We didn't have much time to visit both villages on Sipan, but first one was very nice. It is a small fishing village. The hosts from sailboat that we rented advised us to order local fish in a restaurant and to tell you the truth, I never had such a tasty fish. I'll definitely come back

This island was not originally on our itinerary but while trying to avoid a storm we ended up docking at their protected port. It was one of my favorite ports of the trip because it was just a small fishing harbor with local fishermen coming in during the evening in their small boats with their catch of the day, other...

Sipan offers a lot of charm. Easy to mingle with the locals and access to the cafes and fishermen. Beautiful.

I love coming to Sipan. It is "the Mediterranean as it used to be". In it's take it easy style, certainly not a place for night life, all you can do is relax and enjoy. I love eating Kod Marka in Sipanska Luka and just walking around. It is not a destination for travelers who are looking for activities. I... More

We decided not to take the tourist boats and took the boats that the locals take between the Islands... We found this to be much more 'real', great fun and gave us plenty of time to look around the various Islands and have lunch...

We spent 2 days and nights in Sipanska Luka and three would have been too much. It's very small and quiet and nothing happens, so it might be good after a nervous breakdown. Only one small beach, about 3 restaurants and 3 bars, one hotel. Everything was a bit run down (not the hotel Sipan, though)

Arrival by small boat from Dubrovnik is great - do get details of all the available boat trips to other nearby islands because apart from swimming (beautiful clear water) and dining there is not much else to see or do here. Inland walks are interesting as there appear to be no proper maps and signposting somewhat erratic!

We really appreciated this stop on our gulet cruise because the port is less touristy than other islands. The restaurant Konoba Kod Marka is excellent, but reservations are advised as some disappointed visitors have found.
