Beaches and Coves

A miles of mostly undeveloped shoreline...

The island of Korčula is surrounded by crystal clear sea and its indented coastline abounds with smaller and bigger coves with hidden or more visited beaches. A unique feature of Korčula is also a group of 40 islets perfect for exploring and swimming.

A special place among them is held by Proizd, which was dubbed the most beautiful beach in the Adriatic in 2007. 

Vela Luka

Vela Luka is the largest town on the island of Korčula

Vela Luka is the largest town on the island of Korčula. It is situated on its west side, at the centre of a 9, 2 km long bay. The bay is a safe port for sailors and its shore is extremely indented, with numerous coves in which holiday homes, apartments and hotels can be found.

At the very entrance to the bay of Vela Luka there is Proizd, a little island with a beach chosen as the most beautiful Adriatic beach in 2007. 

Blato

Prižba, Gršćica, Karbuni, Prigradica...

Blato is a town  situated in the heart of the island of Korčula, 7 km away from Vela Luka, whereas 4 km divide it from the sea. In many coves on the north and south side of Blato there are holiday homes and apartments in private houses.

Accommodation can also be found at campsites and the Prišćapac apartment resort. In restaurants and agritourism businesses fish and meat specialties are served along with homemade olive oil and wine.

Smokvica

The birthplace of the famous Pošip grape

Smokvica is situated in the continental part of the island, just 17 km from Vela Luka. Local bus lines connect it with Vela Luka while intercity coach lines link it with Dubrovnik, Zagreb and Sarajevo. Tourist villages of Brna and Vinačac, located south of Smokvica, offer apartments available for rental.

In the vicinity of Brno there is a deep sandy cove called Istruga, particularly convenient for swimming with children.

Čara

One of the five ancient settlements in Korčula

The place called Čara is just 20 km distant from Vela Luka, spreading on the hill slopes above a vast field called Čarsko polje.

To the south of Čara one will find a village of Zavalatica with numerous apartments available for holiday rental.
In the past, Zavalatica was a summer residence to many a Korčula’s nobleman, the most prominent one being the poet Kanavelić who lived in the 17th century.

Pupnat

Just 12 km from Korčula town

Pupnat is the smallest village on the island of Korčula, just 12 km from Korčula town. Local bus lines connect it with both Korčula and Vela Luka.

Pupnatska Luka is a deep cove surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation, reachable by a narrow asphalt road. The pebble beach deep into the cove is regularly selected among the most beautiful beaches of the Adriatic sea.

Račišće

Račišće is located 12 km west of the town of Korčula

Račišće is located in a cove 12 km west of the town of Korčula. This small village, offering tourist accommodation in private and holiday homes, is a perfect resort for all those seeking to escape the hectic everyday life.

The place boasts a small pebble beach, and two more are to be found west of Račišće in the coves of Vaja and Samograd. The beaches were formed of the remains of white stone which used to be excavated and worked in nearby quarries.

Žrnovo

Žrnovo sits in an inland location, 4 km west of Korčula town

Žrnovo sits in an inland location, 4 km west of Korčula town. The coves of Žrnovska Banja and Tri Žala, lying to its north, offer their visitors tourist accommodation in apartments and holiday homes. Due to favorable winds in the channel between Korčula and Pelješac, Žrnovska Banja has become a favorite windsurfers’ destination.

Just like many other old places on the island of Korčula, Žrnovo has preserved its tradition of the sword dance, which in Žrnovo is called Moštra and is performed in summer.

Lumbarda

Sandy beaches and the renowned Grk wine

Lumbarda is situated in the eastern part of the island of Korčula, just 6 km from the town of Korčula. Nested by the sea, on the hill slopes, it is surrounded by vineyards of the renowned white wine Grk. Lumbarda is well known for its sandy beaches Vela Pržina, Bilin Žal and Tatinje.

Visitors can find accommodation in apartments, private pensions, a camp and the Lumbarda Hotel, and in the village there are several restaurants, taverns and homesteads serving the island’s specialties.

Korčula

Medieval pearl of the Adriatic

The town of Korčula developed on a peninsula in the north-east part of the island of Korčula, opposite the Pelješac peninsula. Korčula is considered to be the most beautiful medieval planned town in Croatia. A catamaran line connects Korčula with Split and Dubrovnik and a coastal ferry service connects it with Rijeka, Split and Dubrovnik as well as with Bari in Italy during the summer season.

Accommodation can be found in private apartments, campsites and hotels among which Marko Polo and the luxurious Lešić-Dimitri Palace stand out.
