Dubrovnik is pretty. It's a picture-perfect town. Kind of a town that makes you go WOW all the time. When in Dubrovnik, I keep snapping pictures constantly. However, to really enjoy its beauty, you need to see it from the sea. Take a boat tour, a taxi boat or a kayak. Sail around the old town.
We've done just that this week. We've been lucky enough to be invited on a half-day private boat trip around the old town, and to the nearby Elafiti islands. Our boat was awesome – a nice motor yacht Jeanneau Prestige 42 Fly. I could easily get used to this kind of life.
We embarked near hotel Lapad, just across the Gruz port, and the cruise took us around the Babin Kuk area, pass the President hotel, along Lapad Bay, and further to Dubrovnik old town. We enjoyed a lot watching this newer part of Dubrovnik from the sea, getting a feel of town's coastline, popular hotels, and local beaches. We admired a lot the Grebeni, a group of 11 islets and reefs off the Lapad coast, housing the lighthouse (that you can actually rent out for your luxury Dubrovnik holidays).
But the highlight of our cruise was a sail around Dubrovnik old town. We've approached the old town from the Lovrjenac Fortress. The vistas are incredible. The old town, the historical walls, the towers, the old port, one scenery is nicer than the other.
Here are few Dubrovnik pictures we took from the sea. I don't even think they capture completely the beauty that the eyes see.
