Župa dubrovačka is a valley, a group of towns and a municipality of Dubrovnik-Neretva County in western Croatia. It has 6,663 inhabitants, 93% which are Croats.

Župa dubrovačka stretches between Dubrovnik, the old Ragusa in the west and Cavtat, the ancient Epidaurus in the east, between the settlements of Dubac and Plat. The three islands Supetar, Mrkan and Bobara anchored right in front of the bay protect it from the open sea and from the north the hilly slopes of the Upper Župa. The rich diversity in such a narrow area offers a memorable experience whether you are after the turquiose limpid sea and secluded coves or rich fields and picturesque hamlets or simply a holiday. Pretty tourist resorts are clustered along the coast.
