Pretty little island

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... read 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

Having kayaker many km we stopped at sipan and had lunch at the ThreevSisters - a short walk around the harbour.. It's a quiet bay - there are two main bays. The party boats do stop there during the day but in the late afternoon and evening it is peaceful as you would expect.

We stayed at the Hotel Bozica in Sudurad Sipan. We were in the little waterside village hamlet of Sudurad every night. Local kids kicked a ball around and the elderly watched on, playing skittles or watching with pleasure from seats around the grassy square, safe, content.There are only a couple of local cafes, one of them a very good fish...

We visited Sipan as part of the 3 island trip (booked direct from the hotel). Sipan was the second island of the trip. The only downside was getting just 45 minutes for the visit. We found a family who were making their own Sipan Red Wine, so naturally we bought a bottle. Beautiful!!!

We spent the day in Dubrovnik. We took the bus in which stopped directly outside our hotel. It was reasonable and took approximately an hour changing once for the final bit to the old part.

Even though there are tourist boats going here every day, the island still remains authentic with a Croatian atmosphere. The water is absolutely amazing - very clear.
