Visited here as part of a boat trip from Dubrovnik with Elite Tours, Sipan is simply beautiful. The harbour is perfectly suited to swimming and water-sports, and the island interior (what we saw, it was a flying visit) was quiet and unspoilt.

The scenery is stunning the people friendly and the atmosphere is so relaxing. there are about 6 good resturants and 3 or 4 little bars which is more than adaquate. for... More

We stayed at Sipanska Luka, the second village of the island, which is a 15 minute bus ride or about forty minutes walk from the port where the ferries go. Several lovely restaurants and a small beach there too, as well as the Hotel Sipan. Be aware that none of the restaurants , shops or cafes take plastic ! There... More

Not the nicest island I've ever been dropped at because where you are let off the ferry is a collection of fairly unnattractive old buildings. As with the other Islands the waters around it are ideal for swimming although one of our party was stung by something and required first aid. We wouldn't rush back, only found one bar cafe... More

We had a brief stopover here in August 2016. The marina is quaint with its bars and restaurants around the bay. There's enough shade to keep you cool in summer. We noticed that people choose this island for longer stays. I'm not sure if there's enough to do for a week or so, but for a brief visit it's perfect... More

We loved Sipanska Luka and would definitely go again. We stayed in the Hotel Sipan (see separate review). There are 6 restaurants and we only tried 4 of them. We missed one out as it was located near a drain and there was always a bit of a smell there! The other one was booked up overtime we tried to... More

Stayed at the Hotel Sipan in Sipanska Luka for eleven days. The village is very small and the people were friendly and helpful. There is a regular bus service to the other village on the island. Both the hotel and a local hire shop rent out bicycles and kayaks. A holiday here can be as adventurous or peaceful as you... More
