"Whoa, what's that? A white naked butt?" Rubbing my eyes in disbelief, I then approaching the ship captain to get some explanations. "Hey, Captain! Is that really a naked man standing on the rock or am I seeing a ghost?"
The bearded captain laughed so hard before answering, "You silly young lady, of course he's a real person. Look! There are more of them in that island. It's called the nudist beach of Lokrum island. Do you want to join them, Dear?"
"Nope, not today." I grinned cheekily, whip my camera out and snapped some pictures.
Dubrovnik certainly has so much to offer other than the charming Old Town which could be too crowded during the peak season. It was around midday when I decided to join a boat tour in order to find some quiet moments while absorbing the beauty of this coastal city from the sea. I thought a one hour boat tour around the city and Lokrum island would be a great idea to rest my weary legs.
Covered in pine trees, the island is actually a perfect hideaway to spend a relaxing day for swimming or sunbathing. There are also some sites to explore like a botanical garden and the ruins of a monastery. The captain told me that some scenes of 'Game of Thrones' were filmed in this island. My boat didn't dock in the island so I can't really tell you about it.

After about 15 minutes, the boat was approaching Lokrum island and I noticed a naked man was relaxing on a rock. When it became closer I could see there were actually more than 20 people in the 'so called beach', sunbathing and swimming without any clothes on. Just like what I've imagined about Eden where naked women and men are wandering freely, minus the snake and forbidden fruit. Some of them immediately turned their body away from my boat while others didn't seem to care about exposing their 'you know what'. One guy even swam toward my boat as if he demanded more attention, lol.

Next time you are in Dubrovnik, you might interested in visiting Lokrum island and join them if you want to. Or else the boat ride itself was pretty an enjoyable experience. There are numerous routes to choose from the ticket booths in the harbour. For me Dubrovnik is really a beautiful city and I took abundant pictures that's impossible to fit in only one post. So please stay tuned for more post, aye! I promise there will be no x-rated pictures in the next post. Cheers!
