Lapad Bay and providing spectacular views of the Adriatic
and the nearby islands, just 6km from Dubrovnik. One of
Dubrovnik's most popular beaches, share its name with the
legendary beach in Rio de Janeiro. There must some sort
of obsession with Rio in Croatia, because this is not the
only Copacabana beach in Croatia. Even Osijek, city in northeast
Croatia, has a river beach and recreational center also
named after Copacabana. But let's go back to Dubrovnk's
It's a long shingle beach with possibility of renting sun
umbrellas and deck chairs. There you can enjoy different
water sport activities: waterpolo, water-skiing, surfing,
banana ride, canoes, pedaling etc. Parachute ride is exceptionally
popular as you can catch the whole panorama of this magnificent
part of Dubrovnik. For children there are sea slide chutes
on the beach and the grown ups can rest in a beach bar or
a beach restaurant. The beach also hosts windsurfing regattas
and Dubrovnik's local waterpolo teams matches.
Right on the beach there is a diving center, fruit and ice-cream
stands, coffee bar and a beach restaurant. In the immediate
vicinity there are several hotels,
Argosy, Minceta, President, Tirena.
If you are not a fan of crowds, hustle and bustle, the Babin
Kuk area have many other spots & secluded areas for a swim.
In one of them, Cava beach, you can freely cast away all
of your clothes.
