Šipan is the largest island of the archipelago Elafiti, laying in front of famous Dubrovnik. Its 16,5 square kilometers are divided by two settlements; Suđurađ and Šipanska luka, where luka means port in Croatian. They are connected by 5 kilometers long state road, passing through the fields, orchards and vineyards, bathed in the golden sun.Šipanska luka is bigger of two settlements and the number of its inhabitants is constantly decreasing. Today it has 237 permanent inhabitants and a small harbor where a ferry can dock. The lives of Šipan’s people and economy are closely attached to the ones of Dubrovnik. From the earliest history of the island until today, Šipan is like the extension of the city and thus well connected by frequent boat lines. The bond can easily be spotted just by a glance on the Šipan’s magical landscape; over 30 small churches from different past times are scattered across the island, palaces of noble families of Dubrovnik used to be are preserved until today, walls and ornaments from antiquity witness of the significance of this small island to some other commons who used to watch sunsets on its beaches.Beautiful nature; crystal clean sea, wide pine tree-tops dropping the greenish shadows upon warm ground, fertile slashes of soil in mostly scanty Dalmatian countryside cherish olive trees, vine, carob, fig trees and rose hips. Holiday accommodation consists of private apartment and rooms with wide open windows hidden behind rose-bays facing to the sea. It is a place for the ones who seek for quiet and peaceful destinations, places whose silence is interrupted just by mistral trapped in tree-tops around. There is one curiosity about Šipan; it entered in the Guinness book of records as a place with the greater number of olive trees considering its size and the number of residents.
