1) Enjoy Warm Turquoise Waters on your Sailing Getaway

Croatia is celebrated for its brilliantly clear waters and the beautiful, softly shimmering oceans around the Elaphiti Islands are simply too alluring to resist. Stroll along the shoreline as the waves softly lap over your feet or head in for a cooling afternoon dip when the temperatures start heating up.

2) Relax in Hidden Coves and Secluded Bays

Sipan is widely lauded as one of Croatia’s most beautiful secluded bays, providing idyllic views and an unbridled sense of inimitable tranquillity.

3) Soak in Spectacular Sunsets over the Sea

With a refreshing cocktail in hand or as you indulge in a delicious Croatian evening feast, you will never tire of watching glorious pink, orange and red hues cascade across the sky in this island paradise.

4) Stroll Charming Streets and Stunning Trails

If you’re keen to stretch your legs after a leisurely lunch, you won’t find yourself disappointed in the views. Two of the three main islands are completely car-free, allowing visitors to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and truly relax.

5) Partake in a Spot of Stargazing

An absence of bright city lights means that the night skies above the Elaphiti Islands are nothing short of spectacular. Watch in awe as the sun sets and is replaced by a rich blanket of diamond-like constellations, and admire how wonderful your beautiful surroundings look when illuminated solely by moonlight.

6) Indulge in the Flavours of an Unforgettable Croatian Feast

Making the most out of locally sourced ingredients, the Elaphiti Islands are home to a variety of revered eateries and restaurants that you are certain to fall head over heels for. Specialising in ultra-fresh grilled fish, enjoy the tastes and textures of the sea as you look out over your glassy-watered surroundings. Bliss.
