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.

Super peaceful and beautiful. Surrounded by peacocks and rabbits. Fell like pure nature untouched by dirty civilization. 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.
