The Elafiti islands are an archipelago situated close to – and slightly northwest of – Dubrovnik. There are six islands in the archipelago, not including those small islets, although the three main ones to visit and stay on are Koločep, Lopud and Šipan. Two of the three islands, Koločep and Lopud, are entirely car-free, which means they’re an excellent place to base yourself on if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. (Or perhaps just the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik for one day!) The islands get their name from the Greek word elafos, meaning deer; in ancient times the islands were apparently home to a large deer population. The islands are particularly famous as the most skillful mariners came from there. They are great getaway for cruising, swimming time and enjoying your vacation in a truly Dalmatian style.
