About Sipan Island
Sipan Island(pronounced shee-pan) is the largest of the Elaphiti Islands at 16.5 sq km. The main port is Sudurad (pronounced soodg-er-adg) which is connected by road to Sipanska luka, a larger town about 5km away. In between is a verdant valley composed of olive and fig trees, vineyards and citrus groves. Sipan is famous for its wine and for its delightfully laid-back ambiance. Sipan Island is historically interesting. During the 15th century it was a chic summer getaway for the very best Dubrovnik families, many of whom built palaces on the island. On the road between Sudurad and Sipanska luka, you can't miss the late-Gothic Rector's Palace and ruins of archbishop's palaces.
