Croatia is home to some of the most naturally beautiful beaches in Europe but Banje Beach also offers a perfect backdrop of historic splendour.
The beach is located on the edge of Dubrovnik’s Old Town alongside the 17th century Lazareti and Ploce Gate. To visit this area is to take a trip back hundreds of years and see what Eastern European life was like centuries ago.
As for the beach itself, the shoreline is made up of small round pebbles which give the sea a brilliant blue-green hue. Adding to the visual appeals of Banje Beach is the vibrant beach scene. There are plenty of parasols and beach lounge chairs available for those fast enough to claim them, while beach sports are a way of life here. The same goes for water sports such as water skiing, wakeboarding, and parasailing.
Banje Beach is also home to a healthy sailing culture with kayaks and banana boats available for rent.
As the sun sets, you can grab a cocktail at one of the many great bars across the beach. And for a taste of old class and new beach fun, Banje Beach is a perfect example of all that’s great about Croatian beach culture.
