Pin It

This tiny island located seven kms from Dubovnik is home to less than 200 inhabitants. Its pine and carob trees, citrus gardens, olive groves, both sand and pebble beaches and traditional architecture make it a unique and quiet spot.

There are two settlements, located one at each end of the island, separated by a path that takes you past the pre-Romanesque churches and ruined summer mansions from Otok Kolocep's heyday in the 15th Century.

Hi Lindsay!

Kolocep is great, I envy you :)

Here's an idea - why not post this story to Croatian Tourist Board's online contest on and win a free trip next year.
