Korcula Beaches, Bays and Swimming Spots

beach in korcula town
Korcula has a lot of small and secluded beaches all over the island, but the ‘best’ or let’s say most popular ones, are sandy beach Vela Przina in Lumbarda and pebble beach, Pupnatska Luka. Although these are very popular beaches, there are a lot of hidden and secluded swimming spots as well as beaches and bays that are worth visiting and spending a day there.

Beaches on the Island are recognised as being some of the best in Croatia. One of the advantages of being surrounded by water is that wherever you go the beach is never too far away. With more than 150 miles of varied coastline, the Island offers wide-ranging types of beaches, rocky, sandy and pebble beaches, hidden coves with clear waters.. – a trip to the beach is an essential part of any visit to Korcula.

On these pages, you will find photographs, videos and comments of Korcula popular swimming spots and beaches. The beaches are classified as pebble, rock, sandy etc. There is also info about access to beaches, location maps and advice – have a look:

Beaches on the rest of Korcula Island:

 

Whilst a beach holiday is often associated with good weather, Korcula benefits from an all year round mild weather. During the autumn and winter months walks to our Defora beaches are very popular, as they provide some of the best landscapes and views of the Korcula and surrounding island of Lastovo, Mljet and Peljesac. Beaches, bays and swimming spots are nice places to walk in the winter or out of season when temperatures are not suitable swimming or sunbathing.

Have a look some nice winter day photos and videos from various Korcula Beaches:
