5. Dubrovnik: Elaphite Islands Private Speedboat Full-Day Tour
At 10 am private skipper will be waiting for you to embark the speedboat and to start this full day adventure on the sea! First, you'll be riding through stunning Elaphiti Channel and in about 40 minutes, you'll reach sandy beach Šunj on the island of Lopud. Šunj is one of the rare sandy beaches on our coast, so this is an opportunity to enjoy in a bit different views than the ones you've seen so far. You'll spend about an hour on Šunj where you can swim, have drinks or just sunbathe in the beautiful enviroment.
Your next destination will be island of Šipan (the biggest one from Elaphiti islands). On your way to Šipan, skipper will make a short stop in a hidden bay for snorkeling, swimming, or just taking photos as the views are splendid. You can jump off the speedboat into the crystal clear sea or just enjoy the surroundings from the boat. It's up to your preference. After this short but sweet stop, you'll reach 'Luka Šipanska' which is one out of two inhabited places on the whole island. Here you'll have free time for lunch or drinks in a local beach bar! It's beautiful to walk around and discover the island. Enjoy local life for a while, little bays and traditional boats in the port. There are only about 200 people living on the entire island, so visiting it is this truly unique experience.
From Šipan you will continue towards smaller island of Koločep. On your way to Koločep you will stop in Sikirica Bay for swimming. It's hard to locate this bay on the map and that's why it's even more special. You can snorkel there or even use sea scooter! Sikirica has turquoise color of the sea and it makes it even more special to visit! After the break on Sikirica, you'll continue towards Koločep which is nature's oasis, untouched and clean. Less than 150 people live there and during the winter time it's almost empty. Beaches are rocky or pebbly and the color of the sea is incomparable to anything else. On Koločep, you'll visit Blue Cave where you can take some photos as the background is perfect. Here you'll have another opportunity for swimming, sunbathing or snorkeling before your return to Dubrovnik.
Besides Elaphiti Islands, there are few hidden bays where skipper also suggests to stop because these bays are definitely worth visiting. They are not easily found on the map which makes it even better. Get ready for a day full of surprisingly beautiful locations on your way to main location!
