Dubrovnik is one of the most popular destinations in Croatia for couples. The old city itself offers visitors plenty of historic attractions and fun things to do, while the smaller towns and villages on the Dubrovnik Riviera make a charming backdrop for long romantic walks along the beach, with plenty of quiet, secluded corners and locations that give couples an opportunity to relax and reconnect.
The Dubrovnik Riviera and the nearby islands offer an endless variety of scenic and historic places to explore, sand and pebble beaches to enjoy the Mediterranean sun and sunsets over the Adriatic, and many vantage points for taking stunning pictures of the local scenery and cityscapes. Lokrum island, the islands of Korčula and Mljet, and the Elaphiti archipelago make wonderful destinations for short sailing trips from Dubrovnik, while the city of Split, the towns of Cavtat and Mostar, the Pelješac peninsula, and the Montenegrin coast offer plenty of variety for romantic day trips to the surrounding region.
Travellers can also take kayaking and snorkelling excursions from Dubrovnik and explore the local islands, sea caves, and the underwater world.
Meanwhile, the quiet, picturesque towns of Mlini and Srebreno offer an idyllic getaway for those looking to spend their day relaxing on a beach, surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation, and exploring the rich local traditions and cuisine in the evening.
Romantic weekends in Dubrovnik
Couples staying in Dubrovnik for only a couple of days can cover a lot of ground in the old city, as most of the main attractions are all within walking distance of each other. The city walls and Mount Srđ offer breathtaking views of the Old Town, while the historic core itself houses countless cultural landmarks, old churches and palaces, museums and galleries, secluded romantic corners, pubs, wine bars and restaurants with panoramic terraces, that make even short trips memorable.
