Getting from Vis Island to Korcula

travelling from Vis to Korcula

How to get from Vis to Korcula is a question that is frequently asked by people who fly to Split Airport and would like to visit Island of Vis, Hvar and Korcula Island as well as Dubrovnik, from where they fly back home.

As Vis Island is in fair distance from Korcula Island, it seems reasonable to assume it will be easy and fast to reach Korcula from Vis by ferry. Unfortunately, it is currently not as straight forward as it appears, because there are no direct ferries from Vis Island to Korcula.

However, there are several also very pleasant other options to consider:

a/ The first option is to take a ferry from Vis to Split  and then either bus or ferry from Split to Korcula. This journey lasts at least from morning to the late afternoon (for detailed Split to Korcula travel options check my Getting from Split to Korcula post.

b/ Another option is to adjust your travels from Vis to Korcula for Tuesdays when you can take a ferry from Vis to Hvar and then ferry from Hvar to Korcula.

Once on Hvar, you can choose to spend the rest of the day there sightseeing while waiting for afternoon ferry that sails to Korcula Town.

Alternatively, you can take a bit earlier ferry from Hvar to Vela Luka and proceed by bus to Korcula Town. Choosing this option, you will have opportunity to see the whole Korcula island while taking 40 minutes ride on comfortable and air-conditioned bus across the island.

It is a pity this option of travel is available on Tuesdays only as this can be a very convenient way of visiting all three islands in one day. Let’s be optimistic 🙂 and hope this will change sooner than later…

    Thank you for this helpful information. I am interested in option b/ One question is whether this Tuesday ferry that goes to Hvar is a car ferry or passengers only?
    Appreciate any feedback on this

    Hi Alex, all ferries from and to Hvar Town are foot passenger only. Hvar town is a car-free zone.
