Known as one of Croatia’s largest and most attractive islands, inland Korcula is littered with picturesque vineyards and olive groves while its sun-drenched coast boasts over 190 rocky coves, sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
Korčula town is famed for its preserved medieval fortifications; towers rise, ancient walls still protect the harbour and a central square sits overlooked by the 14th century Cathedral of St Mark.
With size on its side, this island is the perfect choice for a holiday that combines beach time with active exploration – walking trails wriggle across the island, connecting Franciscan Monasteries with Korčula’s best viewpoints.
The island is best accessed by road from the mainland's Peljesac Peninsula where there is a short crossing from Orebic to Domince. Alternatively, catamarans connect Korcula Town with Dubrovnik and island hopping car ferries connect the western island town of Vela Luka with Hvar and Split.
