Soak in Some Seriously Impressive Sights

Your very first glimpses of Cavtat’s stunning tree-lined harbour should tell you that you’re in for a visual treat in this charming oceanside retreat. The promenade is bordered by palm trees and the sparkling blue ocean is tinted inky green in places from the reflections of the verdant pine forests beyond.

Experience Some of the Highlights of Croatian Culture

This beautiful waterfront community has been home to artists and creatives for decades. One of Cavtat’s most famous cultural figures is Vlaho Bukovac, a painter who was at the forefront of the Croatian modernism movement. His former home, which is tucked behind a 15th-century Franciscan monastery, has been carefully restored and now showcases his work perfectly.

Immerse Yourself in Authentic Croatian Charm

Cavtat’s cobbled streets and narrow winding alleyways are intriguing and charming. The sides of buildings are gently blanketed with beautiful pink and white blooms, and the vegetable market is alive with colour and life.

Find Peace and Tranquillity on your Croatian Yacht Getaway

There’s a reason why artists have been drawn to Cavtat for centuries: its light. By day the water shimmers and the light softly illuminates the town in a way that feels almost dreamlike. As evening approaches, any clouds in the sky glow silver and copper before they softly melt away and are replaced by a blanket of gently twinkling stars.

Your Adventure isn’t Over when the Sun Sets

From strolling the beautiful promenade and tucking into some of those fresh ingredients you saw earlier in the day at the market in one of Cavtat’s many eateries and restaurants, to marking the end of a wonderful day with a glass of travarica (a locally made herb brandy) you will never forget the time you spent in this veritable Croatian paradise.
