Travelling with that special someone? The tiny secluded island of Sipan is one of the more romantic areas (one of many!) in the Elafiti archipelago. Here you will find a pic-ture-perfect beach, gorgeous vineyards and alluring orchards that are bursting with co-lourful grapes, pomegranates, figs and various other tantalising fruits. There is an unpa-ralleled sense of peace here which makes it the ideal place for relaxing and spending time with your partner.
Hotel Bozica offers incredible views over the bay from the fabulous restaurant. Be sure to book in advance as this (understandably) fills up quickly and particularly in peak times.
Croatia is world-famous for its sensational wines, so you will certainly want to sample the local produce during your stay. The island of Orebic on the Peljesac peninsula is the best place for oenophiles. A vineyard tour and tasting is an absolute must with the Dingac and Postup red wines being a local speciality produced exclusively by the island’s unique microclimate.
Hotel Indijan is a secluded retreat with an intimate feel and world-class service. It also has its own vineyard and wine cellar, so you never have to stray far for a glass of the good stuff!
