Swim, marvel at exotic plants, and walk with peacocks at Island of Lokrum.

Visit the botanical garden to admire Mediterranean plants, including laurels, oaks, pines, cypresses, olives, agaves, cacti, magnolia, and palms.

Island of Lokrum Reviews
Great island to visit w a 5 min ferry ride . it has several beaches and a pond in the middle were you can swim. Great food on an open area terrace more »
Easy purchase of tickets by the ferry in the old town port and a short 10 minute crossing and the hustle and bustle is far behind. A day with a picnic and gentle strolling except the climb to the hill... more »
