A group of 13 islands is located in the south of Croatia, northwest of
Dubrovnik, surrounded by the island of Mljet, the Peljesac peninsula
and the Mljet and Kolocep channel. The name of the archipelago is
believed to come from Greek, specifically the word „elaphos“,
„elaphitides“, which would mean deer-rich land. Deer traces were,
however, not found on any of the islands.
Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan are the only inhabited islands with around
900 inhabitants throughout the year. The Elaphite Islands have long
been a favorite place of rest, enjoyment and business for the
Dubrovnik nobility. Both then and today, locals and tourists alike
love to visit the Elaphite Islands and their cultural sites, nature,
sandy beaches, bays, caves and taste the seafood.
Private boat tour
the best way to visit the Elaphite Islands. This is the only way to
find hidden places, see and experience the islands in full splendor!
If you decide to take a trip with us, Deck & Cheers will brighten your
day. You will be picked up from your address in and around Dubrovnik
and in a few minutes, your private boat tour begins. You will pass the
island of Daksa or the walls of the old city of Dubrovnik (depending
on the place of departure), then we speed up a bit and in a few
minutes you arrive at the first and smallest inhabited island of
Kolocep, among the locals „Kalamota“. Kolocep is the richest island in
terms of caves, and their exploration is a wonderful and special
experience. Especially the swimming in the Blue Cave, which is also a
major attraction. After enjoying the caves, you will taste our D&C
welcome cocktail prepared by captain Tonći. Next stop - a walk through
the place called Donje Čelo is special particularly because of the
peace and tranquility: there are no cars in Kolocep.
From the island of Kolocep we move to the island of Lopud.
Lopud is the middle one ofthe inhabited islands and it also has the largest village, but also
peace and quiet, as there are also no cars, only a few carts for
transporting food and goods, and golf cars used for the transport of
passengers to the sandy beach of Sunj or the Lafodia Hotel.
Fortunately, you have a D&C Private boat tour and we will visit the
beautiful sandy beach of Sunj by boat. Having your own large sun deck
and a long sandy beach around seems simple, but it is a great luxury,
that gives you a feeling of freedom, particularly in the middle of
hustle and bustle of the main sesason). Walking around Lopud by the
shore has its soul. You will see a beautiful monastery with church and
a museum, stone houses, Mayineri park and several sandy beaches, and
when you get hungry and want to taste fresh fish, seafood, meat or
vegetables, restaurant „Dubrovnik“ is always the best choice and a top
recommendation of the captain. With a taste of the sea and full belly,
it's time to visit the island of Sipan. With two locations connected
by road, Sudurad in the east and Luka Šipan in the west, Sipan is the
largest Elaphite island. It is known as the island of olives and
fishing. Throwing an anchor, swimming in the crystal clear sea in one
of the coves of Sipan and the smell of pine is an immeasurable
feeling. After visiting a few more beautiful caves, it's time to head
back and wrap up your private boat tour with a D&C gift, before you
will be transported to your accommodation.
