Molunat is well known a fishing and tourist settlement in the south 40 km from Dubrovnik. It is connected by bus lines three times a day.
Molunat offers private accommodation in family apartment houses, pensions and camping-sites. There is a post office, a slipway with adjacent berths, a shop offering home grown fruit and vegetables, restaurants,  coffee shops, the diving club and the fishing cooperative.
The name Molunat derives from Illyrian and Greek root (molos - the port) referring to the ancient ports of Mali (Small) and Veliki (Big) 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 herbs, mostly used for medicational purposes. Its indented coastline is full of coves , the two islets with shallow and clear sea with plenty of fish attract many scuba divers and free-diving spear fishers. Molunat is covered by dense macchia, holm-oaks, cypress trees and the pines. Due to the favourable land configuration, the climate is mild, mediterranean with hot summers and refreshing mistral blowing in the afternoon hours.
