How to reach Dubrovnik
The most convenient way to reach Dubrovnik is by air. Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) is well-connected to major European cities, making it easily accessible for international visitors. Once you land at the airport, you can take a taxi or shuttle bus to the city center.
For those who prefer a more scenic approach, arriving in Dubrovnik by sea is a magical experience. The city is well-connected by ferry services, particularly from other Croatian coastal towns and islands. If you're sailing on your vessel, the Adriatic Sea provides a stunning backdrop as you approach the historic port.
If you're exploring Croatia by land before setting sail, Dubrovnik is easily reachable by bus or car. The road network is well-maintained, offering breathtaking views of the Adriatic coastline as you make your way to this maritime paradise.
To reach Dubrovnik from Split, you can take a private road transfer or the speed catamaran line. Speed catamaran line is available during the summer season. Road transfer means you will spend a couple of hours driving, but at the same time, this trip will turn into a sightseeing trip with beautiful coastal scenery. We organize as well private speed boat transfers from Split to Dubrovnik.
