Korcula

Croatia
Korcula travel packages

Marco Polo's hometown! Korcula holds a privileged position among the Croatian islands. There are more legends, tales, and monuments here than anywhere else.

One of the best-preserved medieval towns in the Mediterranean, Korcula is instantly recognizable. Its red-roofed houses and stunning walled-in Old Town jut out into the sea. Korcula is also one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic and has marvelous natural scenery. Korcula sits on the edge of nature. Look forward to rolling hills for hiking and cycling. Of course, Korcula boasts a gorgeous seaside, with a variety of pebbly and sandy beaches. Lumbarda, a quaint fishing village, is another highlight. The island's position in the Adriatic makes it an ideal stopover when traveling between Dubrovnik and Hvar. It's a pleasant destination for a several-day stay.

Highlights of the Old Town of Korcula include the Cathedral of St. Marco and Marco Polo's original home. The island produces some of the finest white wines in the region too. It's a short trip away from the neighboring Peljesac peninsula. This area is famous for its high-quality wine, both red and white. Korcula is rich in culture and tradition, with a storied past dating back to ancient Greek times. If you are lucky during your stay, you will catch a Moreska performance. This is a spectacular combat dance conducted with swords and in heavy armor. Korcula is certainly one of the must-sees for travelers in Croatia. Whether you're looking for a beach vacation, wine tasting, or just real relaxation, you'll find it here.

What we love about Korcula

Ivana

Dubrovnik City Host & Adriatic Destination Expert

Not just the city, but the entire island of Korcula has wonderful scenery. If you are looking for an island that will give you a bit of peace from all the hustle of Croatia's cities, Korcula is definitely it. There are so many secluded bays and beaches, charming villages all over the island, that you will fall in love instantly.

Korcula is a fabulous, low-key alternative to Hvar and the place to go for those who dread over-tourism. The medieval walled Old Town boasts picturesque Venetian-style houses with red rooftops and the island is surrounded by crystal-clear sea with many secluded coves and beautiful pebble beaches.

What I love about Korcula is that you can have both it both ways - you be alone on a remote beach during the day, but still enjoy busy city vibes in the evening, strolling around narrow streets.

Where to stay in Korcula

Tiny Korcula Town doesn't have much room for large hotel developments, being protected by its position on the UNESCO World Heritage List, but there are several intimate 4-5 star boutique hotels that we have unearthed that will make your stay on the island a luxurious one. As for apartments, there are plenty to choose from, with options both directly in and close to the Old Town.

Things to do in Korcula

We recommend getting to know Korcula's Old Town with a private guide. An hour is enough to learn the history of the town itself and the island. After that there are plenty of ways to take advantage of Korcula's prime position. Our fishing and lunch expedition is hugely popular and if you want to keep active while you eat, a gastro tour by bike is an excellent choice. If seeing more of the island is your desire, then a private driving tour of the island with a local is the only way to go. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider for adding later.

We went on the trip we wanted but we didn't have to do any of the time-consuming planning and we didn't have to worry about any of the logistics. It's the only way to travel. We are so happy with how it all went. It was all flawless. I don't think we can ever travel without this kind of help again. Superb!
