  • A most beautiful unspoilt island.
  • Little island with just 2 towns loads of olive trees and no cars. Great for a quick stop on a sailing holiday.
  • Really relaxing holiday destination
  • Beautiful and peaceful island, haven of peace. Close to Dubrovnik is a group of small islands, which since the ancient Greeks have called Elafiti (deer Islands). In the deep cove of the largest island Šipan (Šipan) is the typical Dalmatian town Šipanska Luka. The inhabitants of this village, away from tourist routes major, live by their former pace. The myths, the rich history of the island of aristocracy, the summer residence of Dubrovnik landed aristocracy, the dense Mediterranean vegetation, crystal clear water, even on summer nights, make the perfect environment for the escape of the pace and stress of life in the city. The proximity of Dubrovnik (about an hour by local boat or ten minutes to launch the coast village Slano) makes possible all day frequent historical monuments of culture in Dubrovnik and its surroundings.
