In the past days Lopud was the place of origin for many sailors and captains that served the Republic of Dubrovnik. One of those captains was Miho Pracat. The peak of prosperity for Lopud was at 15th century when it was occupied by more than a thousand inhabitants, compared to only 220 villagers today; back at 15th century Lopud was in charge of more than 80 sea vessels and a shipyard. The island has a daily boat access to Dubrovnik City and it is the second in its size, yet it is the least populated island in Dubrovnik area. Lopud has two other inhabited islands within its perimeter, yet it has the most preserved nature out of the three islands and is popular for its amazing sandy beaches. While visiting Lopud, guests can enjoy some trekking activity via a narrow passage between two hills, or relax on the white sandy beach called "Sunj" while renting the lovely beach umbrellas and lounge chairs available on the beach. The Sunj beach is situated in the southeast part of the island and provides a perfect vacation area for families with kids, as well as young people who like playing ball games. The beach is a favorite for both foreign tourists and Dubrovnik citizens, who can travel from their city to the beach by spending only 45 minutes of their time. The true grace of the beach is in its sandy ford that spreads for hundreds of meters, starting on the coast line, where you can see the sea surface, and ending in the pine wood on the other side. If you get hungry while enjoying your vacation on the beach, you can have a delicious meal at one of the two restaurants located nearby.
