Welcome to Lopar
At the northern tip of the island, the beach town of Lopar is semirural around the edges, with garden plots and roses growing in front gardens. It's sleepy even in early June, but in the school holidays Central European families flock here, as the sea is very shallow and perfect for small children. This is particularly so with 1500m-long Paradise Beach on Crnika Bay, right in the centre of town, where you can almost wade across to a little offshore island.
There are 22 sandy beaches bordered by shady pine groves scattered around the peninsula, including Livačina Beach and Sahara Beach.
