Orebic that is located at the northern side (and from where you can get some of the ferryboats that links Orebic with the island of Korcula) or Veliki and Mali Ston which are at the base as you "go into" the Peljesac peninsula. There are everyday buses from Dubrovnik to Orebic which stop in Ston; if you have your personal automobile, then a journey to the Peljesac is actually much more worth it as it's excellent for uncovering at your own speed.
The Elaphiti Islands
The Elaphiti Islands are a little group of islands to the north of Dubrovnik, with the main 3, the islands that are populated, being Sipan, Lopud and Kolocep. Any one of the 3 larger Elaphiti islands are a enjoyable day journey, with little settlements, beaches and a couple of architectural attractions. Each also has a couple of coffee bars and taverns for eating possibilities. Sipan is the biggest of the 3, even though all are fairly peaceful with just a small human population.
Take a kayaking tour
There are a lot of concealed bays, small isles and hidden coves off Dubrovnik's shoreline that getting a kayak out to discover is truly the only way of discovering the tinier, more private locations. Tons of them are gathered closely enough to navigate simply between, but do not take that to mean that a half-day kayaking trip is a relaxing day. Despite the calmest of sea, this is some tough workout, particularly if you're going to in the height of summer season. Nevertheless, lots of providers mix the kayaking with other programs, so you can navigate your way to great swimming locations, a village lunch or a wine and cheese tasting program.
The Island of Mljet
Mljet is a wonderfully peaceful, unaffected island, and truly worth a journey even though it's somewhat far away than the alternatives discussed above. The best idea is to rent bicycles to bike all over Mljet, not only is it among the simplest ways of navigating, yet as the island is so tranquil it's awesome entertaining biking around! Most of the island is covered with dense woods, and western side of the island is a National Park.
