Beach Banje in Korcula was recently featured in Guardian’s Travel Writing Competition.
Under the title ‘Beach: Bathing by numbers – A holiday to satisfy a culture vulture and a beach bum? Not easy. But then Jaime Gill discovered Croatia‘ Jamie Gill writes about her experience of beaches and culture in Croatia.
Here is an excerpt about Korcula:
‘ Beach 2 was just four hours away by Jadrolinija’s dawn ferry, winding gorgeously through that meteor tail, to the island of Korcula. Though it markets itself as the birthplace of Marco Polo, Korcula Town would do just as well to emphasise its nearby coves, from where the gentlest of swims unveils a jaw-dropping view of uncannily well-preserved medieval walls and fearsome forts. One of which doubles as a spectacular cocktail lounge, Massimo, reached by a terrifyingly rickety stepladder, though well worth it for the panoramic Adriatic sunsets.’
