I visited in September 2018, and booked a small hotel in the easterly bay of Cavtat. I spent five out of my seven days in Croatia exploring Cavtat at leisure, alongside two day trips to the nearby city of Dubrovnik and the bordering country of Montenegro.
The turquoise waves crashing onto pebble beaches, the Old Town complete with a harbour full of million-pound yachts, and the endless beauty that overlooks the adriatic sea makes Cavtat such a beautiful spot to spend a week or two.
Let me show you around in my Cavtat photo diary!

Beachside beauty in Cavtat:
Have you ever seen a more perfect, tranquil spot to pull up a sun lounger?
The flowers were blooming, the impressive mountainous landscape allows you to completely switch off from reality, and the gorgeous colour of the ocean made for such a welcoming invitation to cool off in the searing summer heat.
Boats of Cavtat:
So I mentioned the pricey boats – and I wasn’t kidding! There are many yachts that line the bays around Cavtat, but most huddle in the main harbour, where the rich and famous can hop off their floating summer escapes for a seafront dinner on balmy evenings.
You never know who you might brush shoulders with here, so keep an eye out…
Staying in Cavtat:
We booked a TUI resort called Hotel Remisens Epidaurus. It wasn’t breathtaking, but it was a pleasant enough stay. What sold it were the balcony views out to sea, and the short walk over over to Cavtat Old Town.
Wonders of Cavtat Old Town:
And of course, the Old Town itself is what draws tourists to this part of Southern Dalmatia. Close to the airport, a short bus ride from Dubrovnik and lined with exquisite restaurants and beautiful hotels – Cavtat is a dreamy destination if you’re looking to set foot into a new part of europe.
