Combine natural beauty with historical landmarks on this private 8-hour cruise of the Elafiti islands from Dubrovnik. Luxuriate on a private boat as you sail to the Elafiti archipelago’s three main islands: Sipan, Lopud, and Kolocep. During free time on each island, discover ancient monasteries, atmospheric castle ruins, and pristine red sand beaches. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Dubrovnik is included on this private tour.
In the morning, board an air-conditioned coach destined for Dubrovnik’s marina at your hotel. Then, climb aboard your private boat and set sail towards the blissful Elafiti archipelago, home to less than one thousand people.
Your first stop is Sipan, a picturesque island that boasts a 15th-century monastery and dilapidated former summer homes of aristocrats. Spend a while exploring the island before proceeding to Lopud, where you’ll have the chance to enjoy lunch at your own expense.
Continue to discover Lopud, an island on which cars are banned, and marvel at the ruins of the Rector’s Palace and an imposing fortress. See, too, the striking red-sand beach of Sunj, where you’ll have time to swim or bask in the midday sun.
Move on to Kolocep, the smallest of the three islands, and relish the tranquility of another car-free environment. Visit religious landmarks such as the Church of St. Sergius, the Church of St. Nicolas, and the Church of Holy Trinity, all of which date back to the 11th century.
After a delightful day of island hopping, cruise back to Dubrovnik and board a private vehicle back to your hotel.
