The waters of Dubrovnik include the coastline south of the mouth of the Neretva River, the Pelješac peninsula and the entire coastline to the Prevlaka peninsula, including the western side of the entrance to Boka kotorska, as well as numerous islands: Korčula, Lastovo, Sušac, Mljet and the Elafiti archipelago, which lies closer to Dubrovnik and encompasses Jakljan, Šipan, Lopud, Koločep, Daksa, Sveti Andrija and Lokrum. All of these islands are a challenge for every yachtsman.
he attraction of Elafiti islands, the southernmost archipelago in the Adriatic, is in the mystical deep blue in which the canopy of the dense woods above the rocky shores is reflected. The Elafiti are islands with an exceptional atmosphere that enchant anyone who sails there. When, sailing from the west towards Dubrovnik along the unchanging landscape of the uninhabited southern part of Pelješac, you will reach Mali vratnik and Veli vratnik, you will suddenly find yourselves in surroundings that many sailors consider to be the most beautiful part of the Adriatic.
he Elafiti include a total of fourteen islands that start with Olip, right next to Pelješac to the west, all the way to Lokrum off Dubrovnik. Their name stems for the Greek word elaphos, which means deer. It was recorded as far back as the 1st century, and even though there are no visible remains of Greek or Roman structures on any of the islands, many names reveal their former presence. Croatian traces on the islands are numerous, like the small pre-Romanesque churches dating from the 9th, 10th and 11th centuries. There are fifteen of them all together on Šipan, Lopud and Koločep, positioned along fertile fields and olive groves or on the hills, and a walk to them through the untouched surroundings reminds us of times when life flourished on these islands.
