Šipan is a touch north of Dubrovnik. The largest of the Elaphiti islands it's got a population of 500, living on a couple of limestone crests on top of which olives, figs, almonds, oranges and carob are grown, in amongst the endemic palm trees. As well as the palm trees, this island is known for its eagles.

People have been living on Šipan since the middle ages when it was known for its vineyards, but in more recent history it became a choice spot for wealthy families from Dubrovnik to build their summer places. Part of the island's charm lies in, or on, its lovely beaches.

Šipan has two ports: Suđurađ to the island's east, and Šipanska Luka to the island's west.
