There is also a nudist beach at the south-eastern end of the island. To reach the nudist beach, head left from the ferry and follow the signs marked “FKK”; the rocks at the far end are Dubrovnik’s de facto gay beach.

Also popular is the Dead Sea Lake, a small saltwater lake formed by centuries of storms and the specific formation of the island’s rocky shoreline. The sea waves surge along the beach and pour into a deep, rocky cave that is connected by underground channels to the lake.

The island’s main hub is its large medieval Benedictine monastery, which houses a restaurant and a display on the island’s history and the popular TV show Game of Thrones, which was partly filmed in Dubrovnik. This is your chance to pose imperiously in a reproduction of the Iron Throne. The monastery has a pretty cloister garden and a significant botanical garden, featuring giant agaves and palms from South Africa and Brazil.

Lokrum is only a 10-minute ferry ride from Dubrovnik’s Old Harbour. Boats leave roughly hourly in summer (half-hourly in July and August). The public boat ticket price includes the entrance fee to the nature reserve (basically, the island), but if you arrive with another boat, you are required to pay 90 kuna ($14.08) ticket at the information centre in the harbour of Portoč.
 
Make sure to check what time the last boat to the mainland departs. Also remember that no one can stay overnight and smoking is not permitted anywhere on the island.
