Korcula

Croatia

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 on 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 I love about Korcula

Josipa

Adriatic Destination Expert & Dubrovnik City Host

I love Korcula for so many reasons. The charming Old town which tells stories about the life of Marco Polo leaves me speechless every time I go back there. The lively main square, where you feel like a local no matter how touristy it can be during summer time is a special place where you can always hear some smalltalk between locals. This place is so vibrant and so historical at the same time. There are so many hidden beaches and peaceful places around the island that I always discover something new and something special about Korcula.

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.
