The readers of the popular British newspaper The Guardian have chosen the Sunj Beach on the island of Lopud as one of the top beaches in the world. According to a recently published article in The Guardian Travel section entitled “The 50 best beaches in the world,” this Dubrovnik island is the nineteenth top beach in the world.
“Sandy beaches are outnumbered by pebbly ones in Croatia, but the car-free island of Lopud, a 40-minute ferry ride from Dubrovnik, is the exception. Locals ferry visitors in golf buggies from the port to Sunj beach, a 1km strip of sand sloping gently into limpid, shallow waters on the island’s south coast,” writes The Guardian.
The unique Sunj beach isn’t the only Croatian beach in the top fifty, the Jagodna Bay beach on the island of Hvar, near Split, comes in at 36th position.
At the top of the list was the impressive Source d’Argent beach in the Seychelles.
