“Disappointing”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Such a shame this beautiful beach is ruined by end to end sun beds crammed in like sardines. The worst part is that 90% of them were unused. Lopud is a lovely island and Sunj beach spectacular. But if you are looking for a refreshing swim after a walk along Lopud's stunning footpaths, you will be pushed to find somewhere to lay your towel.

“Sunj beach is a the crown jewel of Lopud island”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

The walk to the beach is just over 2km long and is a stunning walk (if you have the time and it is not too hot). The path does get quite steep in places and there are a large number of steps once you have crested the island. Be warned. There is a (very) reasonable taxi service in golf cars to take you directly to the beach thus avoiding the walk. We walked as this was our first trip to the island and the beach, but took a taxi ride back to the harbour (and will probably take a taxi in future).

Sunj beach is a revelation... A beautiful sandy beach, crystal clear water that is wonderfully cool on a hot day.

Its definitely worth renting deck chairs and umbrellas to keep you off the sand which gets hellishly hot in the heat of the day. It seems that families go off to the right of the beach, couples and those without kids tend to the centre and left, and naturists to the far left. The man who rents out the chairs and umbrellas is wonderful: friendly and helpful and an absolute gentleman.

The bar, right on the beach, is well-stocked with food and drink and well priced. I had the most incredible grilled calamari for lunch (grilled with lemon and garlic) that, I'm guessing, had probably been caught that morning!

Toilet facilities are available next to the bar and were spotlessly clean (something I've noticed wherever we've been in Durbovnik).

The bay is pretty shallow quite far out and you will need to wade for around 100m to get to water that is swimming depth. The water was cool and refreshing given that the day turned out to be rather warm ;-)

We had a brilliant day out and will definitely be doing so again before we leave Dubrovnik.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Stunning little beach. It's worth the walk from the front at Lopud. Even if you don't walk, get a golf buggy 'taxi' to the beach. We went to the beach 5 times during our week long stay and always went on the right hand side where the guy who rented the sunbeds was a real gentleman. The food in the right had bar was reasonably priced and cheeseburger was huge !!
'Keep enjoying friends!'
