General information

Situated on the western side of the island of Korcula

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. 

Ferry and catamaran lines connect Vela Luka with Split, whereas bus lines connect it with Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Sarajevo. Visitors can find accommodation in Vela Luka itself, in holiday homes, apartments and rooms as well as in hotels Korkyra and Posejdon. Gradina, Triporte, Poplat, Pičena, Mikulina Luka, Tudorovica, Stratinčica and Žukova are some of the larger coves which surround Vela Luka and places where visitors can also choose to stay in peaceful holiday apartments, houses or campsites. During summer excursion lines run to Proizd, but we also organise special transfers according to our guests' desires.

Marked walking and bicycle trails stretch across the area of Vela Luka, whereas diving centres organise dives and diving schools.

Vela Luka is the most developed Adriatic region in terms of olive growing, and you can enjoy its excellent olive oil in the restaurants and agritourism businesses of Vela Luka.

To find out more about the production of olive oil, you can visit the Zlokić Collection of Olive Growing and Olive Oil, where you will have a chance to see an ethnographic collection related to olive growing and to sample and buy olive oil.

The Vela Luka area has been inhabited since prehistoric times, which is witnessed by the findings from the archaeological site Vela Spila, located in the vicinity of the town. The findings are exhibited at the Vela Luka Cultural Centre whereas in the summer months Vela Spila is open for visitors. The Cultural Centre also preserves an important collection of modern and contemporary art. In addition, exhibitions of contemporary Croatian artists' work are regularly organised at the Centre. 

During the summer months the event Luško lito also takes place here. It is a cultural and entertainment happening during which visitors have the opportunity to attend concerts and performances. We strongly recommend that you visit the folklore evenings with performances of old dances. The most attractive among them is Kumpanija – a dance performed by men with swords.
