Lokrum Island, Dubrovnik

The Basics

Just 10 minutes by boat from Dubrovnik, Lokrum Island is an easy day trip from Croatia’s Adriatic Coast. While some visitors take the ferry from Dubrovnik’s Old Harbour and explore the island independently, others go as part of guided tours. Sea kayaking and snorkeling tours often circle the island, as do jet-skiing tours. Yacht and speedboat cruises departing from Dubrovnik will often sail around the island’s scenic shoreline.

Wonderful sea kayak tour

Dubrovnik and Lokrum island sea kayak tour(small group)
Drajan led a wonderful kayak tour from Banje Beach to the nearby locations of the Old City, Lokrum Island, and Bettina Cave. The pace was a perfect mix of paddling and sight seeing. Boats and equipment were great. Enjoyed our co-travelers too from all over the world. Don’t hesitate to book.

Drazen and Ivo were great guides and the trip was well organized but relaxed. The kayaks were new and everything went perfectly. The scenery was spectacular and we had two nice swims, with everything at a leisurely pace.

This is a great introduction to the city, you will see pretty much all of the main sites. Davor was such a great guide, and took the time to make the tour special with fun photos and videos. One note, you CAN pay for the lokrum ferry with credit card despite what the description says. The ticket stand has a machine.

Memorable Day, perfect sunset

Catamaran Sailing to the Mystic Legend of Lokrum Island
My Partner and I had the most wonderful and memorable day on board Seagull 30. Even in the current climate we felt very safe and the reduced numbers helped for sure, there was plenty of room for all the crew and other guests. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative but also giving you time to admire the stunning Adriatic coastline. Lokrum Island was such a little gem of a place to visit, a trip to the Dead lake is worth the short walk and the monastery buildings make you feel you are part of Kings Landing (GOT reference) I could not rate this tour highly enough Oh, almost forgot swimming off the boat was amazing 😊 Oh and again watching the sunset on the trip home will bring back very happy memories for a very long time 😊

Dubrovnik and Lokrum island sea kayak tour(small group)
Tour is really easy, even with kids (mine are 10 and 13). We had one stop to swim then went all around Lokrum island, that is beautiful. Just regret we had only 1 stop to do snorkeling.

Excellent Tour with a great guide.

GAME OF THRONES Lokrum Special
Darvos our tour guide was the best. He not only knew about the GOT stuff, but he knew the history. We referred to him as the most handsome man in the city. The trip to Locum was worth it, I would do it all over again. Take a bathing suit if you do a trip to Locum because there is a wonderful little spot to take a swim and have some cocktails. The cocktails by the swimming spot had the best drinks and if you are definitely a GOT fan you have to try the GOT drink, it is delicious. To add to it Darvos was an extra on GOT and there is a picture of him in the Split GOT museum.

Drazen was a wonderful guide. It was a small group and we had a very nice trip. It is a good way to get some exercise while seeing Dubrovnik and Lokrum by water. I highly recommend the trip!

When to Get There

Lokrum Island is accessible from April through November, weather-permitting. July is the driest and sunniest month, making it an excellent time to visit. Lokrum tends to be more humid in the afternoon than in the morning, so plan more strenuous activities, such as hiking, for earlier in the day.

What to See on The Island

A designated nature reserve, Lokrum features many tree-shaded walking paths. One highlight of the island is the star-shaped Fort Royal, which was constructed by the French in the early 19th century. Today the fort offers wonderful views of Dubrovnik and the town of Cavtat to the south. And be sure to check out the Dead Sea, a salt lake with calm, sheltered waters suitable for children and less-confident swimmers.
