Lokrum Island Tours

Just 600 meters (1 kilometer) from Dubrovnik, the car-free island of Lokrum makes a peaceful escape from the city. At its center is a medieval Benedictine monastery complex that’s surrounded by botanical gardens planted with exotic trees, flowers, and bushes. Picturesque swimming spots abound on the island’s rocky shoreline.

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. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • It’s not possible to stay overnight on the island, so be sure to arrange return transport. 
  • Smoking is not permitted on Lokrum Island.
  • Bring swim shoes to protect your feet from the rocky shore, and plenty of water if you plan on hiking. 
  • The island has several cafés and small restaurants. Alternatively, bring picnic supplies. 

How to Get There
April through November, ferries depart regularly from Dubrovnik’s Old Harbour and dock at Portoc Bay in Lokrum. The journey takes 10 to 15 minutes. It’s also possible to get to the island by private charter boats or by kayak.

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.
