• I spent a couple of days in Dubrovnik at the end of my trip in Croatia and with WMGT so I wanted to write up 5 recommendations of things you should do when you visit Dubrovnik. There is so much there that you can do which I ran out of time to do but I would recommend these things. Dubrovnik is a gorgeous city filled with history, terracotta roofs and wonderful people. It’s very clean and filled with so much yummy food.

    WALK THE WALLS OF DUBROVNIK
    You can purchase your ticket to do this in the ticket office on the left hand side of Pile Gate, tickets cost 150 kuna and the entrance to the walk is on the right hand side of the Pile Gate which isn’t far from the ticket office. They scan your ticket at the beginning and half way round the walk to stop people joining in who don’t have a ticket. We did our walk in the morning as soon as it opened so it wasn’t the hottest temperature of the day but it was still quite hot for the morning and wasn’t as busy as if you would do it at mid-day. It took us roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes to walk the whole thing including going up the tower viewpoints as well.

    SUNSET KAYAKING AROUND THE WALLS
    We did this little excursion before sunset, setting out in pairs on kayaks and paddling around the Walls of Dubrovnik. Mollie had music playing from her speakers and also handed out bags of popcorn and chocolate wafers for us to eat whilst watching the sunset. We also had a little history lesson by our guide who told us all about the war between Dubrovnik and Bosnia and also a few locations pointed out that were filmed in Game of Thrones.

    WATCH THE SUNSET AT DANČE BEACH
    The last few members of the group all hung out on the last day before having our final meal. We had heard of a good spot on Danče Beach to watch the sunset. It was a short walk outside of the city walls and down a few steps to a beach the locals use. We sat down on the flat surface there and watched the sunset with the town lights twinkling behind us and in front of us. We then headed out to find a good place to eat as we were all starving, we all managed to devour some burgers and fries.

    SPEND THE DAY ON LOKRUM ISLAND
    On our final full day together and after walking the Walls of Dubrovnik, the last few of the group bought tickets to visit Lokrum Island which is a beautiful nature reserve on the island that’s a 15 minute ferry from Dubrovnik harbor that costs 150 kuna return to get there and back. It has many different spots on the island you can visit including places to eat and drink. We spent the day chilling in the sun and swimming in the sea whilst enjoying the day together before saying our goodbyes. It’s definitely a great place to visit if you just want to relax and spend the day in the sun.
