Danče, a rocky bay ideal for nature lovers, is one of the most popular and oldest beaches in Dalmatia and Dubrovnik. Here, the sea is deep and clear, and the water is slightly cooler than elsewhere in Dubrovnik. Due to regularly huge waves, the Danče beach is not recommended for young children (unless they are accompanied by their parents). However, if you are an experienced swimmer – this beach is perfect.
Just ten minutes away from Villa Orti, south of the shady Gradac park behind the University.

ST. JACOB’S BEACH
St. Jacob’s beach is one of Dubrovnik’s finest beaches. The walk to the beach comes adorned with a descent of 160 steps, so if you’re into more leisurely arrivals, inquire in the Old City harbour about boat transfers to the beach. Embraced in humongous cliffs topped with St. Jacob’s monastery, facing the Lokrum Island and serving vistas of the Old City in the distance, St. Jacob’s makes the stretch well worth it.
The beach of St. Jakob sits some 2 kilometres east of the Old City and can easily be reached on foot. From Ploče gate, walk ut to hill on the main road and turn right next to hotel Argentina.
