Korcula Holidays

Welcome to 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.

"I wanted to send you an e-mail now that we are back from our wonderful holiday. My wife and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and the team at Diamond Star for arranging a truly unique style of holiday that we are still talking about to friends and family two weeks after we came home. The places we have visited, and the things we have seen were truly amazing, it will take a month or more to sort through our photos"  Andrew and June Welch - 24 Oct 2022

"Back from our holiday to Istanbul/Cappadocia what an awesome holiday. The hot air balloon was out of this world. Thank you Diamond Star for making it all possible special thanks to Nazan. I recommend this company to make your dreams come true."  Mrs Angela Bailey - 6 Oct 2022

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
