Korcula

The tiny Island of Korcula entices sun-seekers with its attractive beaches, beautifully preserved medieval town and crystal-clear waters.

Home to the famous explorer, Marco Polo, who can lay claim to having been the first travel writer, Korcula is certainly a place to inspire. It is undoubtedly one of the best-preserved Medieval and Renaissance towns in the Mediterranean. Its buttresses, palaces, towers and spires are a picturesque blend of Gothic and Renaissance architecture, mostly dating from the 15th and 16th centuries.

The magnificent Cathedral of St. Mark is, astonishingly, one of around 150 churches on the island which is still in use. Korcula is known for its stone-carving and you will see many fine sculptures by modern sculptors such as Krsnic and Mestrovic as well as their more ancient counterparts.

As you enter the narrow streets of the old town through the dramatic Revelin Tower, with its ancient drawbridge, it is easy to imagine the generations of visitors who have gone before you. The old town itself is relatively sleepy, although Korcula also has a mix of livelier bars and a good choice of restaurants outside the old city.

Korcula is just as famous for its wines and olive oil as it is for tourism, and in particular its strong, white wine is renowned. Keen ramblers will enjoy exploring the vineyards and olive groves of the lush interior. Taxi boats depart each morning for the nearby islands of Badija, or Proizd, with its pristine pebble beaches.

Just one mile away across the water is the picturesque Peljesac Peninsula, known for its olive groves and vineyards. Regular ferries travel across to the resort of Orebic, a friendly holiday spot with attractive pebble and sandy beaches.

"First impressions when we saw the gulet was 'wow!' The crew were so welcoming and the cabin beyond our expectations. Everything was perfect, the food was plentiful and delicious. The gulet was spacious and comfortable and sleeping on deck under the stars and watching the sunrise is something really special. Thank you, thank you. An unforgettable holiday that was so, so special..."  Mr & Mrs Guy

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
