Scenic afternoon walk in Lapad

The Setnica walking trail takes you from Lapad Beach promenade all the way to the end of the peninsula where you can witness the most serene view of the islands in the Dubrovnik archipelago, the Elaphite islands.

Rocky bays nestle beneath the trail, and in many places there are staircases that take you down to the shimmering Adriatic sea. The trail is partly shaded by pine trees offering a relief from the gloriously hot sunshine. You can see lizards wiggling along the stone walls, cats snoozing in the breeze and all you hear is the sea gushing against the rock walls.

The walking trail is rather short, probably less than 2km each way and an ideal place to visit to get a different view of Dubrovnik.

Kauniita rannikko kävelyitä ei voita mikään, ja Dubrovnikissa löysimme sellaisen Lapadin niemimaalta. Setnican kävelyreitti lähtee Lapadin rantapromenadilta ja jatkuu niemimaan päähän saakka, josta pääset todistamaan Dubrovnikin saariston upeita näkymiä Elafitin saarille.

Kivikkoiset merialtaat kuohuvat kävelyreitin alla, ja monissa paikoissa on portaikkoja, joita pitkin pääset alas kimaltelevaan Adrianmereen joko uimaan tai lepäämään reitin varrella. Välimerelliset mäntypuut reitin yllä tarjoavat helpotusta luomalla varjoja suojaamaan sinua auringonpaisteelta. Voit nähdä liskoja vipeltämässä kiviseinillä, kissoja päiväunilla tuulenvireessä ja ainoa ääni mitä kuulet ovat aallot jotka lyövät vasten kallioita. 

Kävelyreitti on melko lyhyt, todennäköisesti alle 2 km suuntaansa ja ihanteellinen paikka vierailla nähdäksesi erilaisen puolen Dubrovnikista.Setnica Walking Trail, Lapad, Dubrovnik | Karoliina KaziSetnica Walking Trail, Lapad, Dubrovnik | Karoliina KaziSetnica Walking Trail, Lapad, Dubrovnik | Karoliina KaziSetnica Walking Trail, Lapad, Dubrovnik | Karoliina KaziSetnica Walking Trail, Lapad, Dubrovnik | Karoliina KaziCheck out all these oranges!

    Your photographs are always so beautifully composed and atmospheric. Are the cats friendly? Were those oranges as big as grapefruits? Were the walking trails added in more modern times to accommodate tourists?

      Hi Sue – thank you! The cats are lovely – some friendlier than others, but most of them enjoy having a little chat 🙂 That’s a good question about the walking trails. Im pretty sure the paved paths have been added there in modern times, but who knows, there might have been a rocky path there leading up to some homes long time ago already. Oranges – no, not as big as grapefruits 🙂 The fruit tree you see the most is figs, but they were not in season yet (will be in August) and I read somewhere that one of the fig species grows in California as well. They are so delicious – do you like figs? Karoliina x

    I think that walking is the best way to get to really know a place. We get to see so many distinctive things about it, especially in countries we aren’t too familiar with. Some amazing views along that fabulous walk!
