Lopud

"Island in the Middle"

Lopud is a small island off the coast of Dalmatia, southern Croatia. Lopud is one of the Elaphiti Islands, and can be reached by boat from Dubrovnik, Trsteno, Orašac and Zaton. The island is famous for its sandy beaches, in particular the bay of Šunj. Lopud is the second largest island of the Elaphiti islands,between Koločep and Šipan. Economically the most developed island of the Elaphiti is famous as the "island in the middle". Lopud, the only settlement, is located in a bay from where there is a path that leads to the sandy Bay of Sunj on the far side of the island. Lopud was more settled in the past than it is today. The chronicles tell us of how it had 2 monasteries, 30 churches and a significant number of summer manors and palaces at the end of the XVI century, of which only a small portion remains. Touristically, Lopud is the most developed island in the Elaphite archipelago, and the settlement of Lopud is one of the most frequented of island places.
