What shall I see

Visit the island group consisting of 13 islands called Elaphiti near Dubrovnik. The Elaphiti are often called Deer Islands since their name comes from the Greek word “elaphos” meaning deer. Some say it’s because the islands have a shape formed like a deer while others say it’s because of the fact that these animals used to inhabit them. The island nearest to Dubrovnik called Koločep (or Kalamota as its residents like to call it) together with Šipan and Lopud forms a group of three biggest islands in archipelago and the only inhabited ones. Koločep is a great tourist attraction popular for delicious seafood, long sandy beaches, charming cafes and natural pathways through pine woods. There's also a lot of historical buildings to see like churches dating back to the 9th century. If you want to experience joys of the sea, discover hidden coves and bays on the other side of the island and spend your day swimming and sunbathing in nature. Another amazing thing you’ll see is the Blue Cave, a place only reachable by boat where you’ll enjoy the mesmerizing colors of the Adriatic Sea. The best thing about this tour is that you can use our GoPro camera to capture all these amazing sights.

The other island in the group, Lopud, has been a famous vacation spot from the old days as patricians used it to build their summer villas in the time of Dubrovnik Republic. The island is beautifully adorned by evergreen trees and Mediterranean citrus gardens making it look like an island from a fairytale. You can choose if you wish to spend your time on the beach or sightsee around the island. You can visit the Franciscan monastery built in 1483 around which is a tower used for protection accompanied by stone walls. Next, you’ll see the Church of Our Lady of Šunj where you can spend the time by viewing valuable and unique art works. Another spectacular sight is Fort Španjola built in 1653. where you can see the remains of Illyrian culture in dug up pottery works. In the end, relax on the beautiful Šunj beach and its untouched nature while refreshing yourself in the sea that’s knee-deep even 100 meters from the coast. There are lots of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy food and drinks for a memorable day by the Adriatic sea.

The last stop is the island Šipan recognizable by its serene nature where you’ll see two renaissance palaces owned by the famous family Skočibuha in the place called Suđurađ. We can even organize a tasting where you can try some of the best homemade olive oils and wines along with other delicacies. On the way back we’ll stop at the small islet called Sikirica where you’ll have a chance to swim and dive by the pebbled beaches.

Itinerary

10:00
First stop
Our first stop is the southernmost inhabited island in Croatia, Koločep, locally known as Kalamota. It is the first of three large Elaphiti Islands, and the closest to Dubrovnik (0.6 miles away). Alluring pristine blue waters surround this small and tame island. “No cars and no rush” is the life motto of the local residents, as you will notice the minute we arrive. We will visit one of the Koločep’s landmarks, the Blue Cave, which can only be accessed by swimming. With complimentary use of our GoPro camera, you will have the opportunity to capture lifetime memories.
13:00
Second stop
Our next destination is island Lopud, famous for one of the best sandy beaches in the Dubrovnik area, called Šunj. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to fully experience a hot and idle summer day you have been longing for a long time! You can choose to stay on the speed boat and get some tan, have complimentary drinks and fruits, or go ashore and explore the island. If you wish, we can also make arrangements for a light lunch in one of the best restaurants on the island. “No cars and no rush” motto applies here, too.
16:00
Third stop
The last island we’ll visit on our private Elaphite Islands tour is Šipan, the largest and most densely populated among the Elafiti islands. Distinguished by the untouched nature, turquoise blue sea, green olive and pine trees, discreet birds chirping, … it is truly a place of serenity. In a small seaside place Suđurađ, there are two renaissance palaces of the famous ship-owning family Skočibuha. Locals are dedicated to production of the home-made goods, such as wine, olive oil, marmalade, fruits, vegetables… So, if you wish we can organize wine and olive oil tasting.
