Coastal Cavtat at the northern end of the valley is the largest town and a popular holiday resort. That said, it retains its cultural and historic charm with wonderful buildings such as the Rector’s Palace, Church of Our Lady Cavtat and the Franciscan Monastery.
The valley stretches south to the Montenegrin border. Molunat is the southernmost point on the coast. The other 30 villages in the region are inland, including Čilipi near Dubrovnik airport.
Konavle Valley is wonderful for cycling and hiking along cliffs and through fields to pretty little villages. For steeper slopes hit the inclines of Sniježnica (at 1,234 meters it’s the highest point of the region). Opt for a more relaxing activity and go wine tasting in vineyards renowned for full-bodied cabernet sauvignon and merlot blends. Take to the waves with a boat rental and enjoy water-sports like jet-skiing; stay dry with beach volleyball, parachuting and skydiving. Of course, your trip would not be complete without visiting the hospitable restaurants and bars for which Croatia is famous.
