Be aware that the already well established car ban rule for downtown Cavtat has come into effect for this season and will last until October 31, 2013.
Not to worry. If you are driving to Cavtat, there is ample parking space available at the parking lot just off the entrance to the town.
Besides, not only that Cavtat is such a small town where a motor vehicle is basically an unecessary nuisance, but you might find that slow-to-medium speed stroll might actually refresh you, particularly if you take a swim here and there.
Did you know Cavtat has more than 4 miles of panoramic walking paths? Or that those paths run along the shore, so that you can simply dive into the crystal clear Adriatic at will?
The final stage of RFL 1000 started off and finished in Cavtat. A number of runners from varies countries joined in.
The 25 km course passed through the hills, valleys and the shores of Konavle, an area of astonishing natural beauty. It took in tough climbs, cross-country tracks and breathtaking views of the island-studded Dalmatian sea.
Aside from its humanitarian impetus, the race also served to promote active vacation experience in the tourist resort of Cavtat and the region of Konavle.
RFL1000 is a campaign to raise funds for Love146, a charity that gives care and hope to trafficked children, and to raise awareness of the scale of human trafficking across Europe.
Today's "Cavtajska Regatta" was to be held in two classes. However, turnout has not been quite as expected. In addition, the Sirocco blew a tad too much cutting the distance short.
Namely, the planned route was to start from the port of Cavtat, go around the peninnsula of Rat to the bay of Tiha. On the way back, the sailboats were to circle the isle of Supetar before heading back to the port. Due to stronger than expected winds out on the open seas, the Supetar part of the route was excluded.
Still, it was nice to see the notion of summer coming into being as the boats set sail and a few curious pairs of eyes from the shore bid them good luck. . .

The club's goal is to enhance awareness of the benefits of cycling as sport and recreational activity, as well as to promote Konavle as cycling-lovers destination. Many interesting and fun cycling happenings are to ensue in the coming season. Announcements will, of course, be made public.
It's noteworthy that the club is open to all newcomers. Namely, all cyclers are welcome to (associate) membership, regardless of their place of residence.
Cavtat’s Šipun Cave, in the northeastern part of the peninsula Rat in Cavtat, has been protected as a geomorphologic natural monument since 1963.
With biospeleology research, which has lasted, with interruptions, since the late 19th century until today, a significant type of cave fauna has been established. In it, more than 60 organisms are described, which is the largest number of described species in a cave in Croatia.
Šipun is known for its spacious indoor cave and great hall with icicle clusters, the most attractive of which bears the name of St. Vlaho.
Šipun Cave in Cavtat was renovated within the project "Nature for the Future" which was financed from the EU's program of Croatian and Montenegrin cross-border collaboration.
As per the majority decision of the councilor of the Konavle municipality, the recently rebuilt town square is named after the first Croatian president Dr. Franjo Tuđman (whose bust is on display in the middle of it).
The square has been reopened to public for several months now, and is THE venue for much of the town's summer entertainment.
