WHERE TO DRINK
Buza bar has tables arranged over a series of levels on a cliffside so you can enjoy a drink next to the sparkling sea, and it’s candlelit after dark. Buza is open daily from May to October from 9am to 2am, and on sunny days the rest of the year.

WHAT TO DO
Spare half a day for sea kayaking around the Adriatic coast. The trip takes you to the foot of the Lovnjenac Fortress, around the city’s medieval walls and to the tiny island of Lokrum.
