lopud_croatia_hotel_lafodijaPhoto of Sunj Beach, a popular sandy beach on Lopud Island, Elaphiti Islands, Dalmatian Coast, Croatia. This is a photo of Sunj beach, a popular sandy beach on Lopud Island in the Elaphiti Island archipelago. The Elaphiti Islands are situated just a short boat crossing from Dubrovnik on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. For its quiet, rustic villages, quaint cathedral and the inviting, blue, crystal clear Adriatic Sea, visiting Lopud Island, one of the three main islands in the Elaphiti Islands makes for a fantastic day trip from Dubrovnik. Lopud is the second largest Elaphiti Island, and thanks to the beautiful waterfront, Catholic cathedral and Sunj Beach (a sandy beach on the south side of Lopud Island), most tourists find it the best Elaphiti Island to visit.
