Daksa Island


The Island of Daksa is the smallest Elaphite island. In the past, it was a gathering place for believers from the surrounding area, but also from distant lands. The monastery was built at the end of the 13th century, and today its ruins remain. The Franciscans stayed there until the arrival of Napoleon's army in 1806. There was also a unique Way of the Cross on the island, made up of chapels. The remains of the chapels can still be seen today. On the north side of the island is a lighthouse from 1872.

I walked through the ruins of the chapels and the monastery and the walk was adventurous with lots of sights to behold. The guide fed us with a lot of history about the Island which was a gathering place for believers from the surrounding area. It was a wonderful experience being here.
The Island of Daksa is beautiful and in my evening stroll, i went to view the chapel remains. Later on, i engaged in fishing which was a satisfying experience.
Scenic views of the landscape from the island. We visited some of the ruins and heard of the great history that the place holds. Wonderful place to be and totally worth the visit.
I enjoyed my boat ride to this Island. It was so nice. This Island's religious history is just amazing. I was able to see some of the old chapels and monastery. Now the lay in ruins but from the ruins one can see and picture their original plans.
I went to this Island with my fiance and had a wonderful time. The cool air and the beautiful views were so romantic. We loved this place.
very good!!!
my children and I did some fishing with the help of our guide and later cooked the fish we had gotten. this gave my children so much satisfaction and confidence.
