Welcome to Elafiti Islands

Elafiti Islands

A popular excursion from Dubrovnik is a day trip to the offshore islands of Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan, which are part of a larger archipelago northwest of Dubrovnik; they are the only inhabited islands in the group and the most popular for visitors. The islands are an escape from the mainland crowds and boast olive groves and orchards, sand and pebble beaches, 15th-century summer residences and several interesting churches and monasteries. Kolocep is the smallest and closest island to Dubrovnik, covered in green vegetation; Lopud is the most visited and is famed for its stretch of sandy beach at Sunj; while Sipan was the summer getaway for aristocratic families in Dubrovnik and is more interesting from an historical point of view.
