KOLOCEP is a small island and village of the same name in the Dubrovnik archipelago (Elaphite Islands). It consists of two limestone ridges separated from each other by a valley. Due to the limestone formation, there are no surface water streams on the island. The climate is mild and typical Mediterranean. Forests and subtropical vegetation largely cover the island. The only place on the island is Kolocep.
The hamlet of Celo, situated on the north-western coast, is protected from the bora by a limestone cliff. Celo has sand and pebble beaches and a park with numerous species of subtropical flora. Gornje Celo, on the south-eastern coast of the island, lies around the cove of the same name with a sand beach. Larger coves are Sapluni and Porat.
Nice sand and pebble beaches of Kolocep attract numerous tourists and excursionists. Centuries-old pine forests are amply represented on this beautiful green island; the climate favours the cultivation of olives, carobs, oranges and lemons.
