  • Better than Banje Beach. 50 kunas per sun bed and per beach umbrella. A regular lunch (meat and fries) cost 280 for a couple (non-alcoholic drinks). The quality of the water is great, but bring your beach shoes cause the rocks get bigger here.
  • Greatest beach in Dubrovnik. Secluded, quiet, with an amazing beach restaurant! Tuna steak is a must.
