Locals adore this small pebble and sandy beach. In addition to the Mediterranean suntan, you'll get a beautiful view of the Old Town of Dubrovnik and Lokrum Island.
Saint Jakov beach actually sounds as Sveti Jakov beach in Croatian. On this pebble and sandy beach you can sunbathe and lazily swim in azure water every thirty minutes but what is more important - you can do a lot of fun activities here such as beach volleyball, jet ski rides and kayak. You can rent sun umbrellas and sun beds here also, though they don't lease towels. Sun bed rental costs 35 kuna. As you see, the infrastructure is very developed here :)
Oh, yes - and there are really great views! From here you can see the Old Town of Dubrovnik and Lokrum Island. And you won't be bored with tourists and their cameras. You know, Oddviser should say it's a must visit beach in Dubrovnik!
Go to St. James Church. There you'll see the steps that lead down directly to the beach. There goes a bus No. 8 from the city center to the church. You need a final stop.
