Our first stop is Kolocep Island. The smallest of the inhabited islands in the Elaphiti Archipelago. Kolocep is ideal for water activities and we will try out paddle-boards. We will probably make a swimming break before stopping for lunch in one of the best fish restaurants in the area. After lunch and a short hike to Kolocep’s spectacular cliffs, we continue sailing towards Sipan Island. We will anchor in one of the most beautiful bays in the area for a dinner and a swim.
