      If you would like to experience a relaxing, friendly holiday then cavtat is certainly your destination. You have the choice of trendy bars & restaurants or smaller, more relaxed establishments all within easy reach. The walk along the promenade is wonderful with the luxury yachts moored up on show (how the other half lives eh?) and just being able to sit and drink in the atmosphere of the sea and fantastic sunshine. For the more energetic you have terrific walks through the mountains but can also take a gentle amble around the peninsulars, drinking in the fantastic views, watch little black squirrel type creatures dashing through the tree tops, wondering why they are in such a hurry when life is such an easy pace here. A truly wonderful place!
