If you are planning daytrips, you might schedule them for days when the cruiseships are in Dubrovnik, as the old town is quite small and a cruise ship full of people will make it a lot less pleasant. Closer places like Cavtat might also be overwhelmed on those days.
swimming in the Adriatica on the Lokrum FKK (nudist) beach. The water was +17 but it's very nice for us, two russian guys :) We were the only swimming people there. Sorry, my wife didn't approve the picture to put it here ;-) (joking)

Franjo Tudman Bridge
For a lot of visitors coming to Dubrovnik from northern Croatia or Bosnia and Herzegovina, their first sight of Dubrovnik is the modern Franjo Tudman Bridge. Opened in 2002, this bridge attracted a lot of controversy during its planning, with some fearing that the huge bridge would impact negatively on the natural beauty of Dubrovnik’s surrounding coastal landscape. I have to say that to me, the bridge is a very impressive piece of modern architecture and only serves to bridge (if you’ll excuse the pun) the gap between ancient Dubrovnik and new Dubrovnik. The bridge isn’t located anywhere near the Old Town of Dubrovnik, but to the west in the newer Gruz area of the modern city, so there is no danger of it having any aesthetic effect on Dubrovnik’s Old Town charm. Crossing the 480 metre suspension bridge before entering the city, you get fantastic views over the Rijeka Dubrovacko and out across the Adriatic towards the Elaphiti Islands.
bar on the cliff
This bar is surely the most incredible bar that I've seen in Dubrovnik. As you can see on the picture, this small bar is on the cliff just outside the old town !! You'll have you drink in front of the sea, but go there, you'll first to find the entrance !! It's just a hole in the city hall not very far from the old port.
