If you consider visiting Dubrovnik in September, we say – go for it! Why? There is no more huge crowds running around Dubrovnik, the weather is not to hot (it’s just perfect) and the sea is still warm. You need ideas for perfect September holidays in Dubrovnik? Keep reading… 

1.) Go for a swim!

Yes, September in Dubrovnik is still perfect for swimming. Find your perfect beach, or go for the most popular one – Banje, just a few minutes walk from the Ploče Gate. It’s perfect for families, there are showers, deckchairs, and fun stuff like jet skis and inflatables. If you don’t mind a 20-minute walk head for Sveti Jakov beach, a favourite local’s beach. The sun stays up until late in the evening, and this beautiful beach is rarely crowded. However, there’s a long stairway you’ll hate on your way up.

2.) Visit Lokrum Island

We already wrote about Lokrum, but it would be a sin not to mention it a few more times. It has everything you would want from an island. Beautiful nature (there is a wonderful botanic garden too!) , amazing beaches, a playground, jumping rocks, peacocks and little bunnies running around. Oh, and it’s never too crowded and the sea is always clean. You think it sounds too good to be true? Think again.

3.) Go for an ice-cream!
