I cannot recommend this island enough. There are a few bars and shops but the Dead Sea is reason enough to go. The extra is the wildlife lots of very tame animals running free.
Loved the trip over on the boat and loved every minute on the island.
30 per cent off the trip with a 3 day dubrovnik card made it even better.

Absolutely stunning place to visit. A must see while you’re at Dubrovnik. Only ten minutes boat rides from Dubrovnik will get you there. We went as part of a Game of Thrones tour where some parts of Lokrum was used in shooting Game of Thrones Quarth scenes. We were so impressed with the island the tour guide gave us the option to stay on to explore the island because the tour ended on the island and we were to browse at our leisure and pace until the last boat was leaving the island. An interesting fact is no one lives on the island or stays overnight because it is thought to be a cursed place. The islands only inhabitants are an ambundance or rabbits and peacocks. A haven of a place and a relaxing breather from the busy streets of Dubrovnik, will revisit.

The journey to Lokrum is short from Dubrovnik and the Island Is interesting the Dead Sea lake and the Monastery we found interesting also, however let me tell you the downsides.
If you haven’t got a good map or google maps the signage is terrible to the various locations, the cafe next to the visitor centre is a rip off 18 kuna for a bottle of water easily beats London prices and believe me once the Brits think it is a rip off numbers will dwindle.
The botanical garden could do with money being spent on it again felt underwhelmed, surely with the tourist revenue each day it could be easily done.
The restaurant by the monastery was excellent and excellent value a highlight.
Lokrum Island you must do better.

Sitting just 600 meters from the historic city walls, Lokrum Island is sadly mostly ignored by the millions of tourists that visit Dubrovnik each year. Small enough to walk around, the island has a lot to offer from an old abandoned monastery to a large botanical garden. There are some great swimming spots from The Rocks on the western side of the island and it is well worth hiking up to the Fort Royal for gorgeous views over the island and towards Dubrovnik’s Old Town. A small salt lake on the island called the Dead Sea is great for swimming with children.  With lush vegetation, a large number of peacocks and even a small nudist beach on the south-eastern end of the island, it truly is a small piece of Eden right on Dubrovnik’s doorstep.

How to get there:
In Dubrovnik’s Old Port there are many tour operators advertising trips to Lokrum Island. They are all similarly priced at around 80kn return and boats travel to and from the island every half hour. Note that on arrival there is a conservation fee of 150kn per person.

What to know:
Be sure to take your bikini, a towel and enough sun cream. Even though there isn’t really a beach, swimming from The Rocks is great fun. There are many ladders fixed to the rocks, making getting in and out easy. Also, pack some snacks and have a picnic under the beautiful trees that cover the island.

For a game of thrones fan, iron throne and the botanical garden was the highlight. You can explore the island for an entire day or half day as you need. There are nice locations that you can jump into the sea and relax. Island has tons of peackocks and rabbits. It's 150kn in total for the return boat trip and ticket. Once inside you don't meet too many people.

I particularly liked the story behind the island that says it's haunted. Two small cafes for a quick bite. Be ready to walk alot. Carry bottles of water with you and a towel. Toilets in the island are free to use and are clean.
