Cava naturist beach
Cava is located very close to Copacabana beach, almost direct vicinity. It's a somewhat a secluded pebble and stone sloped beach. From the beach you have a wonderful view of the Elaphite Islands and the Dubrovnik bridge.
The beach is quite narrow (maybe 10m at most) and probably about 300m from end to end.
From Dubrovnik take the # 6 bus going from the Pile Gate to Dubrava.
Get of the bus at the last station, just outside the Hotel President.
Pass along the front of the hotel and bear left onto the path which is signed to Cava Beach and Copacabana Beach.
The path goes gently downhill. Follow it a few hundred meters and when you reach some steps coming in from the right, turn left at the end of a low wall onto a path doubling back down the cliff towards the sea.
(Peering over that wall a bit before using the path you can see part of the beach at the foot of the cliff).
Descend the steepish path and you will come out at one end of the beach. Any reasonably mobile person should be able to negotiate the path.
The path down to the beach may also be reached from Copacabana Beach.
The first part of the beach is mainly textile and topless but going along the beach for about 100 meters and crossing a small rocky outcrop. The remainder is virtually all naturist.
Although the beach is stony, there are some good flat areas which have been cleared and some low walls have been built up as shelter if it is windy. A couple of thick towels or a camping mattress should provide enough protection to be comfortable. The beach faces a bit North of West, and in the afternoon, the far end has the sunniest aspect.

Location: Babin Kuk, Dubrovnik
Directions: From Lapad Beach take the path along the waters edge toward the Importante Hotel. Follow the path trough the Hotel grounds to the road then turn right at the barrier, about a 100m up the service road look for the sign which directs you to the bus stop. Turn left at the sign and walk through the President Hotel car park to the bus stop on the other side of the road. Take the path from behind the bus stop through the wooded park behind the Argosy Hotel. Keep going until you come to the small shopping centre, from here there are good signs to Cava Beach. From any other part of Dubrovnik the easiest way is to get a Number 6 bus to outside the President Hotel and follow the directions above from the bus stop.
Review: The naturist beach is at the far end of Cava Beach from the path coming in and is well marked by signs painted on the rocks which variously say FKK, Naturist, Naturisti and No Clothing etc. The beach is rocky and you need to be prepared to scramble over the rock ledge to get to the Naturist part. There are patches of fine gravel where you can find a comfortable spot to put a towel down. The best place to enter the water is about half way up the beach where there is a gap between the rocks and a rock pool which opens into the water. The water is deep as soon as you get past the rocks and for good swimmers only. There is almost no current since the tide range is very small but be aware that if a fast boat goes by the wake can be quite big. You will find a mix of couples and singles, locals and tourists with maybe a dozen or so people on a busy day. There is a pleasant relaxing atmosphere there, quite laid back and easy going with the with some boats going by and the occasional nosey textile swimming slowly by for a look but this did not detract from the lovely surroundings and spectacular view of the islands and the new bridge.
The bar/cafe in the non naturist beach area was open when we visited in July 2009.
Lokrum naturist beach (Lokrum)
From the harbor at Lokrum there is a 5-10 minutes walk to the nudist beach. Just follow the road to the left after debarking the vessel. There are clear signs showing you the way. After a slight climbing of the road you´re entering the nudist area.
If you prefer an easy access to the crystal clear water you just turn directly to the left after the sign. There is the freshwater shower and some excellent places to bathe in the sun but that part is a bit more crowded. If you prefer a place more for yourself just continue until you have found what you are looking for. At the end of the naturist area you will come to a natural inlet well worth seeing.
Betirina naturist beach
is a naturist beach located in Mlini-Srebreno, about 7km of Dubrovnik.
You get to the beach by following the well signposted path, just look for "Fkk beach" signs, from Hotel Asterea. You can park your car at the harbor in Mlini or at Hotel Astarea. The walk takes you about 15 mins.
The beach is mostly rocky, with a small shingle beach. There is also a bar and facilities for hiring sun umbrellas and sun-loungers. You can also hire a boat.
Supetar, Cavtat - naturist beach (Cavtat)
This beach is located on the small island Supetar just opposite Cavtat town south of Dubrovnik. There is a regular boat service from Cavtat harbor to this small island (some 15 minutes boat ride, price in 2003 was 50 Kuna - that's about 6.6 Euro). It is a bouldery (rocky) beach.
Hotel Croatia , Cavtat naturist beach
This naturist beach is located on the west side of the Sustjepan peninsula just below the Hotel Croatia. It is a rocky beach which has been smoothed with concrete.
This rocky beach gets plenty of sunshine during the day and the stone terraces just slowly plunge into the sea, very suitable for swimming. The beach has all the facilities as it is usual to near hotel beaches. There are showers, cloakrooms, toilettes, restaurant etc. available
Plat naturist beach
Plat is a tiny oasis of peace and tranquility, known for its lush vegetation and pebble and sandy beaches located just about 12 km of Dubrovnik.
You get there by following the signs to Hotel Plat and then turning left at the bottom of the hill (signposted to the diving center and "nightclub"). After turning you pass the "Tavern Plat" and go on until you reach a small rock and concrete jetty where taxi boats can be boarded for trips to Cavtat, Mlini and Dubrovnik. Immediately adjacent to the jetty and extending south for some 100m is the official naturist beach (there are FKK signs painted onto the jetty)
The beach is pebbly, with a few large rocks and very clean (no seaweed or litter). The beach gently shelves into the sea allowing weak or non-swimmers to enjoy the water. Because the beach faces southwest into Zupa bay it offers very little shade, so sun protection is recommended.
There are no facilities on the beach but two taverns and fresh water showers are within 150m. The beach at hand for those staying at the nearby Hotels Orphee and Plat.
