Korcula Vacations & Tours
The Island of Korcula, sometimes called the Emerald Isle, is the sixth largest island in Croatia. This island is a bit of a hidden treasure because it is located a little farther away compared to Hvar and Brac. The three main towns on the Island of Korcula are Korcula Town, Vela Luka, and Lumbarda. There is evidence of inhabitants on the island since the Stone Age.
The island is small, approximately 20 miles long, but the Island of Korcula is packed with adventures and interesting things to do. The island is narrow, only about 4 to 5 miles wide in most places.
Korcula’s Old Town has Venetian-style buildings with red roofs and a wall surrounding the town, reminiscent of Dubrovnik. Because of the similarities, the Old Town is often referred to as, “Little Dubrovnik.” There are many cultural activities and music events throughout the year. The view of Pelješac peninsula is spectacular.
If you enjoy wine, take part in one of the many wine-tasting tours on the island. Korcula vineyards are prized for their white grape, pošip, the key ingredient in many of the best wines in Croatia.
Hidden coves near the island offer you plenty of privacy to swim, sunbathe and relax. On the western side of the Island of Korcula is Vela Luka, famous for Vela Spila, a cave which offers memorable photo possibilities. Proizd features a spectacular beach. Oh, and sunsets on the Island of Korcula? Legendary.
