Only a short walk from the City walls, you'll find Banje beach, one of the most popular spots during the summer. The beach is made of small pebbles.
Besides crystal clear water and amazing views of the City walls and Lokrum island, these beach offers full comfort.
This beach is equipped with showers and changing rooms. Visitors can rent sun loungers and parasol but it's fairly expensive (€60 a day). The alternative is to use the section of the beach where you can lay your towel freely (south side of the beach).
Once you are there, consider taking a kayaking tour (departing from here), which will take you beneath the City walls, then around Lokrum island to the Betina Cave. Or opt for renting a SUP board and do it on your own pace.
In the evening Banje beach turns into a place for exiting night-out. Eastwest Beach Club located on Banje beach attracts visitors who are looking for a great time.
