What to see and do

This small, car-free island is absolutely perfect for those wanting to get away from it all, seeking to spend a peaceful few days or week having a holiday in the sun. You can also enjoy your time walking the island’s paths through its lush vegetation (especially to walk to Sunj bay to spend an afternoon there), and it’s also possible to rent bikes to navigate the paths or kayaks to spend some time doing something a little more active! (Ask locally about bike/kayak hire.)

There are a few sights on the island as well, including a number of churches from the 15th and 16th centuries. The remains of the Rector’s Palace and the ruins of a Fortress are worth a peek; there’s also a Monastery that overlooks the village of Lopud which was built in the 15th century.
