With miles upon miles of vineyards, pine forests and olive groves, Korcula island is one of the greenest in the Adriatic. The wooded mainland tumbles down towards a coastline punctuated by small beaches, quiet coves and the attractive town of Korcula, encircled by fortifications that have withstood the test of time. In an era now past the defensive walls around Korcula would have formed a complete barrier warning off marauding pirates with imposing heights of 12 metres-tall. Today what remains of the medieval stone walls and towers stand in remarkable condition.Read More
Encompassed within the city walls is the magnificent 15th century St. Mark's Cathedral, which features curious artistic details on the facade with a two-tailed mermaid. Inside there's a collection of Renaissance paintings and bronze statues. If iconography is of interest then the Icon Museum is worth a visit with 17th and 18th century ritual objects alongside Byzantine gilded wood pieces, as is the St. Mark's Abbey Treasury which houses its own collection.
There's no shortage of beaches on Korcula island with a handful within easy reach of the old town. These tend to be popular with families but if you're after something quieter, further along the coast there's various pebble and sandy stretches to relax on. The year-round mild weather means Korcula and its beaches can be enjoyed at any time of the year, even outside of the peak summer months.
