Nudist Beaches

Sahara is the most famous naturist beach of Lopar, but don’t worry – if you aren’t keen on going fully nude, you can keep your swimsuit on. Nudism is allowed on Sahara, but not mandatory, so you can still enjoy one of the most beautiful wild beaches, even if you are a bit shy. It would be a pity to miss it.Sahara can be reached by boat or on foot.  A 30’ walk will take you through the thick forest and through sandstone paths, which are an exciting experience alone. The landscape view is spectacular.

The beach is sandy, there are some bushes and a few trees, so it is highly recommended to bring own parasol. Since it is a distant and wild natural beach, there are no bars, so no cold beer either, unless you bring some! Make sure you bring plenty of water and food, as well as other things needed for a full day stay at the beach.

Dogs are not allowed to swim in Sahara beach.


Ciganka (The Gipsy Beach) is one of three nudist beaches of Lopar, facing North, i.e. looking out toward islands of Krk and Grgur. You can reach it on foot or by car, which can be parked in shadows of pine trees. You need to walk down to the beach just for the last 100m. There you will find interesting and unusual sand dunes shaped in pyramids and you can choose whether you prefer lying on the rocks or in the sand. 

For its exposure to bura, local NE wind, Ciganka is also very popular for windsurfing. 

Ciganka is FKK allowed beach, so nudism is not mandatory, clothing is optional. You can enjoy your stay on the beach in your swimsuit if you have to. But you don’t have to. What is highly recommended is to wear sunscreen and if you have to wear something else, you can leave your hat on!

Dogs are not allowed to swim on Ciganka Beach, but you can take it for a swim to the nearby Zad Vele Stene beach. 


Sand beach Stolac is a true naturistic paradise, as it is the only FKK exclusive beach. It is just 10’ walk away from the San Marino Resort. The intact nature paired with naturism allows the visitors to experience a unique immersion into the wild nature, to merge with the sand or with the stone, whatever you chose. The peculiarity of this beach is the nearby islet which can be reached swimming or walking through the shallow water – do not resist the temptation and walk those few hundred feet through the warm sea, become a Robinson and enjoy the desert island experience at least once. 

Dogs are not allowed to swim at Stolac beach.

There is no bar or other infrastructure, so we highly recommend you bring plenty of water, food, beach umbrellas and other equipment for a long stay on the beach.
