Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to the Elafiti Islands archipelago. Green islands covered by forests with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches, devoid of traffic, and under an hour’s sailing time from Dubrovnik. Each has no more than a couple hundred permanent residents who live in stone houses of traditional character. Tall palm trees, parks, gardens and flowers everywhere contribute to an easy going lifestyle. Occasionally our yachts or kayaks are escorted by friendly dolphins or tuna that are often seen in the area. The sea is blue, clear, warm and friendly. Our journey will also take us to Peljesac Peninsula, an area covered with vineyard's and home of some of world famous wines, as well as being the beautiful Mljet Island National Park.
