South Dalmatia naturist part2 inevitably covers not only Dubrovnik city at the foot of hill Srd, a highlight of the Adriatic and the whole Croatia, but also magical Elafiti islands and the southern part of the Dubrovnik parish including Cavtat town.
If you are looking for naturist beaches in very vicinity of the old town of Dubrovnik, the choice is rather non-existent for this type of bathing. If you belong to regular 'no clothes' swimmers than you have to visit some islands of Dubrovnik archipelago.
The nearest naturist beach, Cava beach, is located on Babin Kuk peninsula, about 6 km northwest of Dubrovnik's old town. The beach is rocky with mainly large pebbles and stones between the rocks. It is quite narrow (about 10 meters) and about 300 meters long.
This beach is close to popular textile Copacabana beach which has lots of beach facilities. To reach this beach take the bus N° 6 from Pile Gate in front of the old town, and exit at the last station near the President hotel.
Fallow the path in front of the hotel where you find two signs indicating the way to Copacabana and Cava beach. First part of the beach is mainly textile, and the smaller part after is only for naturist. There are no facilities on the beach but in vicinity there is a beach bar.
Lokrum island is situated ten minutes by taxi boat from the old port of Dubrovnik. Lokrum is honored as one of Croatia's national parks and home to one of the country's premier nudist beaches.
If you are a naturist that this island will be your key destination. The Lokrum island is a nature park with exotic tropical and subtropical plants and a unique botanical garden. The best bet is to catch one of the boats from the old city and after ten minutes you are there.
Take a nice walk through the island crisscrossed by shady paths covered by pines. Extensive rocky beaches run along the eastern end of the island, and there's a nudist section (FKK) at the far eastern cape. It's the real haven for naturist swimmers.
One of the top South Dalmatia highlights are Elafiti islands, a group of fourteen islands gems. Only three of them are inhabited (Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan), with a total of about one thousand inhabitants.
The Elafiti islands with indented coastline with a lot of beautiful lovely bays, sandy beaches, are approximately 20 minutes by boat from Dubrovnik, Gruz port. Jadrolinija keeps one ship line and one car ferry line from Dubrovnik to Elafiti islands that run throughout the year.
