I visited Dubrovnik in September 2012 and, though it’s the only time I’ve been so far, I think it’s the perfect time to visit King’s Landing. The weather is still warm enough for shorts and swimming in the sea but the crowds are thinner. You can still catch shows like Folklor Lindo or spend your time reading on one of the beaches. Though you’re pointing in the wrong direction to really catch the sunset, the cliff bars are still a great place to welcome the evening.
When thinking about what to pack for Dubrovnik, I kept coming back to items with a nautical or Mediterranean vibe. Navy and white, stripes, gladiator style sandals…
Dubrovnik streets aren’t the place for stilettos but a girl still wants a bit of heel sometimes so I recommend sticking with a block heel. They’re trending right now so you’ll have lots of options. Get a simple, versatile look that will go with your dresses and also with shorts and a tank.
Even in September the sun in Dubrovnik can be strong. A straw hat will keep your eyes shielded and give you some protection against the sun while adding to your style.
While you can certainly stay casual, you may want to get dressed up and check out one of the finer restaurants in the area. Keep it light and breezy with a floral maxi.
You’ll definitely want to pack two swimsuits. One of my favourite things to do in Dubrovnik was swimming off the city walls as well as bobbing around in the crystal clear water off Banje Beach. No one likes putting on a wet suit so pack a spare.
