dubrovnik old town

Dubrovnik: The ‘pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik is the must-see place to visit whilst in Croatia. The old town, a UNESCO world heritage site, celebrated for its outstanding cultural and historical heritage boasts entire streets and buildings perfectly preserved to create an awe-inspiring Roman environment. Walk the city walls for excellent views of the Old Town and the Adriatic or perhaps ascend Mound Srd by cable car for more awe-inspiring views. It’s easy to get to Dubrovnik from Mlini with buses every half an hour until late at night. For more information on Dubrovnik, click here.


mljet national park

Mljet National Park: A highly recommended day trip, this large area includes two azure salt lakes, surrounded by pine forest. It’s a great place to explore by foot, bicycle and kayak. The waters are also very warm and clear, so having a dip is also highly recommended. To get here there’s a daily catamaran that leaves Dubrovnik’s Gruz port every morning between May and September and leaves again in late afternoon, making Mljet an ideal day trip. Outside these months we recommend visiting using an organised excursion. Entrance fee is payable on arrival.



Cavtat: A great place to explore, grab some lunch and relax, Cavtat offers visitors fantastic seafront restaurants and cafes, pine forests and calm waters. Only a twenty minute bus journey from Mlini, or a 30 minute water taxi, it’s a great place for an afternoon away. For more information of Cavtat click here.



Elaphiti Islands (Lopud, Sipan & Kolocep): These delightful islands between 20 minutes and an hour from Dubrovnik offers a great island hopping day trip. If a sandy beach is what you’re after, head for Sunj Beach on Lopud Island where a wide horse-shoe bay awaits. Sipan island is a tranquil haven and great for walking and exploring. Kolocep is the closest island and offers pretty beach coves and pine covered hills. Ferries from Dubrovnik Gruz port head to these islands up to 5 times in the summer and only costs around £2.50 each way. More info on Lopud and Sipan can be found here.
