How to get from Mljet to Korcula
Getting from Mljet to Korcula is one of the frequently asked questions in our travel forum as well as in emails I receive daily. So, here are all options now listed on this page.
The important things to keep in your mind regarding this transport are as follows:
- Travelling directly from Mljet to Korcula on public transport is only possible during the peak season (Mid April to October)
- Indirect travel via Prapratno on Peljesac or via Dubrovnik is available all year round.
- Day trip with a fast boat from Mljet to Korcula (and vice versa) can be good, flexible and not so expensive option but they depend on the weather so they are not as reliable as regular public transport ferry boats.
Direct Ferries from Mljet to Korcula:
- April to October – foot passenger ferry from Korcula to Mljet – get your reservation in advance directly via krilo.hr website
- July and August passenger ferry from Mljet to Korcula: Polace (Mljet) to Korcula Town foot passenger ferry – Get your ticket the day before if possible as there are often long queues. Tickets sell-out pretty quickly in the peak season.

Indirect Ferries + Bus from Mljet to Korcula:
- All year around travel option for Sobra (Mljet) via Prapratno to Korcula – (see below map) – take a ferry from Sobra to Prapratno and from Prapratno, get a bus to Orebic or Korcula.
Take morning ferry, not afternoon ones, as buses stop in Prapratno at 4 pm.
Once you arrive in Prapratno, just walk for 15 minutes up the hill to small cafe ‘Bela Vista’ where a bus stops on it way from Dubrovnik to Orebic or Korcula. (see views from the cafe)
- All year around travel option for Mljet via Dubrovnik to Korcula – this is a much longer travel option which is good for people who would like to spend morning or afternoon in Dubrovnik and from there take a bus to Korcula.
