Cavtat – A Small Charming Seaside Town

Avoid road traffic jams, choose a boat ride from Dubrovnik to Cavtat

Once in Dubrovnik, you will probably want to visit fascinating nearby destinations besides, in addition to exploring everything the city offers. Seeing Cavtat is an excellent idea for a day trip from Dubrovnik. Our suggestion is to make the trip by boat, of course. Why spend time in the road traffic jam when you can get there quickly with a boat ride? Enjoy the sea breeze, cold drinks, and mesmerising views.

Located around 20 km south of Dubrovnik and 22 km from Montenegro’s border, Cavtat boasts clean sea, sandy beaches, beautiful bays, and rich cultural heritage. This ancient town with a thousand-year history used to be called Epidaurus. Legend has it Epidaurus was a predecessor of Dubrovnik. After the total destruction of the settlement in the 7th century, people moved and eventually founded Dubrovnik.

Today in Cavtat, you will find many well-preserved reminders of the glorious past: the Franciscan monastery, the Church of Our Lady of CavtatSt. Nicholas’ church, fortifications, city walls, squares, palaces, and much more.
