The other sand beach is in front of the remains of the Grand Hotel on Lopud. Also popular because of the hotel's park, which provides plenty of shade and spots to relax and enjoy your day. The beach is located in the middle of Lopud Bay, stretching along the hotel's beautiful park.

Restaurants and bars can be found in the vicinity, but the tradition among locals is to enjoy a picnic under one of the high palm trees. Don't be surprised if you smell roasted chicken and fresh paprika on a hot Sunday afternoon.
