View Lokrum island from Villa Antipodes

Start with a relaxed breakfast on the Villa Antipodes balcony looking out to the Adriatic Sea, then spend a day exploring the many islands of Dubrovnik

Lokrum

The island of Lokrum forms part of your view from
Villa Antipodes.

There are several ways to visit.

At the boat harbour in the
Dubrovnik Old Town there are a number of options to take a ferry across and spend part or all of a day.

Another option is to take a kayak tour such as that offered by Adventure Dalmatia who depart from the small harbour below the Pile gate and run two to three hour trips a couple of times a day in the summer.
The Elafiti Islands of Kolocep, Lopud, and Sipan
Elafiti Islands

To the west lie the Elafiti Islands of Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan.

These can be visited individually or together through a number of organised tours from the Dubrovnik Old Port or by scheduled ferry services from Gruz Harbour.

The first two (Kolocep and Lopud islands) are ‘car free’ so the perfect place for a peaceful get away and inexpensive to visit. Expect to find sandy beaches, quaint restaurants and the remains of summer houses built by the ship captains of Dubrovnik at the height of the Town’s power.

Sipan is the largest of the three with two small ports and areas of farming and agriculture. The Dubrovnik Bishops built their summer residences here in times gone by.
Dubrovnik island of Mijet
Mijet

Mijet is the next island to the west and since it is a little further off the tourist beaten track, offers an even more peaceful experience.

The Western end of the island is a National Park with a lake in which sits an island on which sits a Benedictine Monastery dating from 1177.

This island has a great variety of natural beauty and a fascinating history.
