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.
