The Sand and the Sea
When you think of Dubrovnik, two colours come to mind: that of reddish sand shimmering on the roofs and walls of the Croatian city. And the colour of bright blue water that bubbles on the cliffs off Dubrovnik, but also serenely lingers in the bays nearby. The city, whose old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just unimaginable without the Adriatic Sea. For one, there is the massive city wall built in the 16th century that encloses Dubrovnik and separates the land from the sea. You also get a whole new perspective when snorkelling in the crystal-clear water or from a kayak, speedboat or canoe.
Out and about with a Kayak
If you want to steer a boat yourself (no licence required), you can explore the islands, caves and bays off Dubrovnik by kayak. Half-day or all-day guided kayak tours offer new views into historic city fortresses, far away from the crowds of tourists. You’ll discover bays that are only accessible on the water. The unspoilt, uninhabited island of Lokrum is also only a few hundred metres away from the mainland and can be reached by paddling. Be sure to cover your head – the Adriatic Sea is cool, even in the summer, but the sun burns all the more intensely.
