One of Dubrovnik's most popular seaside attractions, Sveti Jakov Beach sits on a little bay below a small church. Located near the Old Town, the pebbly beach provides an ideal setting for a leisurely rest with a good book. Adventurous water buffs can explore the coastline by kayak or visit the nearby cave where scientist Rudjer Boskovic performed his experiments with optics. You can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas right on the beach, and get a cold drink and a snack at one of the nearby bars.

  • Beautiful and quiet pebble beach. Quite a few steps down from the car park but we’ll worth it. A small restaurant and bar on the beach. If you want something more peaceful try going along the coast away from the city. You can either make your way through the abandoned hotel or follow the road as far as you can before making your way down the steps and to an area with great swimming and jumping possibilities.
  • Lovely pebble beach less than 10 min ride from Dubrovnik. You climb down a set of stairs but it’s so worth it! The water is crystal clear and so clean. There’s even a restaurant and a bar (who accept credit cards!). To rent an Umbrella + 2 sun beds: 210 krunas.
