Sudrat Sipana

The small village and harbor of Sudurad lies on the south-east coast of the island of Sipna, the largest of the populated Elaphite Islands.  It’s an attractive sleepy village – just the kind of place that you might be looking to visit on a Dubrovnik yacht charter. The tower in the village dates from 1577 and was built to protect the inhabitants from attacks by marauding pirates. 

There aren’t any pirates these days, thankfully – just a chilled village where you’ll receive a genuinely warm welcome from the locals. In the past there was a shipbuilding industry on the island, but these days the villagers are mainly dependent on agriculture and fishing. You can buy locally made wine, cheese and ham in the two shops on the island. The small island of Ruda lies just a half a mile off shore and there are good snorkeling and scuba-diving sites to explore..  

 

Mooring:

  • Bow or stern-to inside the harbor or, if there is room, on the village side of the new car ferry jetty.

  • Explore the interior of the island on foot or by bike
