I love a good walk along the coastline, and in Dubrovnik, we found one in the Lapad Peninsula. 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.
