ABOUT THE ISLANDS
Elaphite islands tour, together with Old Town City Walls is the most popular tour to do when in Dubrovnik. The Elaphiti Islands or the Elaphites is a small archipelago consisting of several islands stretching northwest of Dubrovnik. The Elaphites have a total land area of around 30 square kilometres (12 square miles) and a population of 850 inhabitants. The name comes from the Ancient Greek word for deer (Doric: ἔλαφος; elaphos), which used to inhabit the islands in large numbers. Only the three main islands are permanently inhabited: Koločep, Lopud and Šipan… And you’re about to visit them!

The Island Šipan is the bigest island, and it is in the Guiness book of the records by bigest number of olive trees on one island. It is historically very interesting. During the 15th century it was a chic summer getaway for the very best Dubrovnik’s families, many of whom built villas on the island. There’s late-Gothic Rector’s Palace and ruins of archbishop’s palaces. In Suđurađ, where is our port, you will find many fishermans familys who stayed on the island and kept their tradition for all thoose years. The reason for that is that island is farest from town so tourism didn’t commercialized it. You will see how people are truly living on the islands. Many small and big fishing boats, old stone houses and children selling seashells in the port. In Suđurađ is the castle of the wealthy Stjepović-Skočibuha, family from Dubrovnik, dating from the 16th century. Next to it is a tower built as a defense against pirates.
