Taking a Swim in Srebreno, Croatia

This past weekend I made a 2 hour drive to Srebreno, a small town located on the far east side of the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea. The main goal was to relax. swim and enjoy the day, which I did. Srebreno is just south east of Dubrovnik, and is actually located midway between Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Airport. It makes for a nice stop for swimming, since the town hasn't got much to offer besides it. It's a great alternative for swimming then the crowded (and almost non existing) beaches in Dubrovnik.



A newly opened Sheraton Hotel could be seen from the beach, and there is also a big shopping mall nearby called Sub City where you can shop for food, clothes or have lunch in one of the two restaurants there.





The beaches are all natural and easy to access to. It's actually all sand beneath the water surface which is nice. On this day the water was still a bit cold, but I did enjoy it nonetheless. It made for a refreshing swim and there weren't that many people on the beach. I guess the peak of the tourist season hasn't arrived here yet.

Before returning home I had lunch in a sushi restaurant in the Sub City Mall. I ate this delicious ragu made with octopus and served with mashed potatoes.


Thank you all for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this little trip to Srebreno.

  15. das sieht soooo toll aus. da möchte ich gleich ins wasser hüpfen. und ich bereue es wieder, nicht am meer zu wohnen - oder zumindest nicht nahe genug daran. bei uns herrscht eine unerträgliche hitze - da wäre so eine abkühlung gerade richtig :)
