Korčula is definitely one of Croatia’s most treasured islands. In Ancient Greece, the island of Korčula has played an integral part in the cultural and commercial life of the Mediterranean. The traces can still be seen in the traditional “Moreška” dance, the itineraries of Marco Polo, and the golden wine of Korčula. The main destination is Korčula Town, often called “Little Dubrovnik” since it gives off a similar vibe with its medieval churches, palaces, stone houses, and orange rooves. With its rich cultural heritage, such as the St Mark’s Cathedral and the house where the famous Marco Polo was born, Korčula is appropriately called a real city museum.
Other than the picture-perfect Old town that may be the focal point for most visitors, this island is literally covered with amazing beaches and secluded bays that provide plenty of opportunities to swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic. A great example is the small fisherman’s village of Lumbarda, well-known for its beaches covered with fine sand and surrounded by broad vineyards of locally produced and world-famous white wines. On your way to these amazing places, you will be able to make a stop in the wild, isolated bays where your eyes will be amazed by beaches and colors, which can be accessed only by boat.
A perfect blend of wild nature, peaceful coves, lively towns, and genuine local hospitality as well as the fantastic gastronomy scene on the island of Korčula guarantees a holiday you will always remember.
