About Cavtat

Nestled between mountains, the quiet harbour town of Cavtat is a perfect summer hideaway. Red-tiled villas dot the picturesque hillside leading to a charming old town in the centre that's best explored on foot. Restaurants and cafes overlooking pebbled beaches line the picture-perfect waterfront promenade. Head up the hill to see the Mausoleum of the Racic Family, visit St. Nicholas' church and explore the Franciscan Monastery. The two peninsulas are ideal for walks in the shade of pine trees and for relishing expansive views of the Adriatic. On a summery Sunday, venture further along the coastal road to Cilipi where folk dancers entertain visitors.

The town’s wealth of water sports promises thrills for active holidaymakers. Enjoy swimming, paddle-boating, kayaking and water biking.
