Lokrum Island
Just a quick 15-minute ferry ride away, with boats departing the Old Town harbor every half hour, Lokrum Island offers magnificent nature walks through botanic gardens and olive groves, and past the many peacocks who roam here. Paths climb up to sites like the remains of the oldest Benedictine monastery in the region and Napoleon’s Fort Royal at the very top of the island. Lokrum is the locals’ favorite escape from the tourist hubbub that takes over the historic core. They come here for a relaxing walk, a picnic in the shade, or a refreshing dip in the clear Adriatic.

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.

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.

Lokrum
Lokrum is just a 15-minute ride from the Old Town harbor, and boats depart every half-hour throughout the day. The island offers magnificent walks through a botanical garden and olive groves, leading up to sites such as the remains of the oldest Benedictine monastery in the Dubrovnik area. Napoleon’s Fort Royal sits on the highest point, commanding views over the surrounding area. A whole lot of domesticated peacocks inhabit the island, so don't panic if you hear their cries.
