Elaphiti islands are a small archipelago of several islands of which 3 are inhabited.
The name comes from Ancient Greek word Elaphos (deer) which used to inhabit the islands.
On every one, you can find different kinds of beaches, which are luring you into a usual Mediterranean landscape rich in various kinds of flora.
Koločep island, also called Callamotta is the first one you will explore. Interesting historical fact: two members of the Christopher Columbus crew were sailors from Koločep.
While visiting Callamotta, one should definitely go swimming and dive in the Blue cave which is, by many, the most interesting attraction on the island.
Lopud island is a car-free zone full of little beaches, including Šunj beach, a popular one.
Walking through the island you will see fortresses, churches, and monasteries that are housing works of art. We recommend trying seafood on Lopud since they have a lot of marvelous restaurants.
When it goes to Šipan, is the biggest island in this group. Then again it is also the one with the most residents, 930 of them. The island is divided into 2 parts: Suđurađ (San Giorgio) in the east and Šipanska Luka (Porto Gippana) in the west. During exploring the island of Šipan one can run up on 30 different churches, a few monasteries, and 40 summer residents. If hunger gets in your way, Šipan offers a few well-reviewed restaurants where you can refresh yourself and also try our local as well as Mediterranean cuisine.
