Sveti Jakov Beach

Within a stone’s throw of Dubrovnik’s Old Town a the beautiful bay which is home to Sveti Jakov Beach. Beyond the translucent sapphire waters are views to Dubrovnik’s Old Town itself. This makes it a great spot for escaping the crowds and basking in the afternoon sun after a day’s sightseeing in the city.

More local sites include the historic Sv. Jakov Church, which sits atop a large cliff with a long staircase descending right down to the beach. Once you reach the beach, you’ll be able to take in its many different areas. Some are light, soft, and sandy, while others feature firmer pebble and rock patches and pathways.

The cliffside overlooks Lokrum island, while the beach is host to a bar, water sports, a beach volleyball court, and so much more.

Whether you want to kick back and relax or do a bit of exploring in Dubrovnik, Sveti Jakov Beach is sure to please.
