Defora – Korcula Island

Defora - Korcula Island

Defora is a region on the south-east side of Korcula island which includes the countryside and vineyards of Zrnovo as well as the stretch of the south-east coast (between Raznjc and Pupnatska Luka) featuring several secluded beaches and bays. The region has some fantastic walking paths offering breathtaking views over the channel. Great area to watch sunsets 🙂 Some people consider Defora as the most beautiful part of the Island’s countryside.

Visiting Defora:

Defora road sign

Some of the roads to the region are asphalted while most of them are tarmac/macadam only.

There is no public transport available to visit the region, so you can either hire a taxi [cost approx 200 kunas per car (not per person)] or rent a bicycle, scooter or car for a day.

It is also important to know that not all the bays are accessible by road – for some of the bays you would need to walk (15-20 minutes uphill as well as downhill)
