Visitors can immerse themselves in the Elaphiti's traditions by exploring the many restaurants and cafes that offer traditional seafood and Croatian wines.
The Elaphiti Islands are a paradise for water enthusiasts and beach-goers. With stunning bays and shallow waters, visitors can enjoy some of the region's best swimming spots, as well as activities such as sailing, kayaking, fishing, and snorkeling.
