TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Elaphite archipelago consists of 13 islands, of which only three are inhabited: Koločep, Šipan, and Lopud. Each island is surprisingly different and unique and on this tour, you’ll have free time to explore all of them!

  • Your Dubrovnik Boat Trip starts with a pick up from your hotel and a short drive to the port of Gruž, where you’ll board a boat for the excursion!

  • The first stop is Lopud Island - 3 hours

  • The most popular island in the Elaphite archipelago, due to its amazing beach Šunj - the ONLY SANDY BEACH in Dubrovnik region which is listed by many travel guides as one of the best beaches in Croatia. The water is very shallow, perfect for children and the popular local game picigin. Lopud is the favorite weekend place for the locals to escape the crowds of the Old Town. Lopud Island has one of the oldest botanical gardens in the region.

  • Fun fact: According to a local legend, if you bathe with your loved one at Šunj, you’ll never separate...

  • Lopud is car-free, therefore nothing interrupts the tranquility of this peaceful oasis. Lopud Island was a favorite place for the summer residence of the local aristocracy, and it abounds with forts, little churches, and monasteries.

  • The second stop is Šipan Island - 2 hours

  • The largest of the Elaphite Islands. Known for the quiet bays, beaches, cypress and fig trees, groves of oranges, and vineyards.

  • Here you have a chance to taste local gastronomy! At the Captain's house you will be served a six-course lunch and meet his cheerful, welcoming family who will take good care of you. Lunch includes homemade dalmatian ham (prosciutto) and cheese, chicken soup, mussels prepared the Dalmatian way, the main course for which you can choose between fish, pork or chicken, freshly caught grilled fish with mashed potatoes and a salad.
