Sipan

Sipan is the largest of the main Elafiti islands, and there are two main villages on the island – Sudjuradj, on the southeastern tip of the island, and Sipanska Luka, on the western side, each centred around a bay. Unlike Kolocep and Lopud, Sipan isn’t car free – although it is still a relatively quiet and peaceful island. (The presence of cars means the presence of a proper road…which, in turn, means you can get a bus across the island.)
