Tourist destination info Kolocep - island Kolocep

Koločep is a picturesque Adriatic island in the Elafiti near Dubrovnik, also called Kalamota by the locals. Its surface area is 2.35 km2 and it is only 5km away from Dubrovnik’s Gruž port which offers about a dozen daily connections. The island has two towns, Gornje Čelo and Donje Čelo, located in the largest bays and connected by a 3km long swerving promenade. The East and West parts of the island are covered in thick pine tree forest which descends all the way to the surface of the sea. It is one of the most interesting islands in the Adriatic with numerous hidden coves, as well as the Blue Cave inside which you can swim. The clear sea is full of fish and seashells. Unlike the majority of Adriatic islands, Koločep has an abundance of rich soil and water, as well as diverse plants and tall trees. The first sight of the island can leave you breathless, as it fills you with peace, the smell of Mediterranean plants and the intense color of the Adriatic. It has pebble and sandy beaches, the larger coves are Sapluni and Porat and you can find accommodation in the apartments or hotels located along the coast of the Donje Čelo cove. The historical and cultural monuments you can visit are the church of St. Anthony of Padua, the church of St. Nicholas, church of St. Srđ and the remains of the economic and country building complex. Sports and recreation lovers can enjoy the cycling and jogging trails which follow the coastline, as well as scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, beach volleyball and badminton. Near the villas there is also children’s playground with slides, swings, merry go rounds and other activities. If you would like to learn about the traditions of the island, the school of traditional skills and activities offers visits to the local families which maintain traditional skills, such as making carob brandy, traditional evening fishing or goat milking for the purpose of making yogurt and cheese. Koločep offers various excursions, such as cruising around the Elafiti islands on the “Karaka” ship, visits to the Blue Cave on the island, seeing various monuments and excursions to Dubrovnik with tours of the old town. You can enjoy local specialties such as Dalmatian prosciutto and cheese, wild game, wild duck, cheese in oil, green manestra and various seafood specialties in the “Škerac” and “Stari Miri” restaurants. After your first visit to the island, you will always want to return. While in Koločep, do not miss the opportunity to visit Dubrovnik and Cavtat.
