Natural sand beaches
What makes Lopud Island especially attractive touristic place are its sand beaches; two located in the Lopud bay, while the amazing Sunj beach is spreading across the whole Sunj bay on the other side of the island, one third of which is reserved for nudists. It is a perfect place for families with small children, since the knee deep water reaches as far as 100 meters from the coast. There are small caffe bars / fish and chips restaurants placed next to the beach, so you can grab a snack and refreshment any time.
Small private beaches
For those who do not like sand beaches, there are several places in the Lopud bay with flat rocks, where you can lay down on a towel, with an easy access to the crystal clear sea.
A bit of Lopud history
A story says that after noticing how the reefs, rocks and islands scattered northwest of Dubrovnik form a beautiful shape of a deer (Elaphus), the Greeks named them Elaphite Islands. Lopud, being the island placed between the other two inhabited Islands Šipan and Kolocep, was called Insula media, the Middle Island. Even though the Island is only 4 kilometre square large it has been an island of captains providing Dubrovnik Republic with many highly reputed seamen, Miho Pracat probably being the most famous of them. In 15th century Lopud was at one point even greater than Dubrovnik, with more than thousand inhabitants, who owned more than 80 great ships and a shipyard.
The remains of Lopud’s rich past can still be seen in aristocratic summer manors and fortifications, such as family villa and the remains of a gothic duke’s castle. The strength and greatness of the Catholic Church on Lopud throughout the history can be easily seen simply by visiting one of more than thirty churches and chapels on the island, some of them dating from early-medieval times. There are also Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, with many valuable art works of Pietra da Giovanni, Nikola Bozidarevic, Girolama da Santacroce and many others.
