Must see · Island · Nature / Park
Swim, marvel at exotic plants, and walk with peacocks at Lokrum Island. Visit the site where, according to legend, King Richard the Lionheart was cast safely ashore after a shipwreck during his return from the crusades. The area was also once a favorite summer retreat of Austrian archduke Maximilian. To get to the island, ride a ferry from the city. Enjoy a dip in the small salt lake, which is 10 m (33ft) deep and known as the Dead Sea. Visit the botanical garden to admire Mediterranean plants, including laurels, oaks, pines, cypresses, olives, agaves, cacti, magnolia, and palms. If you'd like to take a journey back in time, explore the deserted 11th-century Benedictine monastery.

  • Took the first ferry from Old Town and spent a couple of hours on the island. Nice steep hike uphill to the fort with views of Dubrovnik. People were swimming but it was too cold for us. We stayed on....  more »

  • A small paradise island ! Lots of beautiful birds and rabbits! Game of thrones essence! Great small, bigger bays to swim! Best season on October!
  • Restful day at this island, just walking and swimming, sunbathing and watching peacocks and rabbits. Iron throne also there in monastery. Beautiful views, if weather is good, highly recommended.
