Bratinja Luka Bay and Beach

Bratinja Luka pebble beach

Bratinja Luka Beach is located in a small bay on the southern shores of the Island in the Defora region. The beach is made up of white pebbles/shingles with some rocky parts of the bay along its sides. A popular activity in the bay is snorkeling.

Being one of the remote bays on the island, the waters are clean and transparent making this bay well-liked by locals as well as (some) tourists. Facing South-East, the bay is sunny from midday until early afternoon. Natural shade is provided by several mature pine trees on the eastern side of the bay.

Due to its location, this beach is completely sheltered from the Maestral and Bura while open to Siloko/Jugo winds. (Windrose of Korcula) – see the photo below:

The access to the bay and beach is via a narrow, partly asphalted – partly tarmac road leading from Zrnovo via Postrana towards the Defora region (visitors map)

Once you reach the crossroads in Postrana, the road leads uphill then turn right at another crossroads and follow the road signs downhill through the wooded parts and vineyards towards the coast. At a certain point, you would need to proceed on foot via a small path through the field and walk a further 220 meters to reach the beach. There is no immediate car access to the beach.

There are no cafes/restaurants/shops in the bay so bring your own refreshment. Parasol or beach shelter is also recommended in the summer months.
