Whilst the rest of Europe, and indeed most of the rest of Croatia, is gripped in the wet and grey start to autumn Dubrovnik has been basking in golden sunshine for the past few days.
The popular Sunset Beach Dubrovnik was awash with sunbathers and swimmers yesterday as tourists took the chance to top up their tans before heading home to colder climes. With temperatures in the low twenties it was the perfect day to relax by the Adriatic.
And the sea is still warm, the sea temperature today in Dubrovnik measured a balmy 22.5 degrees. In fact, the sea temperature in Dubrovnik is warmer than almost all northern European capitals. Dubrovnik could be in for more sunshine until the end of October as the Indian Summer blazes on.
