"Lopata, the islet near Sakarun" Dugi Otok Off The Beaten Path Tip by picek
Dugi Otok Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 16 photos
This tiny flat islet is called 'the showel' in Croatian; it's connected with rest of Dugi ototk with pebbled stripe of land (to explain that word combination better I added a few photos below) which actually make it for small peninsula and it takes good 10 minutes walk from Sakarun beach before you reach it.
The pebbles here are some of the loveliest I've seen on the island and it is nice swimming spot here on the quieter side of a gulf, while the other side of pebbled stripe is exposed towards open sea. This means stronger waves and current, and that sadly dispose more trash to its shores.
Here, on pebbles there's no shade so best time to swim here is late afternoon.
The islet/peninsula itself is covered with low pine trees and mostly rocky.
