Sunj beach is a beautiful beach, tucked away in a quiet cove of Lopud island. It is a sandy beach (which is rare in Dubrovnik) with pristine clear water. This beach is great for everyone, with a gentle incline before reaching deeper water.
There are plenty of facilities to make your stay more comfortable, such as sun loungers and parasols, showers, toilets and changing rooms.
There is also space for those who prefer to relax free-of-charge on the sand but beware this beach can get busy in high season. There are bars and cafés serving a range of drinks and food.
To reach Lopud island, catch a local boat from Gruz port which runs several times a day in both directions. This boat will drop you off at the port of Lopud. If your would like to stay on the island, check out great and affordable places here.
Sunj beach is situated on the opposite side of the island. You can walk from Lopud port to Sunj following a hilly path though the forest (you will need around 25-30 minutes) or take a buggy ride for €3 per person.
