Slap Sopota - Details
A short walk takes you to a 62 meter high waterfall. It drops from a beautiful rock face covered with vegetation. The pool is surrounded by large boulders in a picturesque green area. This is a place to come to rest and recharge your batteries.

When driving out of Poljubinj, you come across the parking of Slap Beri. Continue driving on this small road for about 6 kilometers. You will drive through Ljubinj, pass some first houses of Podmelec later and 1 kilometer after those houses, about 500 meters before entering the Podmelec village, there is a parking on the right.
On the opposite site is a large wooden sign for Slap Sopota.
