Koločep Island

Total Croatia News

Kolocep is the smallest island among three Elaphiti islands (Lopud, Sipan) and a population of around 200 people mostly live in two main villages: Gornje (Upper) Celo and Donje (Lower) Čelo.
Once known as Calaphodia, today’s name Kolocep comes for the name of Koločepski Channel—a part of the Adriatic Sea between the Olipa and Koločep islands and the mainland opposite of them.
In Republic of Dubrovnik, this island also known as Kalamota, was important centre of the shipbuilding activities.

The island can be reached by regular ferry service Jadrolinija – the “Postira” and “Premuda” services connect the Elaphiti Islands with Dubrovnik Port of Gruz several times throughout the day.
