The British newspaper The Telegraph has published a list of lesser-known European islands recognized as paradise destinations for summer vacations, including two Croatian jewels: the Elafiti island of Lopud and the island of Rab.
For Lopud, the British publication describes it as an island near Dubrovnik with no traffic and highlights its beautiful sandy beaches. They mention that within just an hour's boat ride from Dubrovnik, visitors arrive at the enchanting small harbor of Lopud, adorned with honey-colored houses basking in the sun.
Once the boat leaves the harbor, visitors are immersed in the tranquility of a place inaccessible to cars. A walk through its wooded hinterland leads to Šunj Beach, a crescent-shaped sandy beach with emerald green waters, considered one of the most beautiful in Croatia. Alongside the beach are bamboo-lined terraces and a variety of unpretentious bistros along the coast, serving the freshest lobster at a fraction of the cost compared to other Mediterranean rivieras. This is how Lopud is described in The Telegraph.
