Spent just about 45 minutes on this island as part of an Elafiti Islands day cruise. More time is needed to fully explore this island. It is the only one of the 3 Elafiti where cars are allowed and there is a public bus to take you from one end (port city) to the other. Known for olive oil.

This, the largest of the Elafiti islands dates at least from the 1300's. It is very quiet and as far as sightseeing goes there are a few old buildings and about three little shops. Fewer than 500 people live here. Grapes, olives, figs and citrus fruit grows here. We visited as part of a three island boat trip.

We visited this island via kayak. We stopped for lunch at a waterfront restaurant that served fresh fish. There are a few small shops. Not much here, but it's a great example of everyday life being lived on an island in Croatia!

This a place to come to if you just wish to read a book on the beach and take walks around the island.

We went on the three island boat trip which stopped at Sipan. Ok the boat trip was fantastic and views and sights amazing but where the boat pulled in and left us for 2 hours was quiet boring and not much to see unless you like looking at churches only.

visited as part of a three island trip. Scenic but not much to do. Most of the boats stop here for lunch on board. a couple of cafes and gift shops. A monastry and closed church.

I visited the island on a day trip. The main town Sudurad is very pretty but very small. To really enjoy this island you need to spend some more time on it to walk away form the main town.

We went on a trip to see this lovely location - spending a bit of time in a relaxing bar We followed advice we had seen and took the ferry to get to the island and then jumped on a local bus to cross the island Return tickets were so cheap we thought we must have bought single trip tickets... More

Very quiet, only a few restaurants and bars to choose from. Restaurants are very much fish orientated, well presented and clean. Lovely little village, perfect for a few days.
