The sandy beach of Sunj Bay on Lopud’s southern side is the most popular beach of the Dubrovnik area. However this island’s true treasures are its tiny churches and a fort strategically located at one of its highest points. In the past it served as an observation point and was used to protect the island’s safety. Today it offers stunning views of the Elaphiti Archipelago and Mljet Island.
