Elaphiti Islands, Dubrovnik

4.2
#3 of 9 in Nature in Dubrovnik
Experience the easygoing Adriatic life as you explore the hilly terrain of Elaphiti Islands. Pliny the Elder named the archipelago Elaphiti, the Greek word for deer--which used to inhabit the area in large numbers. Take a ferry or a fast passenger boat from Dubrovnik and visit all three major islands. Admire the lush Mediterranean vegetation, including groves of orange and lemon trees. Visit quiet bays, beaches, and the remains of old churches and summer residences. Note that accommodation prices here are a bit cheaper than those in Dubrovnik.
