Green Babin Kuk
The Babin Kuk peninsula is located in the immediate vicinity of the old part of Dubrovnik. Every year it is visited by thousands of tourists attracted by a wide range of active leisure opportunities. It is also liked by those who just want to relax in one of the greenest areas near the city considered to be the most visited resort in Croatia. Non-motorized people can move freely between the peninsula and the rest of Dubrovnik thanks to public transport or rent a car from one of the agencies.
Rest on Copacabana Beach
Babin Kuk is located on the northern tip of the Lapad Peninsula, approx. 4 km from the historic center of Dubrovnik, which is completely inscribed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List. It is intersected by many bicycle paths and promenades - it is a place created for long walks and practicing various types of sports, from sweating on a bicycle to water sports (swimming, windsurfing, water skiing, banana rides, canoeing etc.). Babin Kuk is also a great place for families with children and the elderly. Tourists who spend their holidays in Dubrovnik are impressed by the beauty of Copacabana Beach, the longest beach in the city. It is a pebble beach with shallow, perfectly clear water. Beach-goers can rent a deckchair or an umbrella, there are also beach volleyball courts and two cafes. Disabled people can also count on all kinds of amenities. Copacabana is very liked by the little ones, who are waiting for, among others, slide. The beach provides great views of the nearby islets - tourists resting on deckchairs can relax and enjoy the beautiful landscapes. Those who want to see as much as possible can take advantage of the paragliding option.
Visiting the most popular Croatian resort
The aforementioned islets, which can be seen from the beach, attract the attention of nature lovers, people who want to calm down in a beautiful environment and get to know the local flora (and fauna). Most of the rocks, reefs and islets surrounding Dubrovnik belong to the Elaphite Archipelago , named after the deer that lived there in the past ("elaphos" in Greek means "deer"). We get to the islands thanks to frequent ferries. The first one, Kolocep, invites you to sandy beaches - Dun Djivan and Donje Celo. Lopud tempts with its 800-meter long beach in Šunj Bay, from which you can walk along a beautiful promenade to the village bearing the same name as the island. Šipan is the largest and the richest at the same time, and its inhabitants are very cordial and hospitable. During your stay, discover the taste of wine produced in local vineyards. Jakljan and Olip are not inhabited. You can walk for hours along the paths crossing the islands of the archipelago - the smell of the ubiquitous pines and the sight of the azure water washing the shores are wonderfully relaxing.
