We visited as part of the 3 island tour and were given only 30 minutes ashore! This clearly gives no time to investigate the history and beauty of the island. The locals were very friendly in the short time we were there. It would be unfair to mark down due the limit of time.

We were here just for an hour as a part of our cruises on the island, but we managed to visit the old fortified church which is one of a kind. Also have a look down in one out of two city centers on the island. Its worth the visit, but not for more then a couple of hours. Interesting... More

Day trip from Dubrovnik with Jadrolinija ferry. Went here for hiking, but the trails were in a bad condition at some places and we saw a snake (not the poisonous one this time), so we ended up just walking the paved roads from town to town. The routes to beaches outside the towns were also in bad condition so we... More

Stayed for 5 days at hotel sipan which has an ATM. Lovely hotel with comfortable clean rooms and friendly helpful staff.Sipanska Luka is a harbour with 4 restaurants and 2 bars which get their business from the hotel but mainly from the island hopping yachts that moor at night. Great place for a total switch off holiday. It is possible... More

Home to several artists, pristine ambient and great vistas abound. Come in on a smaller boat and take to me sailing around e is land...sit in a quite "konoba" (simple restaurant) for some basic food. Stay away from the port as it typically provides for cheap touristy establishments..

We anchored at Luka on Sipan island for 1 night. It was a highlight of our trip. The bay was clean and the water was crystal clear. Our boys swam for hours. We went ashore and a local man helped us to moor our dingy and said he would kobe if for us if a bigger boat arrived. There was... More

We went here for my 60th birthday as a day trip from Lopud. We arrived at the harbour and got on the bus to take to the other side of the island. What a delightful place. A natural harbour with a curved promenade with cafes and a wonderful seafood restaurant. A cement path takes you to a lovely little stony... More

We were only here for about 40 minutes as part of our tour of three Elaphiti Islands. And I would say that is about the right amount of time to spend here. Sipan (pronounced Shipan) has some friendly locals trying to sell shells and some beautiful lace, but apart from that there is very little to see here. I appreciate... More

People are so friendly on Sipan Island. We wished we had more time for cycling because it is perfect for bikers - hardly any cars around! We had a fantastic experience with kayaking there so it was worthy going.

The people are grumpy and unwelcoming, there isn't much of anything to do and while the views are pretty they're also crowded and not worth more than a couple of hours.
