Shaded by emerald pines, crowned by amber-roofed buildings and fronted by a sapphire sea – holidays to Srebreno are downright gems.

The Srebreno scene

Cosying up to big-name Dubrovnik on the southern coast of Croatia, Srebreno has all you need for a quiet little getaway. The recipe for relaxation here's simple – take a small fishing hamlet, surround it with pines and palms, sprinkle in some walking trails and top it off with a pebbly beach.

Kayak the open waters

Be the captain of your own little stretch of sea by hopping in a kayak and paddling the coast – the view of the shoreline from the open water's certainly snap-worthy. For a close-up of what lies beneath, try snorkelling through Dalmatia's underwater world.

Drinks with a view

Srebreno's a real kick-back-and-relax sort of place. The beachfront bars are the ideal place to sip on your morning coffee or to stop off for a cold beer or cocktail. They have a mountain backdrop and sit directly on the waterfront – perfect for sea-gazing and people-watching.
