At the very coast of Šipan island, the largest among the Elaphite Islands, Suđurađ is one of two inhabited settlements to have taken its place under the sun on this island. Suđurađ also hosts a dock. Šipan is separated from the coast by the Koločep Channel and is surrounded with several islets. It is known for its numerous bays, crystal sea and a variety of fish specie. Most of the island is taken by the Šipan Field where olives, grapevine and figs are being grown. The entire island has around thirty medieval churches, but most of them are in ruins. In Suđurađ, i.e. in immediate vicinity of the port is a renaissance castle of the Stjepović-Skočibuha family. There is also the Pakljena Tower from the y. 1529 and St Spirit Church with a flat roof, the largest of this shape in the Adriatic coast.
