Cavtat, on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, is a laid-back coastal city with movie-star good looks. It’s set on a pine-cloaked headland and has 2 bays hemmed by a necklace of beaches. Its old town crams Medieval churches and grand mansions into its cobbled streets, and the harbour lines up pavement cafés, bars and ice-cream parlours along the prom.
This dinky village is slipped into a brag-worthy spot next to the Adriatic Sea, wedged between a gin-clear bay and tree-speckled hills. So it comes as no surprise that Slano isn’t a stranger to compliments on its model-good looks. Plus, its secluded location means it’s still in touch with its traditional roots.
