Lokrum Island
We laid down our beach towels on the rocks, where the edge of the island met the soft lapping waves. Several peacocks watched us from a close distance, their eyes gleaming with hunger and curiosity. We kept them in our peripheral sight as we enjoyed a picnic lunch of bread, cheese, pate, and wine. So this was the wonder to be found on Lokrum Island: mischievous peacocks, a soothing melody from the waves, and tranquil isolation.

Lokrum Island
From Dubrovnik hop a ferry for the five minute trip to Lokrum where you can enjoy a picnic, swim, hike, visit the botanic garden and get an amazing view of the historic walls surrounding the city.

A hidden treasure trove
Lokrum is less than 20 minutes taxi-boat ride from Dubrovnik. There's an abandoned monastery with hidden gem of idyllic little lake where one can find peace away from the crowd of Dubrovnik for a day. I would recommend anyone to go when in Dubrovnik.

Lokrum
Brought over from the Canary Islands some 150 years ago, peacocks are roam freely here in Lokrum. The birds seemed to have adjusted pretty well to their new habitat.
