So, when or while you plan your trip to Croatia, and before you make any bookings whatsoever, make sure you’ve read Travel And Home’s short and sweet review of this beautiful and quaint ancient village, namely Cavtat (pronounced tsav-tat).

Only 19 km by road from Dubrovnik lies the scenic old town of Cavtat with many old churches. If you’re not into crowds, then this petite peninsula is worth visiting. You’re right on the water with some awesome views. Another reason making it worth it to stay in Cavtat is that it is much less expensive than its big brothers such as Dubrovnik and Split.

 
 

Getting to Cavtat

Compare flight ticket prices and book your flight to Dubrovnik Airport. From there you can take a taxi, which is more expensive, or catch a bus from Dubrovnik’s main bus terminal. You need to take the line 10 bus, which usually takes about 30 minutes to get you to your destination. The bus runs at least every hour. This is also the most convenient way to get to Cavtat from Dubrovnik, in terms of public transport.

Best time to visit Cavtat

Now the question is, do you like it hot!? If so, the high season months (July, August) are waiting for you when you can soak away in the Adriatic’s water with temperatures of around 26°C (79°F). The day temperatures are in their upper thirties, for instance around 38°C (100°F).  But keep in mind, this is also the season that comes with more expensive lodging options.

Just slightly offseason, but also very pleasant: May, June, and September. Sometimes, even early October, but it can be risky as you’re well into Autumn by then.

Number of days you need in Cavtat

Again, if you’re into escaping the crowds and using this coastal village as your base, you could easily stay 4 to 5 days without getting bored. And then there is always the prettiest waterfront to return to after a day away, where you have plenty of options to wine-and-dine.

There are many day-trips from here to explore besides the village itself.
