Molunat is a fishing and tourist settlement in the extreme south of the Croatian coastline at the distance of 40 km SE from Dubrovnik and 20 km from the airport and from Cavtat.
It is connected to Dubrovnik city by bus line 11 three times a day.
The name Molunat derives from Illyrian and Greek root (molos – the port) referring to the ancient ports of Mali and Veliki Molunat protected against bad weather conditions. There are many traces of various archaelogical sites on the sea floor, on the mainland, on its walls and fortifications. The Molunat area has an ecologically preserved nature with numerous species of mediterranean medicinal herbs. Its indented coastline is full of coves around the peninsula, the two islets with shallow and clear sea with plenty of fish. Veliki and Mali Škoj and Gora od Molunta are covered by dense macchia, holm-oaks, cypress trees and the umbrella-pines. Due to the favourable land configuration, the climate is mild, mediterranean with hot summers and refreshing mistral blowing in the afternoon hours.
