Šipan is the largest island of the Elaphite island group, off the coast of Dubrovnik. On its modest surface of 15km2, there are 42 villas and 34 churches; largely abandoned in the present day, though some are being restored. The pristine nature and abundant, authentic Mediterranean vegetation were recognized here since ancient times. Once housing over 7000 people, Šipan's only two villages Šipanska Luka and Suđurađ are home to around 450, mostly elderly citizens today. The crises of the 20th century led to Šipan's decline, but in recent times many investments promise a turn for the better.
It is nevertheless a site of beautiful scenery, marine and land flora and fauna, and as such is a part of every excursion and travel plan through the southern Adriatic.
