Along Dubrovnik Region visitors will enjoy in the crystal clear sea and clean environment. The only exemption where swimming is not recommended is the port of Gruž and the Old Town harbor. Due to many ships and sewage water the sea quality in those areas must be improved before swimming can be recommended.
