Dubrovnik on a day

Hi everyone!!! Please we need sugestions on the smartes things to do in Dubrovnik on just 1 day. Our cruise will stop there next September. I've been reading a lot and I wonder, besides walking the walls and the whole Old Town, if there would be time to enter the country, to have a glipmse of other parts of the country. Remember, we have just 1 day... Thanks!!!

I would plan on spending the entire day in Dubrovnik. I spent a week in Dubrovnik at a conference and really enjoyed the town. To get to other sites around Dubrovnik you have to take a bus or boat. Walking the walls will take 2-3 hours with many great photo sites along with places to have a drink. The town has many nice restaurants. The shopping is not that great.

We just returned from 2 days in Dubrovnik and had a GREAT time. One of our favorite memories was enjoying a drink at Cold Drinks Buza the views are amazing and you get to watch (and maybe partake) people diving in the crystal clear water from the rocks. With only one day I think I would just stick to Dubrovnik walk the walls (I take lots of pictures and it only took me 1.5 hours with lots of photo stops), stroll around the old town, and spend some time on the beach right outside of the walls. Have fun!

We went on a Kayak tour in Dubrovnik and it was great. We got exercise and kayaked around Lokum Island then to a cave for lunch with crystal clear water. I'd highly recommend it!

Probably best to just stick to Dubrovnik if you have only one day - if you want to get away from the crowds and have a swim, Lokrum island is good. It's only a 15-minute ride on the regular ferry from the old port. It's a nature reserve, you can wander the paths, sunbathe/swim - the 'dead lake' (so-called because of the high salt content) is nice. The Old Town is pretty small, easily seen in a day.
