Welcome to Korcula Island

Korcula Island

One of the bigger Adriatic islands, Korcula Island boasts beautiful views, secluded beaches, vineyards and olive groves, and pretty towns and harbours. Korcula Town is the island's main town situated on the north west coast and the old town, sticking out into the sea, is typically Dalmatian, likened to a small Dubrovnik, with its red roofed houses, fortifications and enclosing walls. Marco Polo is said to have been born here and his house is now a museum. The town is also famous for its 15th-century Moreska sword dance which is performed during summer. Other main towns on the island include the tourist centre of Lumbarda surrounded by vineyards and coves, and the port town of Vela Luka on the east coast.
