Deciding to visit Dubrovnik town, Pearl of Adriatic, hottest destination in Croatia is always remarkable idea. If you are bored just going on beaches then Elaphiti islands is ” THING TO DO ” .
We are all very excited when it comes to vacations,especially ones on the sea. Planning how to spend your days and where to go, sometimes, can be little bit complicated to do.
I will guide you trough some important facts and help you to make you choice simpler.
HOW CAN I GET TO ELAPHITI ISLANDS ?
There are 3 ways to come on islands.
First one would be ferry.
Yes, it is cheapest one but you can’t go whenever you want it. Always there is plenty of people and it goes 2- 4 times a day. Tickets prices are between 20 – 40 kuna but you need twice more time to come on desired place then with regular speedboat.
Second option would be my favourite. Rent a private boat or water taxi .
WHY I PREFER IT?
It is much more faster, comfortable and enjoyable.
In one day, you can make full tour of all islands .
Prices are higher but also depending on the type of boat. Skipper can take and show you the best places, such as hidden ones, you can’t reach going by ferry.
If adrenaline is your friend and boats are to slow for you, I recommend renting a jet ski.
Exploring is so much more amusing and getting there will be quick as lightning.
WHAT CAN I SEE & DO ON ELAPHITI ISLANDS?
Mentioning all the ways how to get on islands it reveals you, in fact, what you can see.
Ferry leaves you on island and you are on your own. With private tours, capturing a good sunset location is easy or snorkeling in hidden caves to is far more fascinating then doing the same on the beach.
Island are full of little beaches, quiet lagoons and local restaurants. Regardless you are beach type or explorer, selections are phenomental. From seeing historical churches and monasteries to enjoying in stunning rocky or sandy beaches with crystal clear sea.

… WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU?
From my personal experience i would advise you to not go without:
big towel, bathing suit and money.
Big heats require large amounts of suncreams. Make sure you not burn in the sun. I would say trips are nice but memories are better. Do not forget your go pro camera or phone so you record all your moments.
Of course bring sunglasses.
