Anyone been to Korcula, Croatia

The island and town sound charming, has anyone traveled there and if so could you tell me about it?

Hi Lori,

We were in Korcula last year on a Rick Steve's tour and it was wonderful. The old town is charming and touristy but we did have some delicious food and a very relaxing time. We stayed at the Marco Polo hotel and it had a great position to view the town. On the way to Korcula we spent the afternoon at Hvar and I absolutely loved that island. One tip if you go to any of the islands is that the beaches are very rocky and there are sea urchin everywhere in the water. If you plan to go in the water maker sure you wear the proper footwear.

The Dalmatian islands are fond memories of our travels. You really can't go wrong.

Yes, it's very charming. Last fall we did the same tour as April. (maybe not at the same date). Beaches around Korcula are pebbles. We wanted sand beach (there are very few), took bus to nearby Lumbarda and from the last stop of the bus it's about 5 minutes walk (or less) to a beautiful sandy beach. Just few people were there.

Stayed there for 3 nights, 2 days. One day we hired a car and drove around the island. We went to Bacva Bay, Pupnat Bay and a few other places. The scenery driving down to bays from the main road was stunning! Korcula town itself is as the others have said is charming. We accidentally drove to a hill just above the old town and stopped and saw the view down to the town and mainland. You see that view a lot on travel brochures/postcards. Absolutely gorgeous! It was the first time in our married life I was glad my husband took a wrong turn.

Yes - it's a wonderful little island. We stayed one night and would love to go back. The old town with the castle is very charming and you can walk everywhere. We also took an evening boat ride around the island which I'd recommend too. Have fun!
