Lapad peninsular is within easy each of the old town and is a cooler less busy place to stay. A good, but seriously overcrowded bus service takes you into town, running every ten minutes.

The beach is a bit rocky (I like sandy beaches better) but they have a nice promenade with many restaurants, bars and the like. There was live music every night in multiple locations (when I was there, which is high season). It is a great place to relax after a day in the old city.

Walking from the Aristo along what is called the promenade you come to Lapad. Big super market there and some great bars and restaurants. View on the way is fabulous. Dinning along there at night is magical. A piece of advice about trips. There is a guy selling boat trips and everything else at the end of the water near... More

Lapad beach itself is pebbly and a bit crowded, but its clear, calm waters make it ideal for families with young children. There are parasols and sunloungers for hire and a number of cafes are dotted along the bay. Unfortunately for some (me included) a lot of them had music pounding which I found a bit annoying but then I'm... More

If you're after a sophisticated and romantic holiday then Lapad can cater for this with the extraordinary scenery, classic Adriatic sunsets and seafront restaurants...... Or if you're after a quiet family holiday with young or older children then Lapad offers an array of relaxing options from the beach at Lapad bay or over the hill in Gruz harbour. The range... More

I like to stay in Lapad because it is close to a good beach, playgrounds, restaurants. It is calm at night and is fairly easy to get to the Old Town by bus.

A lovely beach, not sandy. Lots of lovely places to eat and drink. The sea is very clear. The people are very friendly. Lots of activities to keep you busy.

Go to the cliffs as an alternative. You will need to wear something on your feet for the sharp rocks.
