Hands down, the best day trip is Lokrum Island from Dubrovnik!🇭🇷 One day trip can please everyone in your travel family: History buff ✔, adventure seeker ✔, kids ✔, nature lover ✔, eco-tourist ✔, backpacker ✔ vlog junkies ✔. It’s super easy to get to Lokrum Island from Dubrovnik – for the budget friendly traveler just take one of the boats leaving half-hourly in summer (less in off months) from Porporela (Dubrovnik’s Old Port) Guides say the trip lasts 15 minutes but it can actually take up to 30 minutes depending on the direction you come in from (as we experienced) Once you arrive head directly to the welcome center (Forest Ranger's House) and pay the Lokrum Island entrance fee (not included in boat ride cost) to start your best day trip and explore the island . Alternatively, There are regular, daily sailings from Dubrovnik Old Town Port to Lokrum Island serviced by private ferry company that sails to the Island two to four times per hour depending on the season. Most private companies include the cost of entrance to the island in the tour price but be sure to double check!!!!! Want even more adventure??? You can get to Lokrum Island by sea Kayak by booking a private kayak guided tour. I didn’t get to do this as the swells were to big for the kids but when I go back booking a kayak trip to Lokrum Island will be 1st on our bucket list.
GOOD TO KNOW: They have several restaurants on the island as well as clean restrooms. Wear good shoes that are all terrain and strap on like tevas or Chacos (don’t worry girls they have cute ones!) Don't feed the peacocks! I clearly didn't get the memo! And last but not least, just as in Dubrovnik Game of Thrones was filming on Lokrum Island!!! Travel Family Vlog | EscapingTheBubble video.
