Luxury Dubrovnik Riviera Holidays

Rugged coastline and historic towns

Dubrovnik Riviera

The Dubrovnik Riviera stretches along Croatia's southern tip, and lines up a mix of ancient sites, lively towns and pin-drop peaceful islands. The city of Dubrovnik is the jewel in the Riviera’s crown. Its UNESCO-listed Old Town is a maze of marble-paved streets and centuries-old buildings, all enclosed by chunky medieval walls. These huge walls are wide enough to be walked along – from the top, you can enjoy some of the best views across the city.

Head along the coast and you'll reach quaint seaside towns and villages tucked away in the hills. Our favourite? The picturesque village of Orasac, with its traditional Croatian houses, stone churches and sprinkling of pine-backed pebble beaches. Offshore, meanwhile, islands like Kolocep and Lopud make fantastic day trips, thanks to their pristine beaches and postcard-pretty harbours. Take a ferry over or hire a boat of your own and flit between whichever ones you fancy.

Some of my favourite spots were the city bars that cling to the coast’s cliff edges. The terracotta rooftops, Adriatic Sea and sunset make the ultimate photo opportunity, so don’t forget your camera.

While you're here, I'd recommend one of the 'three island' day trips, visiting Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan.

Destinations in Dubrovnik Riviera
Dubrovnik
Gilded churches, maritime museums, marble streets and cliffside bars – Dubrovnik isn’t the most-visited city in Croatia for nothing. Cathedral-quiet islands and pine-backed beaches lie just outside the ancient city walls.
Orasac
Orasac settles just north of Dubrovnik. The 11th-century village centre retreats inland, while the hotels and villas creep towards the coast, where pine-backed beaches overlook the Elaphiti Islands.
Flight Information

Flights from the UK to the Dubrovnik Riviera take around 2 hours 45 minutes.

When to go

July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit, as crowds are smaller but the weather still tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).

Tipping

Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 15 kuna or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
