Pasjaca Beach

Cavtat - Konavle Region

The most beautiful beach in Europe is located in the heart of the sublime region of Konavle, 10 min from Cavtat and 30 minutes’ drive from the pearl of the Adriatic, the city of Dubrovnik.

 

Nested at the cliff’s foot, this beach is a real miracle. In 1955, a tunnel was created from the fields upstream (often flooded) to the sea. The remaining rocks were used to build the roads or were left on the seaside. In a few years the waves transformed these rocks into pebbles then into sand. Pasjaca beach was born. After a few years the sea took away all the sand and the locals carried new rocks that turned into pebbles and sand again. They will do that again and again to preserve their little paradise. "Pasjaca beach", the most beautiful beach in Europe, is the result of both man and nature’s work. 

 

Do not miss to visit Cavtat, a beautiful destination chosen among the most beautiful destinations in Europe by travellers from all over the world. Pasjaca Beach is just a 15-minute drive from Cavtat.

 

How to get there? Book your flights to Dubrovnik as well as your accommodation at the best prices in Cavtat or Dubrovnik and your best tours in Dubrovnik.
