Our third day in Croatia was spent visiting the island of Lopud and enjoying the ultimate beach day! Our morning started out with a bus ride to Gruz Habor, where we ate breakfast before taking the Jadrolinjia Ferry to Lopud. After the 1 hour ferry ride, we took a stroll down Lopud's lovely waterfront, and began a short 30-minute walk to Sunj Beach. According to our server at breakfast, a lot of people in Croatia go to Lopud for holiday specifically for Sunj Beach. Since most of the beaches in Croatia are either rocky or pebbly, Sunj Beach with its soft white sand is quite a treat!
Once we arrived at Sunj Beach, Clay and I rented an umbrella and a couple of beach chairs for the day. There were portable changing stations set up, which made things convenient. There were also a couple of outdoor beach bar/ restaurant establishments for when we got hungry (note: do not order hamburgers). We definitely just enjoyed relaxing and lounging on our beach chairs for a whole day. It was so nice to just rest, watch boats come in and out of the harbor, and nap for however long we wanted. We also saw a couple of dads playing picigin (a traditional Croatian ball game) with their sons in the water. As for the actual beach, it was shallow and calm -- great for a relaxing dip in the water.
Just capturing as I go.
