Šunj beach Lopud
Šunj is a sandy beach located in a beautiful bay on the south side of Lopud island, near Dubrovnik. The water here is especially shallow for 100m, making it perfect for children and people taht aren't strong swimmers.
This makes Sunj the most ideal place to play picigin in the Dubrovnik area. If picigin isn't your thing, football and volleyball are popular here too. You'll find a bar/ restaurant on this beach that both locals and tourists like to visit. Some even sleep on the comfortable sand overnight, simply carrying on enjoyiing the surroundings in the morning.
Right above the beach is a thick wood where you can take shade from the sun. You can reach Sunj beach two ways. The first option is to take a daytrip boat that will take you directly to the beach, the second is to go by ferry on the regular line from Dubrovnik. The ferry docks on the north side of the island which means you'll have a 20 minute walk through beautiful woods to reach the beach. The ferry leaves Dubrovnik in the morning, making its return in the evening and as such we highly recomemnd a day trip to theis island of beautiful nature.
