Croatia's best sandy beaches


Lopud island
Sunj Beach

One of the most beautuful beaches in Croatia is situated on a small, car-free island of Lopud. Lopud, northwest of Dubrovnik, is a part of the Elafiti islands and Kolocep and the most developed tourist place on Elafiti. There are fourteen islands in the Elafiti group. The larger and more important islands in the group are Kolocep (1.35 km2), Lopud (4.63 km2), Sipan (16.5 km2), Jakljan (3.45 km2) and Olipa (0.8 km2). Only three of them are inhabited (Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan), with a total of about one thousand inhabitants.
There is only one settlement on the island, Lopud, situated at the end of Lopud Cove. Boats for Lopud and other Elafiti Lopudislands are leaving from Dubrovnik's Gruz harbor. It is a nice 20 minutes sail.
There is only one settlement on the island, Lopud, situated at the end of Lopud Cove, where one can stay in private rooms and apartments, as well as two hotels. A valley with tropical fruit, vine and olives stretches through the middle of the island. Village itself has a small sandy beach.
Sunj beachBeautiful reddish sand beach is located in the wide horse shoe bay of Sunj (Šunj). The bay is accessible from Lopud village on the island by a 1-km long footpath and is overlooked by the Church of Our Lady of Sunj. The bay is almost round with a narrow entrance, totally filled with white sand and gets deeper only very slowly.
This beach is for those who prefer long sandy beaches. First half of the beach is for textile sunbathers and second part is for naturists. Sunbeds and beach umbrellas for hire are aveilable. Sunj Bay sandy beach is ideal for a swim and traditional local ball game called "Picigin" (volleyball played in knee-deep water with an egg-size ball).
Another small sandy beachs is placed in the village by the harbour.
Lopud is ideal for anyone seeking peacefull and tranquil holiday, as well as an unforgettable day trip from Dubrovnik.
