Korcula is definitely one of Croatia’s most treasured islands. In the ancient Greek period, the island of Korčula has played an important role as an integral part of the cultural and commercial life of the Mediterranean. The traces can still be seen in the traditional “Moreška” dance, the itineraries of Marco Polo, and the golden wine of Korčula.
The main resort is Korcula Town, often called “Little Dubrovnik” since it gives off a familiar feel with its medieval fortifications, churches, palaces, stone houses, and orange roofs. With its rich cultural and historical heritage, such as St Mark’s Cathedral and the house of birth of Marco Polo, Korcula is appropriately called a real city museum. Except for a picture-perfect Old town that may be the focal point for most visitors, on the seaside, there are many hidden places to experience tranquility and to enjoy the abundance of nature and wildlife on this stunning island. The coast of the island is literally dotted with amazing beaches and secluded bays that provide plenty of opportunities to swim or snorkel in crystal clear water. On your way to these amazing places, you will be able to make a stop in wild, solitary bays with amazing beaches and colors, which can be accessed only by boat.
