Šipan on the map


The Largest of the Elaphiti Islands

Šipan is the largest and most ecologically diverse island of the Elaphite archipelago, and is overrun with hundreds of different wild spices, flowers and fruits. Its inhabitants reside in the towns of Suđurađ and Šipanska Luka. The renaissance-era village of Suđurađ is located on the eastern side of the island, facing the island of Koločep. Šipanska Luka is situated around the island’s western bay, which is renowned among sailors as a peaceful and well protected harbor. With several daily ferry-boat connections to the historic city of Dubrovnik, just 17 km away, Šipan is a popular destination for adventurers who wish to escape from the summertime crowds thronging the streets and walkways of the city.
