KEMET Motor Boat Safari to Elaphiti Islands
The Elaphitis consist of a large number of reefs and eight islands just northwest of Dubrovnik. Only three islands in the whole Elaphiti archipelago are inhabited: Koločep, Lopud and Šipan.
There is no better way
to explore the Elaphiti islands than with a private motor boat tour, since some of the best spots can only be reached by sea. Unveil those hidden pieces of paradise, such as caves and bays for swimming and snorkeling.
, located between Šipan and Koločep, is second in size and best known for its sandy beaches which are rare to find in Dubrovnik area. Weather and time permitting, the boats may stop for a swim and snorkeling at Lopud and a second stop next to a cave, depending on sea conditions, prior to heading to Koločep for beach time and lunch.
(called Kalamota by the locals) is the main destination for the tour – a, lush, evergreen island full of pine trees entangled with citrus gardens and small olive groves, surrounded by the crystal blue shades of the Adriatic Sea. Relax on the beach or enjoy or enjoy a walking tour with a guide. This island will be our base for the balance of the morning.
THEN join us for a KEMET luncheon at the spectacular Villa Rose.
Built in 1930 by a rich merchant from Dubrovnik and dedicated as a symbol of love to his wife, the Villa rises on a seaside rock in a deep shadow of pine trees at the very entrance to the Donje Celo bay. This unique haven of peace and serenity is certainly one of the most romantic places on the Adriatic Coast.
