Destinations / Croatia / Dubrovnik Riviera / Cavtat
Located on the gorgeous Adriatic Coast, the little resort of Cavtat actually has a long history. Founded by the Greeks in the 6th century BC, its original name was Epidaurus and it is one of the oldest settlements in the region. Now, because of its beauty, it is one of the most famous tourist towns in the area. Croatia holidays often include Cavtat as one of the main destinations as the resort is tailor made for peace and quiet, heady with the redolent scent of pine trees and romantically renowned for magnificent sunsets over the Adriatic.
Well situated just 15 km south of beautiful Dubrovnik and the little neighbouring resort of Lapad, the resort is well known for its lovely sandy beach, good restaurants and wide range of bars and local shops. Cocooned in clusters of pine trees, the sheltered bay is totally in harmony with nature. Lovely wooded walks are a feature of the Dalmatian Coast and the area around Cavtat is no exception.
Lots of little boat trips can be organised from Cavtat and, with a coastline so rich in secret coves, hidden inlets and idyllic islands lush with foliage, it is highly recommended to explore and discover these gems which dot the landscape and populate the Adriatic. So holidays to Croatia are extremely versatile and do not rely on just the marvellous sunshine!
There are no flights to Cavtat, but regular flights to Dubrovnik from Ireland ensure the accessibility of the resort. Subjects to to Dubrovnik and Cavtat are available to book online.
