How to get there

In order to see it or to also have a lunch there, one must first reach the restaurant. Only way to reach this gem is by sea.

We can take you to Bowa, of course.

Depending on the sea and the wind, the cruising from Dubrovnik to Bowa takes from 45 to 55 minutes, so if you would like to visit all three of the Elaphiti islands and still have enough time for a lunch at Bowa, the ideal tour for you is Medium day Elaphiti tour (six hours) or if you are feeling like an explorer and want to soak in as much as possible, then you can opt for a Full day Elaphiti (eight hours). Your skipper is always there to answer all of your questions, so don’t be shy, and find out what you want to know and plan the perfect itinerary together.


The second option is to take the ferry from port in Gruž to Šipan with the Jadrolinija ferry.

The ferry you should take is

807 Dubrovnik – Koločep – Lopud – Suđurađ (Šipan) or

831 Dubrovnik – Lopud -Suđurađ (Šipan)

The ferry from Dubrovnik to Suđurađ usually takes around 1 hour and 15 minutes and costs from 23 to 31 Croatian kuna.

When you get to Suđurađ on the island Šipan, there are option to go by car to Church of St. Mary, and then by foot to Bowa, but we would recommend it only for the most adventurous because the road is quite rocky. The better idea would be to take a boat ferry from Suđurađ to Bowa.

If you want to skip walking you can find a taxi boat to take you from Suđurađ to Bowa.

Bowa boat

Another option is to drive half an hour by car from Dubrovnik to Brsečine Harbour and then take Bowa water transfer which can be booked directly when booking a table reservation. The cost of the return ticket of Bowa shuttle is 150 Croatian kuna. During summer season the transfer from Brsečine departs at 11.15am, 12am and 1.15am and from Bowa at 3.30pm, 5.15pm and 5.45pm. The most important thing to know if you go with this option is to announce your arrival unless you want to end up waiting unvain because the boat will not go to Brsecine unless it is reserved.

Bowa Dubrovnik transfer

When making a reservation, the restaurant offers also a private luxurious transfer service with BOWA boat. The price of this transfer in both directions is 650 euro and it is paid in cash, and the maximum capacity of the boat is 12 persons. The boat transfer takes 35 minutes in one direction and has a fixed timetable: the departure from the Old Port Dubrovnik marina or Gruz marine is at 11.30am and the departure from Bowa is at 5.15pm.
