Banje Beach is the most famous beach in Dubrovnik – it is located right next to the historical old town, so while you’re swimming, you can enjoy the most beautiful view of the city walls, the island Lokrum, as well as the old harbor. And if you want to cool off, you can always grab a cocktail in the Banje-Beach Restaurant, located just a few steps from the beach.
