Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.

bars

Buza II

Buza II takes the concept of drinking with a view of the ocean to a whole new level. It is a cliff-face bar carved into the old town fortifications, and the view of the Adriatic Ocean is truly inspiring. Take a seat on the panoramic terrace at sunset and enjoy a casual drink at this chilled bar away from the crowded caf├ęs.

East-West

Open only during the summer months, this is a restaurant, bar and club complex all in one, with its own private beach club on Lazareti beach, a short walk from the old town. By day, East-West is the premier beach club in Dubrovnik and at night it transforms into a glitzy affair with cool DJ tunes and cocktails served under the stars.

what we think

With its tall ramparts, towers and turrets, Dubrovnik is the image of a child’s fairy-tale fortress. Through the drawbridge of the Western Gate, the main street which dissects the town exudes old-world charm. Tour the city walls enjoying picturesque views of the old town’s orange-tiled rooftops and reward your exercise with a piece of one of the world’s best cakes. Take a stroll down the pedestrianised century-old cobblestone streets, soak up the warm honey-coloured limestone, medieval arches, Moorish facades and Arabian windows. Delight in the secretive alleys and lively piazzas. Watch the sun set behind your cocktail at a bar carved out of the Dalmation cliffs with mesmerising views of the breathtaking coast. A true jewel of the Adriatic.
