Sail to the Elafiti Islands near Dubrovnik

Koločep landscape
Enjoy a scenic sailing trip to the stunning Elafiti Islands, also known as the Elaphite Islands, set just off the coast of Dubrovnik. The Elaphite is an archipelago consisting of six islands plus numerous smaller islets. The three main islands include Koločep, Lopud, and Šipan. In total, the islands host only a little over 1,000 residents, and two of the islands (Koločep and Lopud) are car-free.

Youʼll have plenty of time to swim, snorkel, and relax on the boat, visiting quiet bays, coves, and inlets. Lopud is known for its idyllic beaches, whereas Koločep is famed for its history. It once hosted an important shipbuilding industry during the Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovnik) and has seven churches from the 9th to the 11th century. Enjoy lunch on one of the islands and take some time to explore the small towns.
