A mesmerizing vista of shaded blues, merging into each other against the contrast of white sands, the Sveti Jakov Beach is quiet and this highly reposeful. Be an absolute beach bum, spend the day at this beach as you enjoy the views of the old town of Dubrovnik. It only gets better with a few bars around that serve you drinks on the beach! Part from this, activities such as swimming and snorkeling can be undertaken here. You are bound to see a ton of colorful fish as you peep in.

  • The best beach near Dubrovnik! It is so wonderful!!! The water is clear as tears, and the hill behind the beach protects you from strong wind (and because of that it is too hot from time to time). There is a restaurant and bar on the beach, so you can have a lunch or buy some drink or ice-cream. The only minus is that you have to overcome looooong stairs down to the beach... and then up))))

  • A really nice beach option if you’re in Dubrovnik. Further away from the old town so a lot less busy. Manageable on foot but take a taxi if you’re not up for a 20-30 minute walk. Once there you’ll see a Catholic Church - follow the footpath behind the church and eventually you’ll see some steps leading to the beach (St Jacob’s). Beach chairs and umbrellas for hire but there is more sand than other beaches nearby so a towel alone was fine for us! There is also a bar but the atmosphere of the beach (at least when we were there) was relaxed and local. Would highly recommend - worth the walk!

  • Beautiful, secluded. Location and views are stunning. Difficult to find at first as parking is not recognised on google maps. Not fully sand beach either but water is great.

  • Great small beach located just south of Dubrovnik. We got the recommendation to visit this beach because it's mostly locals that visit this beach compared to the beaches closer to the city. Though the beach is small, we never felt like we couldn't find any place to lay our towels. If there is a cruise ship in the bay, you can expect the sunbeds to already be rented. A small bar and restaurant located on the beach with affordable drinks and meal, but it might be a good idea to pack your own food and beverage.

  • I rank it with 5 stars as a beach experience comparing to other beaches in the area, not actually as a beach. (It would have 4 points). I recommend, the walk is nice also. You can go from the coast line (longe and nicer) or with the short cut (harder and through the city). Beach is less crowded than downtown, is at walking distance, and you have all the services. When I went, the music was also great. Beer is around 35 kn and sunset is very nice and chill. I didn’t take pics at peak hour, but it was not that bad. Rented a shade for 50kn and had a great afternoon.
