Dubrovnik's relaxed, quiet neighbor.
Cavtat is about as low-key as it gets on the Dalmatian coast while still retaining an air of exclusivity. The town dates back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. There are billionaire's yachts moored in the marina, decent restaurants lining the seafront, a church, a rector's palace, and that's about it. A popular last night stop if you're worried about making it to Dubrovnik's airport in time (it's just 10 minutes away, practically at the end of the runway).
Route for Cavtat tour
And if you're looking for a base from which to visit Dubrovnik (without actually staying there, especially in the summer when crowds and traffic are at their peak), or explore the surrounding Konavle countryside (with its traditional family farms), or to nip into neighboring Montenegro, Cavtat is just right.

What I love about Cavtat


Team Leader for France, Benelux & Switzerland

Cavtat is a small, charming town with a lot of character. If I want to feel some romance and harmony, I drive to Cavtat. Slow walks by the sea around the small peninsula are relaxing as can be, and each time there I feel reborn. There is no rush while in Cavtat, and what I like the best, apart from exploring numerous authentic sites (like the hilltop Racic mausoleum, the house of the famous painter Vlaho Bukovac, Baltazar Bogisic's library, and Franciscan monastery) are unusually long coffee breaks with the fresh smell of the sea and salt in the air. Cavtat is a real gem of the Croatian South!
