Lokrum's gardens and beaches
If you weren’t already envious of the locals in Dubrovnik, beautiful Lokrum Island will do the trick. Who wouldn’t want this verdant playground of vivacious gardens, wooded hills and swimmable shores a few minutes sail from them? Moored a kilometre off Dubrovnik, Lokrum is pretty much the ideal day trip, as much defined by what it lacks as by the beauty it possesses: no houses or hotels, no stores or souvenir shops. Just the Adriatic’s bright sun and clear blue waters, a few trails to explore, and even a little lake to splash in. Perfect.
