If you’re looking to spend your honeymoon in Dubrovnik, Croatia, you’ve come to the right place. Not only do we know how to source the best honeymoon deals direct from hotel owners, but we’ve got you covered with these Dubrovnik honeymoon ideas to make sure every day is filled with all the beauty and adventure that Croatia has to offer.
Known for it’s scenic views and crystal-clear waters, visiting Dubrovnik is akin to stepping into another world– you won’t believe the beauty that this city has to offer until you see it with your own eyes. While this isn’t a destination for those averse to water-based activities, there are plenty of things to do on your Dubrovnik honeymoon to cover almost everyone’s interests.
Take A Swim in the Ocean
It would be hard to spend a week or two in this fantastic city without going for a quick dip in the stunning blue waters surrounding Dubrovnik. Even the many bars and restaurants are often attached to a stretch of water – all of which is clearly marked out for your safety – inviting you for a swim along the coastline between rounds.
Walk the Walls of the Old Town
Allowing for stunning views of the open seas and towering mountains, the walls of Old Town will take around an hour to complete but will leave you with memories that last a lifetime. Be aware that this isn’t an easy walk by any means – especially as you’ll need to walk up some considerably steep stairs before reaching the walls themselves. We recommend getting there early to beat the crowds – who usually start to pack the place at around mid-day.
Sit on the Iron Throne
Arguably one of the most popular attractions, as seen by the many Game of Thrones walking tours given in the city. These can become incredibly crowded during the peak seasons and you’ll want to keep an eye on the flag your tour guide will be holding throughout but can offer some great insights into the series, if you’re a big GoT fan. Of course, if you’re more interested in simply getting the moment on camera, we can wholeheartedly recommend skipping the tours and heading straight to Lokrum Island. As well as being home to the Benedictine Monastery and the University’s Botanical Garden, you can find another Iron Throne for your album!
Have a Fish Picnic
Taking up a full day (from around 09:00 to 18:00), this trip allows you to visit three of the Elafiti Islands and gives you a choice of dinner from chicken, vegetarian and – not surprisingly – fish. The tour kicks off from either Gruz or Dubrovnik, although you can occasionally catch the boat from Zaton, before heading off to the islands where you’ll get free time to explore, swim or drink.
Don’t worry if you aren’t in one of the nearby honeymoon style hotels, as these guys will often throw in free transfers to the local port. You’ll also see plenty of advertising for these across the city and various tourist centres, so there shouldn’t be any worries about buying your tickets. Just be sure to get back to the boat ahead of time, as the Croatians are very prompt with their timing and no register is taken to make sure you’re on board.
Hire a Boat
If you aren’t keen on sticking to the activities of others with your Dubrovnik honeymoon itinerary, then you may prefer to hire your own boat for a tour of the islands. In doing this, you can hop from island to island at your own leisure, stopping for a swim whenever and wherever you see fit.
If you want the freedom of having your own boat but aren’t entirely secure in your seafaring capabilities, you always have the option of renting a boat with or without a skipper, to best suit your needs. Prices can vary depending on the boat you hire and any extras such as snorkelling gear or extra fuel being included.
Ride the Cable Car
If you fancy seeing the city of Dubrovnik from the best view available, take a trip up Mount Srd with the Dubrovnik Cable Car. While the trip itself is only short – around 5 minutes each way – we can assure you, the views are second to none. For an added “wow factor”, be sure to head up just before sunset, so you can see the golden views at the most romantic time of day while enjoying dinner at the Panorama Restaurant.
Visit the Cave Bar
If you’re looking for a bar with a difference, we can wholeheartedly recommend the More Cave Bar. Built into the cliffside, with a private swimming area and topped with a 5-star hotel and restaurant to match, this bar offers a unique take on an evening cocktail.
Take a dip in the sea between drinks (highly recommend as, during busy periods, the service is known to be a little slower than others in the area) and check out the stalactites before indulging in large portions of delicious food and silky-smooth drinks. Don’t forget to bring your camera, as you’ll be sure to find plenty of Kodak moments, here.
