The Coast of Dubrovnik is a gentle region of olive groves and vineyards, with an indented shore and lavish vegetation, picturesque folk costume and the local dance “lindo”. This is a maritime region whose villages, embraced by coves and sandy beaches, used to be the summer homes of Dubrovnik noblemen, and which today are places of rest and enjoyment for many tourists. 

This is an area of contrast, with some twenty villages nestling in the beauty of the landscape, some defined bythe sea and others with scarcely enough soil and an abundance of stone scattered among the slopes of the interior. 

The shoreline is more developed and livelier, orientated to life by the sea, fishing and tourism; whilst inland villages are barely reached by the scent of the sea. 

Their life is one of vines and olive trees, fi gs, carobs, sage, heather and rosemary, pine and holm-oaks, growing among the rocks. These two contrasting areas create a unique scenery of azure blue, green foliage and white stone. This is the Community of the Dubrovnik Coast, with its administrative seat in Slano. 

The Adriatic Tourist Road connects it to both near and more distant destinations and to Dubrovnik, which is not far away. Man has survived in this area, mastering the land and securing that which is vital for life, but always in harmony with nature.

It is precisely this variety which surprises and charms all - the Dubrovnik Coast cannot be forgotten.

 

Slano

Slano is the biggest and most important small town and a community centre. Traditionally, the harvillages in the immediate hinterland are municipally linked to it, forming a constituent part of the Community of the Dubrovnik Coast. Slano is 30 kilometres from the centre of Dubrovnik. It is situated in a spacious and beautiful bay of the same name, which was a flooded valley, next to the walled shoreline, opposite the island of Šipan and divided by the Koločep Channel. Slano is attractive due to its numerous pebble beaches, lush vegetation and pleasant climate. It was once on the line-boat route to Dubrovnik and Korčula, and also on local routes to other smaller ports and jetties on the Dubrovnik Coast and on the peninsula of Pelješac (Zaton, Orašac, Trsteno, Doli, Ston, etc.). There are also boat services to the neighbouring islands and ports in the broader area (Šipan, Mljet and others).

The bay is protected from the wind, so that it is an ideal haven and anchorage for ships, boats and yachts. Its economy is based on tourism Its economy is based on tourism with accommodation provided by the hotels “Admiral” and “Osmine”, private pensions, apartments, campsites and other venues; also on agriculture (olives, vines, fruit), fi shing and other marine activities.

  • The History of the Dubrovnik Coast
    Supposed remains from the Neolithic period have not yet been found within the municipal boundaries of the Dubrovnik Coast. The possible Neolithic locationof Špilja, to the west of the village of Đonta Doli will probably determine the ancient history of the area.
