Island of Sipan

Known as ‘the golden island’, Sipan is the largest of the Elafiti islands. It has a charming atmosphere with its quaint stone houses, grand mansions and ornate churches.

Sipan is the kind of place where your imagination can run riot - it is a fairytale island of olive groves, vineyards and abandoned monasteries and crumbling mansions.

During Ragusa’s golden age, it was popular as a summer retreat for the city’s wealthy merchants, many of whom built grand summer residences here. It is fascinating to wander amongst them now and wonder about their history and the people who once lived in them. These days there are fewer than 500 inhabitants of idyllic Sipan and the pace of life here is much more laid-back. It is a haven for holidaymakers who want to relax and get away from it all. There are two main centres on the island at opposite ends - Sudurad, where Hotel Bozica is located, and Sipanska Luka.

There are a number of charming restaurants, cafes and bars on the island and plenty of places to swim in the beautifully clear waters of the Adriatic. It is easy to take boat trips to the other islands, or to hidden coves on Sipan itself.

Keen ramblers will enjoy walking in the fertile interior of the island. It is famous for its olive oil and wine, and you will see many fruits growing. You may well come across the ruins of the Napoleonic Fortress, not to mention a number of churches - there are over thirty on the island in total.
