Usually not walking, but for swimming tourists come to Croatia – No wonder, because the water is crystal clear, invites the fauna for snorkeling, the people are friendly and prices while increasing, but still lower than elsewhere in Europe. Have we still searched for a satisfaction away from the beaches and coves – and hiking freaks were on Kolocep, one of the Elaphiti islands close to Dubrovnik, find it.
The somewhat puny map of the tourism authority is not necessarily so at first glance as though Kolocep have much to offer – which is why we have not only tracked the hike and thus can make no serious distances given. We were actually a whole afternoon, approximately 14 to 20 h but then on the road, where we went off the North-South axis of the island and get there a couple of times have lost.
Important note: not entirely comprehensible reasons, North and South are reversed on the map. It is thus on the head.
It is advisable to follow the paved main road, until you starting the hike from the port of Donje Celo to the pink comes St. Nicholas Church, including their cute little cemetery. From there we continue up to the second city of the island, Gornje Celo – who’s hungry, which can here approve a meal in the restaurant in the harbor.
Continue along a dirt road, past ruins and a not so clean Sandy Bay to the Südzipel of the island, where a small lighthouse (“Bezdan”) gives a pretty good photo motif.
Heading north we stood back on the West Coast, where we were really surprised by the beauty of the wild cliffs.
Ironic is that the place placet on the map but was marked as beach, in truth but not too inviting on bathers.
By placet, hikers can again go back across the main street or make even the detour via the less spectacular “Bige”. Here, the way – so meandering paths through the forest, is flanked by old walls – the goal.
Either way you are deserved a reward after a day full of sweat and pain – namely a cool Ozujsko at sunset.
Kolocep is generally a pretty little island where you like to spend time. If we hike here not just, then we go like snorkeling, lie in the Sun – there is also a naturist Beach, on the hemmunnglos hanging around his Schniedelwuzz in the area can be-oder just enjoy the peace and quiet.
Who needs a break, this place is highly recommended. As an accommodation, we recommend as often to private. Marija for example is friendly, and its terrace offers a formidable prospect. You find them in Airbnb and there can not miss them – currently (as of may 2017) is one just two Airbnb hosts on all Kolocep.
