While there, order a glass of refreshing Croatian beer and watch people jumping in the sea from high cliffs in nearby. This is something that locals love to do but lately it is especially popular among Australian tourists. For Australians this is one more top five must do in Dubrovnik but we would not recommend it as you really have to be careful to avoid hitting the rocks under the sea.
