Take a bit of a breather from bustling Dubrovnik

Set along Croatia's Adriatic Coast, the charming village of Cavtat lies to the southeast of busy, bustling Dubrovnik. In comparison, the quiet streets of this fishing village turned tiny resort town feel positively undiscovered. As well as serving as a quaint and charming beach destination, you'll also find well-preserved ancient ruins and an entrancing local history. Consider settling down in the Old Town, which is set on a small peninsula, or take a look at Cavtat vacation rentals sitting further back in the hills, many with private pools and expansive Adriatic views.

Scenic and secluded, making for the ultimate escape

Cavtat features a picturesque, tree-lined harbor, with a few historical buildings scattered in between waterfront restaurants and bars. It's the perfect place to take in the sights and sounds of town, go for a stroll, shop for souvenirs, or catch a boat ride out into the sea to relax or visit other nearby villages. Throughout Cavtat, you'll find quiet and seemingly hidden swimming spots, shaded walking paths, and park benches overlooking the sea. You can begin envisioning your tranquil getaway as soon as you start browsing Cavtat vacation rentals.

Prepare to meet a vibrant cast of historical characters

Situated just behind the harbor, you'll find the Rector's Palace, a 19th-century Renaissance mansion, which features the Baltazar Bogisic Collection, a series of personal notes and items from a locally renowned lawyer, born in the 1800s. Also nearby is the St. Nicholas Church, an ornate, baroque structure featuring famous works of art. Other highlights include the House of Vlaho Bukovac, which is now a museum dedicated to the local painter in his former home, and the Racic Mausoleum, built for an esteemed ship-owning family who lived in Cavtat from the late 19th-century.

The perfect spot when the sun is shining (and when it's not)

If the beach is your top priority while in Cavtat, your best bet is to visit from late spring through early fall. July and August are known for sunny, hot weather and long days, but you'll also find the town to be at its most crowded. If you prefer to avoid this, consider May through June or September through mid-November, when the crowds are smaller and the prices lower. November through April can bring the occasional rainy day, but you'll have the added bonus of nabbing some lower prices and potential deals on Cavtat vacation rentals.

Cavtat is the place to be if you love the sea

Cavtat is known for its tree-lined harbor and the clear blue water of the Adriatic, all set against a backdrop of rolling hills. The village's Old Town juts out into the sea on a small peninsula, surrounded by natural bays on each side. Croatia is known for its rocky coastline, and many of the local beaches are pebbled, but Cavtat also has sandy beaches, most of which are on the outskirts of town. You can also catch a boat out to the protected islands of Mrkan, Bobara i Supetar, and explore the natural flora and fauna.
