There are a lot of picturesque beaches along the coast of Dubrovnik. All of them are of a noble turquoise color of the Mediterranean Sea and have crystal-clear water. Another local feature - almost all beaches are pebbled here. Only Lapad beach has fine sand in its shallow waters, though the beach itself is pebbled also.
Sometimes, however, "a beach" is a too prominent name :) In Dubrivnik they call "a beach" any place where you can reach water. We mean literally ANY. It can be a usual for Dubrovnik pebbled beach, a stone slab with a ladder leading into the water or simply a cliff :)
