Dubrovnik walks and sunsets

The best place for romantic walks and leisure in general is Dubrovnik's city part called Lapad followed by the adjoining Babin Kuk. Lapad is called the whole peninsula just west of The City. Peninsula Lapad includes Babin Kuk but locally these are two different Dubrovnik parts. Getting confused ? Go to Dubrovnik maps
The best place in Lapad is 'Uvala Lapad' or 'Uvala' meaning 'Bay', a wonderful and green nature surrounded promenade walkway with many cafe bars featuring dim and personal atmosphere during the evenings. At the end of this walkway is a beach with the same name 'Uvala'. We pass just north of the beach and go westward along a beautiful Lapad coastline walkway with view of the Lapad Bay beaches and The Elaphite Islands, a walkway with many places for undisturbed rest in the wonderful green and the view at the astonishing sunset beyond The Elaphite Islands.
Following this same path eventually we end up in Babin Kuk, the most western part of Dubrovnik. It is worth to mention that Babin Kuk also has its promenade walkway called 'Little Stradun' surrounded by nature and various sport playing grounds. Of course our little path goes all around peninsula Lapad and brings us back not far from the place we started our walk. The whole walk is about 4,5 km.

Mala and Velika Petka (Small and Great Petka) hills provide an excellent pine shaded walks and the end of the walk, the top, is a rewarding vista spot from where you can see far to the Dubrovnik archipelago, as far as Mljet on one side and the other side far horizon on the open sea as well as a nice view of Lapad and Gruz. Not to mention an amazing, as if, never ending sunset enjoyed from this location. The walk is about 1,5 km.

The City has the most popular short romance walks is to Porporela, The City's breakwater, offering a seat and view to Lokrum, sea and gulls, walk to Porporela, known as the lovers walk.
Other places close but outside Dubrovnik featuring great walkways, sunsets and countryside: Cavtat, Mlini, Srebreno,Trsteno.
