So I thought it would be good to explain where we are staying while in Dubrovnik. The apartment is called House Pile and the address is: Svetog Đurđa 16, Dubrovnik, Hrvatska The apartment is literally a stone’s throw from the Adriatic and a two minute walk to the Old City gate entrance.
We swim nearly everyday at a local (fairly secluded) beach called the Bay of Kolačine which is about a five minute walk and is perfect for the kids. The cove, stone-covered beach offers shallow water, a shower to rinse off, and enough shade or sun depending upon your preference. We are also protected with the walls of Fort Lovrjenac (or Lovrijenac) which also provides a nice backdrop.
It really is an ideal vacation spot especially for relaxing.
