Private Lokrum Island Tour from Dubrovnik is the best way to avoid the crowds and still be able to see the unique gem of Dubrovnik. Just a breath away from Old Town Port, like a guardian angel, stands green and forested Lokrum Island. Also known as the island of kings, Lokrum Island was first mentioned in 1023 where Benedictine abbey and monastery were founded. According to legend, Richard the Lion-heart shipwrecked in 1192 after returning from the crusades and found himself cast ashore on Lokrum. He pledged to build a church on the island, but at the plea of Dubrovnik citizens, the church was built in The City.
There are no houses, hotels, stores, or souvenir shops on Lokrum island. Visitors come here to truly relax and enjoy the silence and idyllic coves tucked among the rocks. On this Lokrum Island Boat Tour from Dubrovnik, you can visit several sights like a Benedictine monastery and its Botanical Garden with special and endemic tropical and subtropical plants originating from Australia to South America. Besides the Monastery and Botanical Garden, there are a few other locations you should not miss.
Lokrum’s special attraction is a small lake called Mrtvo More (Dead Sea), a unique lake linked with the sea, crystal clear and calm water suitable for bathing, a favorite resort to many visitors. A fortress called Fort Royale, built by the French in 1806 at the highest elevated point of Lokrum is giving a marvelous, exquisite view of the whole island and the city of Dubrovnik.

Best day of our trip
We booked a full day private cruise with Dubrovnik Boat Rent to go to the Lokrum and Elafiti Islands. We had Ivan as our captain, and he was fantastic. He knew exactly where to take us, which included gorgeous coves to swim in, caves to snorkel into, and a great little island for lunch – Lopud. The boat was clean, stocked with drinks and even had a Gopro for us to use.
We met Ivan near the Old town docks, where he picked us up at 10 am, and they had a taxi ready to take us back to our place after the day was over.
I can’t recommend Dubrovnik Boat Rent and Ivan highly enough. Especially since the poor guy had to haul me up the ladder when I returned to the boat after swimming. Highly recommend!
