In the early evening, a majestic samba promenade passes through the streets of Lopar, moving slowly towards the beach. There is a stage where everyone takes part: samba dancers showcase their costumes and dance, capoeira masters fight and Zumba dancers keep dancing…
If Copacabana seems out of the reach, our Paradise Beach is not and while attending our Festival of Samba, you will hardly notice the difference.
There is no entrance fee to the Festival of Samba.
Since the building material is just sand and water, these artistic creations are perishable by nature and therefore more precious.
There are two competitions that add zest to the Festival – best sculpture contest and best photography contest, where both artists and audience vote for the winner. On the last day of Festival of Sand Sculptures, the winning sculpture is declared and the winning photograph featuring Lopar sand is awarded.
Lopar offers daily half-day boat trips with a glass bottom in the waters of Lopar and Goli Otok and Grgur.
