Korčula – Authentic Croatian Culture 

Korčula is a beautiful island just north of Dubrovnik. The medieval town of Korčula itself is full of character and is actually the birth place of the famous explorer Marco Polo. It is a much quieter island than the likes of Hvar, a lot more cultural and less touristy a nice place to relax for a few days. 
To get to the island we got a 2 hour ferry from Dubrovnik which cost €20. 

Things to do:

  • Go to the beach: Lumbarda is the only sandy beach on the whole island. It’s about 6km away from Korčula town and is easily accessible by bus or taxi! ( taxi worked out the same price as the bus for 5 of us 25kn each!)
  • Hire a car: the island of Korčula itself is actually quite big. If you hire a car you can drive to the many villages of the island and Pupnatska Luka which I would highly recommend! This cove is beautiful!! 

  • There isn’t an awful lot to do on the island itself! It’s definitely a place you would come to relax, soak up the rays and have good food and wine rather than ‘sight see’ as such. 


  • Silk: this is a very casual, trendy restaurant that offers Asian street food – for a taste of something different. The food here is delicious and reasonably priced.

  • Bistro Gajeta: Croatian cuisine has a big Italian influnce so lots of restaurants serve pizza and pasta including this one! The customer service was very good and the food was yum and reasonably priced.

  • Konoba Aurora- this restaurant does great coffees and apple pie! The chef actually came out to us and his passion convinced us to try his authentic octopus salad, one of Croatia’s famous dishes!

You may notice I keep saying “reasonably priced” this is because nothing in Croatia is cheap very much European prices! 

Hope your enjoyed!
