Croatia's best family friendly beaches


Lapad Beach

Lapad beachLapad beach (or Uvala Lapad meaning Lapad Bay) is the largest beach in Dubrovnik and is located in Lapad bay, very close to the Lapad walking Zone and in the near vicinity of several hotels, many restaurants, cafe bars, tennis courts, children playgrounds. Lapad peninsula is regarded as one of the most beautiful parts of Dubrovnik. Many pebble and rocky beaches, car-free areas, nice walking paths along the sea, cafe bars and restaurants, make it a great accommodation choice for guests coming to Dubrovnik.
On the Lapad beach there is a restaurant and two cafe bars. The beach is equipped with showers and changing cabins, sun umbrellas and deck chairs. The swimming area is supervised by life guards and is protected from boats and water bikes.
This is one of the sandy beaches where you can spend a day enjoying natural tree shade.
Most of the hotels that are located at the Lapad bay have private beaches which are partly open to the public, Adriatic, Vis, Splendid, Libertas and Bellevue south of Lapad main beach and Neptun to the north.
Adriatic is a small and romantic beach made of concrete. A bit further there is a Vis pebbly beach with beach restaurant and a coffee bar. There are often beach and cocktail parties organized. Vis beach offers sea kayaks to rent which is a great way to explore all Lapad area beaches. After Vis comes Splendid beach, a small pebbly beach surrounded by cliffs. A good place for those who want to escape crowds. Next is Vila beach. This is an attractive sandy beach especially popular among young people who play Picigin in shallow water. Picigin is a group game played usually in knee deep water with a small fist sized ball. The goal is to keep the ball from falling into the water.
Next to Vila another rocky/concrete beach is situated with jet ski rental.
Neptun beach, north of Lapad's main sandy beach, is a pretty rocky beach with all amenities that comes with a hotel, like deck chairs rental, two pools, beach restaurant and cafe bar etc. You can find your own isolated spot on the beach there and feel as if there is no one around. And for all of you romantic souls, this beach is a perfect sunset watching place.
