Mlini and Srebreno beaches are the nearest to us, just a 5 min drive away.
They are connected by a long promenade that snakes through the Pine trees, along the coastal edge.
In Srebreno, the slightly busier of the two, you have café bars and, a few tourist shops, small kiosks offering ferry tickets to the islands and the old town of Dubrovnik and excursions for further afield areas. (The prices aren’t fixed and so if you are a group ask for a discount!). To add to the atmosphere there are usually local ladies setting up stalsl selling homemade pancakes and corn on the BBQ.
Water sports are offered here, Pedalos, Jet Skis, Aquatic Jet Packs/ Flyboards and Kayjaks and further along in Mlini is a recommended Dive Centre.
For the younger ones, under the shade of the pine trees, there is a lovely wooden play area, with a café bar and ice creams.
The beaches are narrow here and pebbly but if you wade in far enough there is sand.
As you move along and pass into Mlini and the dive centre with an excellent café bar, offering great sunsets, you come to the water polo arena, offering great entertainment whether they are training but especially if there is a match being played – normally matches are played in the evenings when it is cooler. The beach here in Mlini is served by 2 small hotels but there seems to be room for all on the large beach- again partly pebbles and sand. There is also a great place to swim just off the large terrace and café as you enter the water, by steps you are on a sand bed. There is little shade on this beach and so you need to get there early to hire an umbrella or take your own.
What makes Mlini one of our favourite places is the back drop to the beach. The old buildings, disused mill and church nestled between the rocks, the Oleander and fauna and the beautiful blue of the sea- and there is always something going on!
