Stepping onto this scenic island is like stepping back in time to a simpler age. There are a number of mediaeval churches and other old buildings on this island but for the most part there is very little to see and do other than simple island life being lived around you, and the unspoiled nature of walks across the island. You can hike to a secluded bay or climb to the high point of the island at Velji Vrh, which is a limestone crag 243 m above sea level. Take note of the numerous palm tree species that grow on Sipan. This is the island of the three to come to if you are looking for peace and quiet away from the throng.

There is a range of accommodation available on this popular tourist island, but thankfully the island's nature is largely entirely undisturbed.
