About destinations

The Elaphiti archipelago, with its 13 islands scattered like jewels in the Adriatic Sea, is a maritime tapestry waiting to be unraveled. While only three are inhabited – Koločep, Lopud, and Šipan – each island possesses a unique charm and story, adding layers to the archipelago’s allure.

Located on the Croatian Island of Kolocep, also known as Kalamota, this hidden oasis is a well-kept secret among the locals. Here’s the catch: you can only reach Modra Spilja by boat or a refreshing swim, adding a touch of exclusivity and intimacy to your visit.

Welcome to the hidden paradise of Lopud Island, where the sun kisses the shores of Šunj Beach, creating a haven for sunseekers and nature enthusiasts alike. Šunj Beach stands out as a gem on this Croatian island, offering a unique blend of natural beauty and a laid-back atmosphere that invites you to unwind.
