Lokrum Island - Review
One of Dubrovnik’s more popular off coast attractions, this emerald in the ocean has a monastery and a botanic garden to complement it’s natural beauty. Richard the Lionheart was apparently once shipwrecked here, but it was Archduke Maximillan Ferdinanand who built the garden that was to become the foundation of the main attraction here today. The mosnastary itself was built by Bnedictine monks who in the 11th century. The garden is rich with Mediteraanean flora like laurel, oak, pines, cypress and black pines, and in the middle of the island there is highly salty but small lake call the Dead Sea. It’s a pretty all rounded package, and don’t forget the swimming.

Lokrum Island, Dubrovnik Reviews
Beautiful Island. A lot of beautiful birds and animals roaming around (harmless). One of the GoT shooting locations. The view after covering the dead sea is just splendid. Massage and spa services are also available apart from restaurants, cafes and general stores. Very peaceful. One should definitely visit.
Beautiful little island, and perfect getaway for a day from crowded Dubrovnik. Exceptional nature where peacocks and rabbits wonder freely. Time runs fast exploring this charming island: from the small lake (aka dead sea) to olive gardens, kids playground, Game of thrones exhibition, rocky moonlike sea shore, botanical garden... each corner is amazing.
Had a nice afternoon on the island. Four hours was enough to explore all the island from the fort to the dead sea and have time for a swim. It was nice to walk the quiet paths to the north end of the island after being in the busy old town. There is also a little exhibit about Richard I and the monastery and another about Game of Thrones filming on the island.
The is place just off the Old Town, connected by boats and ferries. Its a great island to explore with plenty of peacocks and cats. The peacocks seem to have a great time with no one to disturb their presence. Some of the places here were used to film the Game of thrones but for the large part, it's a great day out for the whole family. The eateries here can be a bit pricey. No entry fee to the island but the ferries charge for the transport and they do not accept credit or debit cards. Must see.
We did a half day trip to the island. It was great. Lots of places to go swimming. There are rabbits everywhere.
