LOPUD is an island with the village bearing the same name and a small harbour in the Elaphite Islands group, northwest of Dubrovnik. It has population of 348 people. The relief is characterized by two parallel limestone crests; the higher, north-eastern crest (216 m) descends abruptly to the sea, so that the north-eastern coast is more difficult to approach.

As an extension of those crests in the north-west stretches a reef called Sveti Mihajlo (St. Michael), and in the south-east the islands of Mali and Veliki Skupio and the islet of Skupio. In the middle of the island is a dolomite valley with olive-groves, vineyards and citrus fruit plantations; its submerged edges form the cove of Lopud in the north-west and the cove of Sunj in the south-east.

From the 11th century, Lopud was attached to the Dubrovnik Republic; from 1457 it was the seat of a principality. In the 15th century the island was settled by the refugees from the areas occupied by the Turks. The inhabitants of Lopud were oriented to seafaring from the early days. In the 16th century they participated with their ships in the invasions of Spanish rulers on Tunisia, Algeria, Portugal and England, so that the saying about the three hundred Vica widows of the fallen seafarers from Lopud became legendary (a poem based on the legend was written by Antun P. Kazali).

Sunj beach is for those who prefer long sandy beaches. First half of the beach is for textile sunbathers and second part is for naturists. But there are some naked people among the dressed ones, and vice versa. It is probably one of the best sand beaches in the region.
