5. Dubrovnik: Elafiti Islands Trip w/ Lunch and Optional Pickup
Set off on an island-hopping cruise to the Elafiti Islands of Lopud, Šipan, and Koločep on a day trip from Dubrovnik. Visit beaches, historical churches, vineyards, and olive groves at your own pace and try Mediterranean delicacies.
If you choose the hotel pickup option, be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle that will take you to the harbor. Once at the harbor, climb aboard the boat and settle in for a cruise along Dubrovnik's coastline. Set sail to your first stop, the island of Lopud, where you will have free time to explore the island as you like.
Relax on the sunny shores or visit the sandy beach at Šunj Bay. If you feel like stretching your legs, hike along the car-free roads to explore untouched nature or discover the island's famous heritage, including old ruined fortresses and a Saint Mary Franciscan monastery.
Next, sail to the largest island in the Elafiti archipelago, Šipan. Disembark to explore the island's scenic vineyards and olive groves. At your final stop, Koločep, relax with a swim in the crystal-clear waters off the coast or take a stroll through the pine forests before returning to Dubrovnik.
During the cruise, quench your thirst with unlimited local wine, water, and various soft drinks. Sample homemade olive oil and the best homegrown vegetables for that real Mediterranean experience. For lunch, choose between grilled fish or chicken or a vegetarian menu, all served with potato salad.
