Day four in Croatia was our trip to Sipan, the largest of the Elaphiti islands. Clay and I again took the bus from Old Town to Gruz Harbor, where we took the 9am Jadrolinija Ferry to Sudurad, a small sleepy village stretched across Sipan's main harbor. From Sudurad, we took a bus to Sipanska Luka, a larger town and active fishing village on the other side of the island. It also had a quiet, sleepy village vibe.
In Sipanska Luka, we had a peaceful lunch at Konoba Tauris, where we had fresh lemonade, salad, pasta, and sea bream. It was nice because we were the only people there! After lunch, we walked down the waterfront to Prijezba Beach, a small pebbly beach that was tucked away around the corner. Unfortunately, we only had time to sit briefly at the beach bar before we had to walk back to the bus stop and catch our ride back to Sudurad. I would've loved to spend an afternoon at Prijezba with Clay! When we returned to Sudurad, we had just enough time to squeeze in a wine and olive oil tasting at Family Danicic, a small family-owned vineyard where a nice Croatian grandma welcomed us to her yard for a quick tasting. Once again, we were the only visitors there!
Though it isn't a major tourist spot, Sipan was definitely still a gem to visit. I loved that there were very few people on the island -- a refreshing break from the tourist crowds everywhere else. The island was so quiet and peaceful, allowing us to just slow down and enjoy the surroundings with each other. Sipan and its two sleepy fishing villages were very lovely and charming in its own way!
Just capturing as I go.
