Ancient necropolises, impressive architecture and secluded rocky coves lapped by the crystalline waters of the Adriatic Sea, a Cavtat holiday seamlessly blends Croatian culture with a classic seaside escape.
Perched between two pretty harbours, Cavtat – pronounced “tsav-tat” – is a charming town backed by a forest of pine and cypress trees, yet remains within easy reach of the secluded white-pebble beaches the Dalmatian Coast is renowned for. Beach Rat is one of the best in near Cavtat, where lush pines flank huge flat rocks and shallow turquoise waters.
Beaches aside, there's plenty of history and culture to immerse yourself in on a Cavtat break. Step back from the coast to find a charming old city crammed with history and heritage. Explore the old ruins of the former city walls, find an Illyrian stone necropolis and visit the crumbling remnants of an ancient amphitheatre. For art lovers, Cavtat has become a notable stop on the Croatian art trail (it was the former home of the much-admired Croatian artist, Vlaho Bukovac).
Cavtat is also a foodie’s paradise, packed with traditional dishes from the Dalmatia region, including soparnik (Swiss chard and cheese pie) and pašticada (beef stew with prunes). Some of Croatia’s best wines from the nearby Konavle region are popular here, too. Sample it all in the cosy tavernas of the old town or in the chichi waterfront restaurants which run along Cavtat’s pretty harbour.
If you’re still looking for more, Dubrovnik is an easy 30-minute drive north. For a little more adventure, you can even take a scenic boat trip to the city, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
