On the other side of the main port of Lopud, there is the bay of Šunj.
It is a proper beach, with incredibly hot sand and a restaurant/bar, and for that reason usually very crowded.
There are 2 main ways to get there: either for few kunas getting a taxi, some sort of vehicle which resemble a big golf cart, or simply walking. As I wanted to visit the island first and then get to the island, I decided to walk.
The only suggestion I would give if you are going in the afternoon: bring water!
This is the view of the town of Dubrovnik during sunrise. I really like the really warm colour the whole Old Town gets during this part of the day.
It certainly took some initiative, as I had to wake up quite early, in order to be in the right spot with the right light. But at the end it was totally worth it.
On my way to the chosen location, I noticed that, just like me, even the town itself was slowly waking up from the just passed night. Streets almost empty, which is a very strange view when used to the constantly coming and going platoons of tourists, starting to populating with people in their early jobs: some of them moving around boxes and packages, some other cleaning around and some other just carrying bread to the nearest bakeries.
Although it is seems hard to wake earlier than usual, sometimes it is just worth it.
