If you are travelling by car, the region is your oyster and if you do not have your own, there are numerous car hire options at Dubrovnik airport. Or, for a totally unique and authentic experience you can hire a quirky little Renault 4 from Konavle Travel.
With a car (or a driver) you can drive the coastal road from Molunat north through Mikulići, Poljice, Radovčići, and onto Popovići, where you can drop down to the stunning Pasjača Beach, named the best beach in Europe 2019 by Best Destinations.
Going inland, you can explore the valley of Konavle, and take in the sights of Čilipi, Pridvorje, Sokol Grad, and the River Ljuta, for breath-taking views, peaceful surroundings, local konobas (restaurants), and some great wineries.
This is also an area for lovers of hiking, exploring the mountain range at the back of the Konavle valley. For the intrepid adventurers, you can park up at Mihanići village and climb Sniježnica mountain for the most spectacular panoramic views of the Croatian coast, islands and two other countries – Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Travelling south from Molunat, you can reach Montenegro within 20 minutes. On the way perhaps stop off at Prevlaka, a small peninsula with a large fortress just before the border with Montenegro and the Bay of Kotor.
Without a car, there is also a local bus service which leaves from the harbour. An early bus will take you to Dubrovnik for a day trip and you can also access Cavtat and Mlini, where you can get a boat to Dubrovnik or Lokrum island – a must for Game of Thrones fans.
If you want a true Adriatic Sea experience, it is possible to hire a boat and skipper from Molunat itself and they can arrange a tailored boat trip just for you!
