Beaches Lopar

Beaches Lopar
Lopar is indeed a SAND PARADISE!  Miles of golden sand has been the trademark of Lopar and island of Rab for years since no other place in the Adriatic Sea is so well endowed with beautiful sandy beaches. Their number and diversity will meet different and the most demanding expectations.

A chain of 22 sand beaches and many more small, picturesque bays and coves, usually with the sandy seabed, surround the Lopar peninsula and the nearby islands. Some of the beaches can be reached by car. Others you will have to discover on foot or by a boat. Chose your destination for the day and get a taxi boat at port Lučica or rent-a-boat.

Beaches of Lopar welcome first swimmers already in May. The sea gets warm quickly in the spring sun, thanks to the shallow sandy seabed, so the swimming season opens early in May and lasts until late October, much longer than in other Adriatic destinations. Shallow waters have another advantage – the safety, especially safety for non-swimmers and kids, which can enjoy a carefree play in the sand and warm shallow sea.

The biggest and the most famous beach of island Rab is definitely the Paradise Beach (known as “Rajska plaža”). A bit less known, but equally popular among our guests are beaches Livačina, Stolac, Sahara, Mel and many others. You can chose between large beaches with full touristic infrastructure (bars and restaurants, deck-chairs and parasols, water sports and other entertainment) and other, smaller and more intimate beaches, sand or pebbles, with less or no touristic infrastructure at all, where you can fully immerse in the nature and merge with the environment.

The Island of Rab has been the pioneer of naturism in the Mediterranean, with English royal family enjoying skinny-dipping in the early 20th century. Lopar has been on board with that trend ever since so nudists have always been welcome here and for their privacy and pleasure there are 3 FKK beaches: Ciganka and Sahara are nudism friendly (FKK allowed) and beach Stolac is nudist exclusive (FKK only).

For physically challenged and for disabled, there are several ramps along the Paradise Beach, for their easier access into the sea.One thing we are sure of is that here you will find a beach to fall in love with and the swimming in our beautiful clear sea will become a treasured experience in your memories. Make sure you don’t stop at the first beach but explore more of them. Start with the Paradise Beach and take the tour to Livačina, Stolac, Sahara, Podšilo, Dubac, Sturič, Ciganka, Sić, Crikvena, Dražica, Mel etc.



Livačina beach
Next to Paradise Beach is another very popular beach called Livačina. You will find refreshment in several restaurants, conveniently scattered among pine trees, where the food is good and the beer is cold.

Beach equipment can be rented, so no need to carry much, but the swimsuit and sunscreen. Livačina is in the same bay as Paradise Beach, however, it is less crowded and more suitable for chilling and relax.

You can get here in your car if you don’t want to bother walking. But take a walk. Enjoy it.

If you are looking for a more intimate beach and peaceful stay on a beach with fewer people around, this is the spot where you need to leave your vehicles and continue on foot towards other beaches of Lopar peninsula. Make sure you wear a hat.

No nudism. No dogs allowed.

Sturič beach
Sturič is one of the most spectacular sand beaches on the north side of the Lopar peninsula, facing island Grgur.

It consists of two gorgeous sand bays which can be reached on foot (5’ walk from a parking spot in pine tree shadows) or by a boat (taxi boat, rent-a-boat). The beach is known for its intact nature and perfectly clear sea, so an unforgettable experience is guaranteed.

Dogs are not allowed.

Nudism is not allowed.
