Duba Pelješka (also known as ‘Duba‘) is one of the cutest and smallest villages on Peljesac. The village is situated on the very seashore right
on the northern foot of the Sveti Ilija (see above photo) just about 12 km west from Trpanj. The village, facing north, has unspoiled views over Biokovo mountain, right across the waters of Mali Ston Bay as well as pretty pebble beach all along the seashore.
Duba -simple lifestyle
Duba is pretty isolated so people still engage in simple lifestyle – mostly fishing and farming. Historically, at the beginning of last century, most of the villagers left for ‘better life’ in USA so nowadays there are only dozen of families living there. Nevertheless quite a few families rent rooms and apartments to visitors , so if one wish, there is an option to stay in Duba. Interesting things to see in Duba are couple of churches and chapels, old (antique) walls in the village as well as unusual pebble beach ‘Jezero’ in the near vicinity.
Walk around Duba
There are also nice walking trails around the olive groves and vineyards. The smallest village in the Trpanj's district. Placed at the foot of the highest mountain on the peninsula- St. Elijas (961) and 13 km from Trpanj. Excursion or stay in Duba means experiencing true Dalmatian fishery and agricultural place. Therefore, even today, Duba is not spoiled by commercial tourism.
Traditional mediterranean architecture
The spirit of history can be felt in traditional mediterranean arhitecture of the houses, several old churches and chaples as well as in antique walls that show the continuity of population of this area. If you stay in Duba, or if you go only for a visit you should inevitably visit the nearby beach Jezero (lake)-gravel shoal splashed by the waves from one side and from the other by a lake (dividing it from the hills of the mount St. Elijas).
The water of the lake pours into the sea from a brook. As the lake is not accessible by car you are guaranteed to enjoy in peace and nature.
