Guide to Korcula

Croatia’s hidden gem, filled with adventure and authenticity.

Often likened to a miniature Dubrovnik, the Croatian island of Korčula is located just off the Dalmatian coast. Situated within close proximity to the islands of Brač, Hvar and Mljet, Korčula is the perfect destination for voyagers looking to immerse themselves in the history and culture of this authentic Adriatic gem.

Bursting with character, Korčula is the fabled birthplace of the renowned explorer Marco Polo and it is believed that settlements existed on the island thousands of years BC. Today, Korčula is the sixth-largest Adriatic island, rich in vineyards, olive groves, and small picture-perfect villages. Much quieter than some of the surrounding Adriatic islands, this lush outpost is argued to be one of Croatia’s most relaxing destinations, making it a perfect place to unwind and explore peacefully during your yacht charter vacation. 

Nature lovers exploring Korčula will not be disappointed, surrounded by a haven of lush greenery and crystalline seas, there are ample amounts of areas to explore both on the ocean and ashore. For those wanting to immerse themselves in the rich ocean life, there's nothing to beat snorkeling from your own yacht. With so many tranquil anchorages to choose from, why not sail over to visit Zavalatica Bay. Nestled on the sea’s edge, the bay boasts unforgettable clear waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling. The area is also fantastic for canoers and kayakers to glide across the opal ocean and explore the nearby coves. 

With a multitude of tranquil spots for relaxation on the island, be sure to taste some of the luxurious wines that Korčula has to offer. After a long lazy day in the sunshine, come ashore to decompress and reminisce with family and friends over a selection of refreshing drinks. Feel free to head over to the town of Smokvica which is famous for the production of two white wines, in particular, Posip and Rukatac.

A luxury yacht charter often fuels an adventurous spirit and for those searching for an escapade, there is nothing quite like the thrill of an off-road buggy. Get off the beaten track and explore a side to Korcula rarely seen by most visitors. Drive through the rugged countryside in a two-seater buggy and pull up to the scenic coastline for breathtaking views of the island. For more adventure-fuelled fun, located above the town of Vela Luka lies Vela Spila; a large open-air domed cave that has been continuously occupied since the last ice age twenty thousand years ago. As one of the most important prehistoric cave dwellings in Europe, this is one site not to be missed.
