Known by locals as Kalamota, Kolocep is one of the Elaphite Islands that are inhabited. These islands are just off Dubrovnik on Croatia’s Adriatic Sea coastline. This island’s shoreline is bordered by clear turquoise waters and is replete with interesting geological features including caves. The Mediterranean climate is perfect for sightseeing and outdoor activity. Being close to the touristy city of Dubrovnik, tourists staying in Kolocep holiday homes have a tour of Dubrovnik in their itineraries. Here they will have the chance to visit many historical sites and immerse themselves in local culture. It is also here that visitors will get the supplies they need for their Kolocep holiday rentals. These holiday homes are fitted with air-conditioning and other facilities to ensure holidaymakers of supreme comfort.

Things to do

-Monuments: There are seven medieval churches on this island which residents of holiday apartments in Kolocep will be able to reach easily. These religious monuments were constructed during the times of the Croatian kings between the 9th and 11th centuries. The remains of several European conquerors have been found in Kolocep representing the ancient empires of Greece, Rome and Napoleon.

-Beach: Kolocep has a magnificent coastline dotted with hidden coves, one of which leads to a cave which one has to swim into. It is known as the Blue Cave. The stretches of sand that define the island’s beaches are ideal for both lounging and leisurely promenades. Visitors can join locals in swimming in the waters next to the beach.

-Hiking: There are trails that lead visitors through Kolocep’s abundant flora which consists mainly of pine and olive groves. Walking or cycling is actually the only way to get around in Kolocep as the place is a traffic-free area. This is not a tall order as the island in only 2.5km long. There are a few hills and so the terrain is quite challenging.

-Water sports: Among other activities available to holidaymakers enjoying the quiet and comfort of holiday apartments in Kolocep are kayaking and sailing in the waters of the Adriatic. Tourists can hire boats to take them on rides to the other Elaphite Islands or to Dubrovnik which is just 20 minutes away.

-Dubrovnik: Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most sought after tourist destinations and considering its rich history evidenced by a wealth of monuments and museums as well as the many cultural activities hosted here, one can understand why. The city also boasts lovely beaches, some sandy, some pebbly, from which visitors can enjoy the beautiful Mediterranean sun.

Fabulous central location a few minutes walk from the main square and on the front row of the city walls. Very quiet in the evening, we not hear any noise other than the birds and city bells. Newly decorated and very modern feel with everything that we needed during our stay. Maro the owner and his wife were very accommodating and flexible. Would recommend you book this place without hestitation it really is without fault! Thanks again
