Not only the popular destinations but also this old city on the peninsula is definitely worth a trip. Korçula is a beautiful little town where Marco Polo is from. Rightly called the second most beautiful city, after Dubrovnik, of Dalmatia. Not nearly as crowded and not as hyped as Dubrovnik but of course also touristy. Small alleys, a nice promenade to linger and nice people. A lovely little old town with nice cafes and restaurants, spend a lovely day in this old city!

A beautiful pebble beach with crystal clear sea. Compared to other beaches, it is also possible to go there without shoes. Snorkeling is an awesome activity you can do here.

The cathedral is very beautiful and the climb to the bell tower is necessary for you to have a view of Korcula. The climb may not be easy for people with vertigo. But the effort is rewarded with this magnificent view of the old town.

It’s a great place not to be missed if you are in the area, clean and very beautiful sea. The island is easily reachable with less than an hour of navigation by a taxi boat that leaves from the nearby Vela Luka. Once you arrive on the island, you will enter a very beautiful pine forest inside which there are various signs that indicate the path to get to the 4 beaches. Bringing your own lunch is also recommended since there’s only one restaurant in the area.

5. Vela Przina Beach

If you are looking for sand, it is one of the few beaches on the island that you should visit. This beach is certainly a bit small and quickly crowded in especially August but the water is translucent and the setting is magnificent. Renting deckchairs and parasols for the day is also possible.

A very magnificent medieval tower, very well preserved, overlooking the beautiful sea that surrounds the island. Revelin Tower is preceded by a staircase and is the gateway to the old town of Korcula and the walled city. You can visit, but like everything you have to climb stairs, but it is worth the sacrifice. At night it is also stunning because it is illuminated.

7. Zakerja Tower

A tower near the beach on the north side of Korcula Island. It has a bar with a very good view, and when you go up the old tower, you would see the view of the sea and the city.

8. Korcula Town Museum
