St. Jacob Beach
St. Jacob beach (Dubrovnik)
You dislike crowded beaches? Then this is the perfect beach for you. It is located in a secluded cove below the cliffs, below the church of St. Jacob, after which it was named. It offers an unforgettable view of the Old City Walls, as well as on the Island of Lokrum. St. Jacob is both a pebble and sandy beach. It can be reached by descending a large flight of steps, which makes it inappropriate for those with physical disabilities or poor physical condition and families with small children. If you want to give jet-skiing a go, well, here you can! If you are more the “sandy”-sports type , the beach offers rental kayaks. You can also gather a few friends and play volleyball after which you can cool off in a nearby bar. But, how to get to the beach? When in the Old Town, make a trip to the hotel Argentina. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel you can find the aforementioned Church of St. Jacob below which you can find the beach.

St. James’ Beach is about 2.6km away from the Old Town of Dubrovnik. It is situated in Vlaho Bukovac Street. Near the Church of St. James, you have to get down the stairs to reach the beach. There are plenty of stairs, so if you are unable to walk, it is better for you to go elsewhere.
If you are driving with a car show this translation to the taxi driver:
Molim Vas odvezite me do plaže sv. Jakova koja se nalazi se u Ulici Vlaha Bukovca (to je ona strma plaža koja ima puno stepenica. Nalazi se kod crkve sv. Jakova). Hvala!
You must also show to the taxi driver that he must turn on the taximeter:
Molim Vas uključite taksimetar. Hvala!
Please can you tell me how to find this sight:
Molim Vas uputite me prema plaži sv. Jakov. Nalazi se u Ulici Vlaha Bukovca, od starog dijela grada Dubrovnika udaljena je oko 2.6 km (to je ona strma plaža koja ima puno stepenica, nalazi se kod crkve sv. Jakova). Hvala!
