Just 10 km north of Dubrovnik, Zaton Bay is a place of natural beauty and tranquility. The deep bay, surrounded by mountain ridges, offers calm seas and natural protection from Dalmatia’s characteristic coastal winds and busy motor boat traffic surrounding Old City- the perfect place to start paddling.

A paddle around the bay reveals an old stone mill fed by bubbling underground springs and lovely aristocratic stone villas from Dubrovnik’s Renaissance. Where the bay meets the open sea, paddlers are rewarded with views of the near-by Elafiti Islands and a rugged coastline of towering cliffs and caves. Paddle to a private cove camouflaged by coastal cliffs- the perfect spot to swim, snorkel, cliff-jump, and relax on the beach or stop at one of the small villages for a cold drink.

We begin our bike ride in Radovčiči, 25 km south of Dubrovnik. The coastal road parallels the main road leaving it free of car, bus, and truck traffic. Konavle, a green valley wedged between sea and mountains, is home to numerous family owned vineyards and wineries. Cycle past ancient stone farmhouses and hilltop villages reminiscent of Tuscany. Vineyards and green fields give way to steep seaside cliffs, cypress groves, and spectacular views of the open sea and charming Molunat, a distinctive peninsula just before the Montenegro border.

The walk from Konavle’s coastal road winds through the narrow streets of a rural village of roughly 15 old stone houses. Beyond the village the single lane road continues towards the sea, ending at towering limestone cliffs overlooking the deep blue Adriatic. Far below Konavle’s rugged cliffs lies one of the Adriatic’s most beautiful secluded beaches- a secret the locals intend to keep to themselves. A well-maintained trail carved into the cliffs descends some 200 feet to a private pebble beach framed by crystal clear water and Konavle’s famous coastal cliffs.

Enjoy beach time and a dip in the sea on one of the Mediterranean’s most magnificent and untouched pieces of coastline.

The walk ends at a family owned wine tavern in the small village. The family’s history in the region dates back to the 1430s; countless generations have continued the family tradition of farming and producing high quality wines. Sample the local Plavac Mali and Merlot (red wines) and Malvasija (white wine indigenous to the Konavle region) and dine on local, organic specialties: prosciutto, homemade bread, cheese, salad, olive oil, and traditional dessert pastry

Trek well-maintained trails on a crest above the Konavle valley, south of Dubrovnik. With nearly every step atop the Strazisce hill starting from a small village of Velji Dol, a new panorama opens with soaring vistas hanging above the sea, Montenegrin mountains, Bosnian countryside and, of course the islands of Southern Dalmatia. 

After a light hike, we take a short drive to a family owned vineyard and cellar, where a light lunch of local prosciutto, cheese, figs, salad, and olive oil accompanies a wine making presentation. Varieties include Merlot, white Dubrovnik Malvasia, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
