Korcula Sights

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 a peninsula into the sea. Korcula is also one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic and has marvelous nature. 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.

Korcula Tourism

Highlights of the Old Town of Korcula include the Cathedral of St. Marco and the house of Marco Polo. Both are essential stops for any visitor. 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 performance of Moreska. This is a spectacular knight combat dance conducted with swords. Korcula is certainly one of the must-sees for travelers to Croatia. Whether you're looking for a beach vacation, wine tasting, or just real relaxation, you'll find it here.

Where to stay in Korcula

Tiny Korcula Town doesn't have much scope for large hotel developments, being protected by its position on the UNESCO World Heritage List, but there are some gems of intimate 4 star boutique hotels that we have unearthed that will make your stay on the island a luxurious one. As for apartments in Korcula the choice is wider, with options both directly in and close to the old town. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.

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 included in your vacation package or consider for adding later.

What I love about Korcula...

“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.”
