    Looks like a lot of fun Alexei. When I visited, I just took the ferry over and hiked around the island, but I wish I had done this too. If my memory serves me, apparently the island was also a quarantine zone during times of plague, so sailors had to first stop there before they were allowed into Dubrovnik. Worth a day trip.

      We ran out of time so didn’t have time to head over but really wish we did! Would love to see the Benedictine monastery too! I didn’t know that about the quarantine zone! Thanks, David

    So we’ve tried kayaking and all i can say is way too much like a work out, we prefer someone else to do the rowing! we’re so lazy LOL! But must have been great for a different perspective, as your pics show. Love the Game of Thrones locations and fascinating history, I remember the Balkan War, it wasn’t that long ago. And why did you have to make me google what a FKK beach was ?!

      My friend was saying how she didn’t need to do any paddling because I was going so fast! I was missing the gym 🙂 It was a great trip and I’m missing Dubrovnik so much right now! You mean you haven’t been to one?

    What a fantastic way of seeing a place with a whole new perspective! I have an image my mind of the sound of “sea silence” and you kayaking around enjoying the views listening to the fascinating history – brilliant! Love this adventure!

      The “sea silence” was broken up by my grunting as I tried to beat the couple paddling next to win! It’s definitely not the taking part! No, it was absolutely fantastic – highly recommend!

    Looks like a lot of fun but I think I would opt for hiking it. I’m a sucker for any botanical gardens. But, it really looks like a beautiful place, thanks for sharing!

    This sounds incredible! I’m glad you were able to re-book for another day and actually go. Swimming, cliff-jumping, kayaking, picnics on the beach… Sounds like my kind of day. 🙂

    Great writing, by the way! I felt like I was there, learning about the history and seeing the cliffs. And from the pictures, it looks like you had a really beautiful day! Thanks for sharing!

    What a great adventure. Kayaking from Dubrovnik to Lokrum Island. What a beautiful perspective from the ocean. Glad you didn’t go on the rough sea day that would have taken lots of work. After reading this I would definitely like to try this and see the beautiful countryside. Glad you had a great time!! Thanks for sharing…

      Thanks Stephanie! Yeah I’m not the best I’m the water so wouldn’t want to be stranded in the middle of the Adriatic! Definitely recommend this!

    I’m glad you were able to postpone the kayaking until the sea calmed down. Kayaking is challenging enough in calm waters. I would love to see the caves but I would not do any cliff diving!

      Yeah we were pretty lucky, especially since we only had one more day in Dubrovnik! It was great fun!

    I’d go for the special UNESCO reserve of forest vegetation walking some trails and visiting the Botanical Gardens. Lokrum Island looks awesome! #FeetDoTravel

    This looks like fun! I am taking some kayaking classes and hopefully I will go out on the sea as well. Nice writing and lovely pictures as always

      Thanks Oana! The great thing is you don’t need any classes! Anyone can do it without prior experience! Hope you get to give it a try soon.

    This trip story is really inspiring. I’m so excited to visit Lokrum island. I like to kayaking in the ocean and Lokrum island seems like a perfect place for adventurous kayaking experience.

    Thanks for letting know the expenses and directions to visit Lokrum island.
