Our first stop is Lopud, traditionally island of Dubrovnik seamen and captains, famous for its sandy beaches, Franciscan monastery, early-medieval architecture and the beautiful Arboretum. We have almost 4 hours to explore this island and its most famous beach – Šunj, only 20 minutes away from the boat stop and ideal for children and water sports. The island has a small grocery & souvenir shop, postal office, ATM – but no motorized vehicles!
After lunch, we make a small stop at Suđurađ port on Šipan, the largest of the Elaphiti islands. During the XV century many aristocratic Dubrovnik families built summer manors on Šipan. You get to visit the amazing Skočibuha castle fortified by two towers built to repel the pirates of the times. There is enough time to taste the renowned Šipan wine, or enjoy coffee and ice-cream.
The third island on our cruise is Koločep. We will spend somewhat over 1 hour at this, smallest settled island in the Elaphite Archi
