You arrive on Lopud Island sailing past the large monastery that clings to the headland, to a beautiful old fishing town. Here you meander through the streets or along the promenade and its many cafes and seafront restaurants. It is busy with tourists from the excursion boats that arrive and from the guests of the expensive yachts anchored just off shore, BUT never enough to spoil the place, they just add to the atmosphere.
You can stay on the town side of the island and make the most of the sandy beaches or you can walk one mile through to the other side to another stunning bay and sandy beach. If you are not over loaded with buckets and spades, make the effort as the beach and bar that awaits makes you believe you are in the Caribbean.
The beach bar on your right, as you arrive, offers you a shaded lunch and a beautiful view of the bay and the most amazing whitebait ( “girice” ) all washed down with a “pivo” or a glass of house white wine – it makes you forget your walk!
Nothing else there except for another fabulous sandy beach. One the way back why not treat yourself to one of the Golf Buggies to drop you back to main part of town, they aren’t expensive and what a pleasure after a “hard day”!
