Only 6 kilometers to the city center, ACI Marina Dubrovnik has been holding the Blue Flag for many years in a row for its perfectly clean sea. The marina was also declared the best marina in the Adriatic (in the 250-450 berth (mooring) category) in the “Flower of Tourism – Quality for Croatia” competition for three consecutive years (2010-2012).
