Unwind at one of the nearest beaches such as Lapad or Banje Beach, both within easy reach of the city. If the beach isn't for you, why not try a sunset kayak tour.

Local cuisine in the city centres largely around fresh seafood. You will find a range of mid to high-end restaurants in the Old Town, the better they are, the earlier you'll need to book. If you want the best, try to get a table at Proto, the most celebrated fish restaurant in town. Those looking for something quick and filling should consider one of the city's many pizzerias, for a delicious stonebaked pizza.
The party scene in Dubrovnik starts in the Old Town. The Placa Stradun is bursting with bars, plenty of outdoor seating and a bustling atmosphere. Make sure you sample the local fruity brandy, rakija. Nightclubbing is also popular in Dubrovnik, with many of the best clubs located just outside of the Old Town such as Revelin, based in a 16th-century tower.
