Nice and Relaxing.

Only spent just under an hour on this Island but it was a very nice island and would be great for a relaxing day away from the buzz of the Old Town.

Sipan is the largest of the Elafiti Islands with two small ports Suduraf and Sipanska luka. A bus conects the ports taking a trip through fertile lush interior where the islanders grow grapes, olives, figs, and carob.Great place to visit or short stay on a Robinson Crusoe beach.

We stayed on the island for 3 days and enjoyed one of the most peaceful and relaxing holidays for a long time. Perfect swimming in the sea. We also enjoyed renting a canoe and exploring the coastline as well as exploring the island by bike.

This perfect lazy fishing town is a great day out if all the sunbathing has taken its toll. The restaurants are good & it has some great walks, but not a lot to do or see. The Konobo Kod Marka is th place to go here w amazing Octopus Burgers.

Sipan is a beautifully unspoilt island that is great for cycling. The monastery is definitely worth a visit, a lovely peaceful spot and beautiful building. Bring a picnic and plenty to drink as the island isn't that geared up for tourism, but you should find a bar open even in siesta time where you can get a cold drink!

There are 66 inhabited islands off the Croatian coast. Of The13 Elaphiti Islands Sipan is a little jewel. If you have time to escape the mass of humanity that is Dubrovnik, take one of the frequent ferries and explore the pre-Romanesque churches, local produce, beaches, water activities of Šipan, Lopud and Koločep. Very picturesque, friendly and easy as a day... More

Nice city overall. The beach is small but still gives enough place to swim, just mind the sea cucumbers which are really disgusting.
