WEATHER LOWDOWN

Dubrovnik in June is one of the warmest months of the year and has a number of events for you to enjoy. Many tourists flock to Dubrovnik in the month of June, meaning that the city becomes much busier than in previous months. 

Daily average temperatures in June are about 22°C (72°F), highs reaching up to 27°C (82°F) and lows plummeting to about 16°C (62°F). With very warm temperatures and long hours of daylight it is essential that you make sure to drink enough water and stay out of the sun to avoid heatstroke, and ensure that you wear sunscreen of an appropriate factor when out and about. It is still not the hottest in the city however—recent recorded temperatures report August as the hottest month, with an average high of 28°C (84°F), rarely exceeding 32°C (90°F).

Over the course of the month, the hours of sunshine remain pretty constant, with an average of about 15 hours per day. The shortest day of the month is June 1 with 15:06 hours of daylight; the longest is June 21 with 15:20 hours of daylight.

The average rainfall during June is only 75mm over 6 days, so you are very likely to experience dry, warm weather during your stay. Lighter clothing such as t-shirts and shorts will be appropriate to wear during June, along with possibly some warmer items for the evenings. The average probability that some form of precipitation will be observed is 22-29%, occurring as moderate or light rain, and thunderstorms.

In June the average sea temperature is around 21°C (70°F), so it would be a good idea to bring your swim wear. There are many water-based activities for you to enjoy such as water-skiing, wakeboarding and wind-surfing.

The skies above the city are mostly clear, with the cloud cover about 19-29%. As the month progresses, the temperature warms and there will be less clouds at about 7% later in the month. The air will be quite dry, ranging from 39% (comfortable) to 83% (humid). The air is driest around June 20 (45%) and most humid around June 1 (77%).

Daily wind speed averages in June vary from 2 mph to 16 mph (light air to moderate breeze) or about 2-14 knots. Winds typically blow in from the east, and remain at a fairly consistent light level throughout the month. Though it's the season for light summer clothing, be sure to pack a cardigan in case of a particularly breezy night.

The beginning of June is generous on sunlight with about 15 hours a day, and a daily average temperature of 19°C (67°F), highs of 23°C (75°F) and lows of 16°C (62°F). Expected rainfall is about 29%. By the middle of the month the temperature slowly increases to an average of 22°C (73°F), highs of 26°C (80°F) and lows of 19°C (67°F), with average rainfall dropping to 26%. By the end of the month you'll experience a steady increase of warmth, with 15:15 hours of daylight, rainfall at 22% and average temperatures of 23°C (75°F), highs of 27°C (82°F) and lows of 20°C (69°F). 

THINGS TO DO

June is the peak of the summer season—a time for sun, surf and sunbathers in Dubrovnik. The sea is warm enough to swim in, the hotels and attractions are all open, and the crowds are beginning to head over in droves.

Summer is also a great time to go window shopping at one of the local markets or shopping streets by the old harbour. Pick up a snack of fresh fruit and cheese at the Gunduliceva Poliana open-air market. For souvenir hunters, try the Green Room garden and gift shop (Boškovićeva Poljana), which features handmade jewellery made by local craftsmen.

There are ample opportunities for sun and sand in June. Adrenaline junkies can choose from white water rafting, scuba diving, waterskiing, catamaran sailing, parasailing, sea kayaking and more. Facilities to book are available on all major beaches.

Travellers seeking to escape the heat can seek shade in one of the many museums Dubrovnik has to offer. The Maritime Museum (Ulica kneza Damjana Jude 2) with St. John Fortress offers a fascinating exhibition on the seafaring heritage of Dubrovnik. The building is divided into four sections—the period of the republic, the age of steam, the Second World War, and techniques of sailing and navigation.

Lovers of art and history should certainly not miss the beautiful Franciscan Monastery (Placa 2), which houses artefacts such as ancient manuscripts, laboratory equipment and old medical books that date back centuries. The old Pharmacy, first established in 1317, is the third oldest working pharmacy in the world. For something more low-key try the "Rupe" Museum (Od rupa 3), an ethnography museum with more than 5,000 exhibits featured in the town's old granary. On display you'll find interesting folk costumes, textiles, and tidbits on folklore.

If you fancy something different outside of town, head to the stables of Kojan Koral. Local Croats lead guided tours on horseback along the rocky coastline. Or drive out to the Konavle Valley, one of the leading wine regions in Croatia, to sample some local delicacies at one of the plentiful wineries.

Visitors can also enjoy a lovely walk at the Arbouretum Trsteno, a historical 70-acre garden just 20 minutes' drive from Dubrovnik. It was constructed around the late 15th century and currently the property of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. The grounds feature a Renaissance garden and villa, 14-arch aqueduct, old oil presses, a chapel and a fountain with sculptures of nymphs and Neptune.

HIT THE BEACH

Dubrovnik's main public beach is arguably Banje, located just outside of the city walls. This beach is probably the easiest to access from the old city, and you'll find great places to sunbathe on one of the provided beds or your towel. If you're looking for some fun, there's ample places to rent sports gear such as pedal boats, sea scooters, jet-skis, and more.

The second most popular beach is Copacabana, located on the north side of Lapad peninsula. This beautiful pebble beach is popular with families and swimmers. As night falls, the coastline makes for a stunning scene. Enjoy a cocktail or coffee at one of the many nightclubs, cafes and restaurants that line the seaside.

If you want to avoid the crowds head over the local secret of Sv. Jakov Beach. Located east of Ploce Gate beneath the beautiful abbey of St. James, at this secluded beach you can enjoy some easy swimming and views of the isle of Lokrum.

WHERE TO EAT AND DRINK

Local Adriatic fare is the specialty of Tovjerna Sesame (Dante Alighieria bb), such as Dalmatian roast beef and gnocchi with truffles. For something with a bit more flair, try Azur (Pobijana 10), a hidden little gem that serves up great Mediterranean-Asian fusion meals such as shrimp pouch on roasted aubergine in coconut curry sauce.

Orhan (Od Tabakarije 1) is a delicious option for those needing a respite from the crowds. The restaurant is at the foot of Tower Lovrjenac, just 200m out of the Old Town. It serves both Croatian and international fare—try their most famous dish, the black cuttlefish risotto.

For a quick, tasty bite, amble over to Tabasco (Cavtatska ulica 11), famous for their freshly baked pizzas at great value. Or sip a lovely cappuccino while enjoying crème brulee right on the main street of Stradun at Café Bistro Orlando (Stradun Placa).

To sample some of the best wines in Dubrovnik, visit D'Vino's Wine Bar (Palmoticeva 4a) in the charming Pucic Palace hotel. This wine bar has a huge selection of local and international wines, offering 60 wines by the glass and more by the bottle.

Within the city walls, you'll find several night clubs, top-notch discos such as Club Revelin (Ulica Svetog Dominika 3) and the East West Club (Frana Supila 4) right on Banje Beach. If mellower live music is more your thing, head over to Troubadour (Bunićeva poljana 2), a jazz café right next to the Cathedral. The cocktails are pricey but the musicians certainly are talented.

WHERE TO STAY

Villa Dubrovnik (Ulica Vlaha Bukovca 6) is a minimalist but five-star hotel outside of the city. The views of the harbour, the bay and the island of Lokrum are spectacular. Guests can reserve individual rooms, suites or the standalone Villa Kolin. On-site facilities include two restaurants, library lounge, spa, and prosciutto and wine bar.

Within Old Town, a great budget but comfortable option is the three-star Stari Grad (Općina Dubrovni). This 16th century boutique was recently furnished. Each one of its eight rooms is equipped with air conditioning, private bathrooms, mini-bar, satellite TV, telephone, safety box and free wifi. The hotel also houses the Green & Purple café bar and the Above5 restaurant, located on the fifth floor rooftop with terrific views of the city and sea.

More Hotel (Ulica kardinala Stepinca 33) is a five-star boutique hotel that offers 36 bedrooms and suites in the Bay of Lapad. Rooms are equipped with a/c, wifi, LCD tv, minibar and bathroom with whirlpool bath or shower. On-site facilities include three restaurants and bars, swimming pool and open Jacuzzi.
