Sipan Island is the largest of the Elaphiti Islands at 16.5sq km. The main port is Sudurad which is connected by road to Sipanska Luka, the other major town. In between is a verdant landscape of olive and fig trees, vineyards and citrus groves. Sipan is famous for its wine and interesting history. During the 15th century it was a chic summer getaway for the very best Dubrovnik families, many of whom built palaces on the island. There's also a late-Gothic Rector's Palace and ruins of archbishop's palaces. Sipan's beaches are less exalted than on Lopud but you'll have no trouble finding a pleasant place to leap into the clear sea.
