Hundreds of years ago, Lopud was the well-kept secret of Dubrovnik’s aristocratic set.

It all feels remarkably like stepping back in time.

Sunj Beach is famous around these parts for its dusty, soft sand and shallow waters. In fact, all around the island you’ll find pockets of golden grains, sheltered on all sides by sun-dappled forests and picturesque cliffs. To see them, wander the coastline on foot for a few hours.
