Ferries depart from Gruz harbour in Dubrovnik and stop first at Kolocep (another Elaphiti island), after which they cruise to nearby Lopud.
Lopud is the second largest island of the Elafiti group of islands, located northwest of the world heritage town of Dubrovnik, with a town of the same name, between the islands of Kolocep and Sipan. This most developed island of the Elafiti is often called Insula Media, which is Latin for the middle island. It has an area of 4.63km, with a residential population of 110.
Two parallel hills are connected by a dolomite valley with the Lopud bay on one end and the Sunj bay on the opposite. The northeast part of the island is inaccessible as it is very steep. Of the island's 11.5 km of coastline 1.2 km are sandy beaches. The highest peak on the island is Polacica, which is 216m high.
The popular Cove of Sunj beach at the a one km walk through the heart of the island and an intriguing cemetery for history enthusiasts, is overlooked by the Church of Our Lady of Sunj, with a cemetery (also with a fine collection of works of art). The small island of Sveti Mihajlo (St. Michael) is situated to the northwest of the island.
Off the main Riva is the Giorgi-Mayneri botanical park, initially established by the Mayneri family and maintained today through the efforts of the local community. In the midst of centennial trees is an oasis of walking paths, stone and wooden benches and sculptures scattered around a fountain pool with gold fish, surrounded by various plant life. Take a sneak preview of the 300 year old pines through La Villa private entrance to this place of nature at its best. You will love it!
