What we liked about it
here’s just a few ideas….
Do you fancy swimming in the crystal clear warm water of Dubrovnik. Gazing up at the imposing citadel made famous by Game of Thrones. If you do, you’ll love any chance you get to visit Dubrovnik out of high season. Either late Spring or early Autumn offers fewer crowds, cheaper prices, warm seas.
But more importantly, the space to fully enjoy the amazing UNESCO old city without the throngs of crowds. An old city full of small cobbled streets that wind lazily upwards towards the imposing city walls. With a break from the summer heat, there’s plenty to offer families including the Escape Room, City Walls tours & the new Star Wars walk
Still not convinced? Here’s another one:
Outside the old city offers even more choice for families. Sea kayaking to nearby islands or even jumping aboard the affordable ‘yellow submarine’ to see the marine wildlife between Dubrovnik and Lokrum Island. An island made famous by it’s tame rabbits and peacocks. The perfect place to spend a lazy day or grab a family adventure should you choose to brave the island’s Dead Sea. A salt filled lake that allows you to float in peace or explore at your leisure. It’s a fantastic area to explore too, just take a peek around the harbour to grab views of the Adriatic coastline that you’ll remember forever!!…
