On the Elaphite Island of Lopud, close to Dubrovnik, Sunj Beach offers a tranquil setting amidst deep blue waters, Mediterranean vegetation, and alluring sands with a shallow draught into the sea. Sunj is well-known for requiring visitors to walk up to 100 meters to reach a dept to swim, making the beach a top choice for both adults looking for a paddle without getting wet and families with younger children.
The integrity of this claim can be verified once you experience the picture-perfect views of the picturesque coast framed by a dense pine forest, the emerald beauty of which reflects in the azure sea waters and gives them a truly amazing hue.
Visitors will only be able to participate in water sports like jet skiing and volleyball on Sunj Beach. This beach is suitable for the national beach game, picigin, played exclusively in the shallow water, and has a significant shallow area near the coast (even 100 m from the shore, the water is not deeper than 2 m). Football and volleyball are also widely played here if picigin isn't your thing.
Some people spend the night sleeping on the cozy sand and then continue to take in their surroundings the next day.
Snorkeling in these waters is very interesting because the water is warmer (due to the shallow depths) and especially clear.
Kayaks can be rented for nearshore excursions if you prefer an active form of recreation. You can rent catamarans and kayaks for boat trips close to the coast.
Lopud Island was once a popular destination for the aristocracy to spend their vacations. Because of this, it still has many old villas, cottages, and mansions, and now some of them are renting out apartments.
For instance, you could lease a unit in the historic stone mansion, Villa Franka, which is 1.4 kilometers from Unj Bay Beach.
A guest house is close to the coast (just 0.9 km away).
Beachgoers can diversify their experience on the sand by renting a parasol and a lounge chair, playing volleyball, tennis, picigin, or just relaxing and soaking up the sun. Visitors who are naturists are only allowed in the northern portion of the beach.
On the Sunj Bay beach's northern edge is a nudist area, which is well-equipped for a comfortable stay.
