Croatia's best beach promenades


Lopud island

The Elafiti islands with the beautiful, sandy beaches, are approx. 20 minutes by boat from Dubrovnik. There are fourteen islands in the Elafiti group. Only three of them are inhabited (Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan).
The island of Lopud, second largest in the archipelago, is situated 7nm north of Dubrovnik and can be reached by a boat from the new Dubrovnik's harbour Gruz at 10am during high season (June to August). Off season ferries operate only in the afternoon. Lopud is a car free island.
In the northwest there is a settlement with the same name, and in the southeast a unique sunny cove called Sunj.
A beautiful seaside promende in Lopud town stretches from harbour 'till belvedere from which magnificent view spreads over Mljet and Sipan islands.
LopudWith the exception of some bikes, there is no traffic on the island. The village is composed of a long boulevard around the bay. The side-streets soon become stairways. The island is very green because of its freshwater wells and is suitable for nice short strolls. Also, there is a beautifully designed park, formerly it was the garden of an villa from the 19th century. The park is protected by small stone lions.
There are nice strolls possible on the island. On the roads or through fields of wild blackberries, climbing over rocks and gliding hill down in the watercourses.
A stroll acrros the whole island from Lopud to miraculously lovely beach Sunj accross the siland, with its reddish sand and always calm sea, the colours of which shimmer from golden yellow to dark blue, will make your break here quite unforgettable. And you can find gorgeous sandy beaches in the village itself, where slender palms will provide a shelter from the heat of the meridional sun, together with the great fragrant magnolia trees and the lush pines of the islands gardens and parks.
