Šipan, Croatia: the largest of the Elaphiti Islands in Dubrovnik
Join us as we visit the island of Šipan near Dubrovnik, Croatia!
Šipan is one of the largest Croatian islands in the Elafiti (Elaphiti) archipelago group. It is also known as 'Dubrovnik's islands' and situated just off the coast of Dubrovnik. The main port of the island is Sudurad which is connected by road to Sipanska luka, a larger town about 5km away. In between there is a verdant valley composed of olive and fig trees, vineyards, pomegranates and citrus groves. Sipan is also famous for its wine and is very picturesque with a cool atmosphere.
Our first stop in Dubrovnik was Šipan. It’s only an hour by ferry and was a perfect place for rest and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
We stayed at the beautiful Villa Ella, a fully stocked home with an amazing view of the Adriatic Sea. Surrounded by luscious gardens we spent our days hanging by the pool, catching up on school and enjoying meals on the terrace with epic sunsets. Just 5 minutes away in the village of Šipanska luka we were able to find all the groceries and supplies we needed without having to leave the island. Simply amazing! We can't wait to return again one day.
