Korcula Town

By Jane Foster, your Korcula expert

Why go to Korcula?

Medieval monuments and contemporary design

The island’s main attraction is Korčula old town, a lovely tiny fortified medieval settlement made up of romantic cobbled alleys and proud Venetian-era stone buildings. In the heart of the old town, the ultra-trendy but extremely expensive Lesic Dimitri Palace is another perfect reason to come here, if you’re lucky enough to be able to afford it.

Beaches and bathing

Besides its charming old buildings, Korčula has several worthwhile beaches – sandy Pržina beach near Lumbarda is the best known, but the tiny rocky islet of Proizd near Vela Luka is my personal favourite.

Food and drink

Also out of town, you’ll find some excellent family-run agritourisms that double as gourmet eateries, with Konoba Mate and Konoba Zure ranking among Dalmatia’s best restaurants. And if wine’s your thing, take a ferry over to the mainland for a half-day Wine tasting on Pelješac guided tour.
