    Hi Craig,

    Romantic things to do (in my opinion) would be to walk around Old Town of Korcula + walk Sveti Nikola – Novi Puti- Hober + Forteca + Sv Anton:

    https://www.korculainfo.com/panorama_korcula.htm

    Visit Dubrovnik and National Park on Mljet Island ( very romantic places) too.

    Check http://www.korcula-croatia.com/ for excursions.

    Re Kilt – you will deffinitly get drinks. I don’t think people will laugh to redicule it – they can only be pleasently surprised!

    Thanks for adopting Croatian team !

    hi dylan

    korcula is not as sofisticated regarding cycling as one can expect.

    there is no designated cycling lanes or similar, no cycling clubs, no even cycling shops etc… 😳 πŸ˜₯

    BUT – there are a lot of good routes to cycle on and off road, so i expect you will have a good time here.

    therefore, i suggest you to bring your bike and enjoy various routes ( general local map is on sale around the town). also, bring all necessary repair kits, as there is no a lot of choice here

    have a great time!

    Hi Dietrich,

    There is no dedicated cycling lines on the Island of Korcula. Nonetheless, as I am cyclist myself, I would still

    confim thay cycling on Korcula is quite safe, as there is no a lot of traffic here.

    There are various good routes to follow – (hard to choose the best one) – have a look at the maps page : https://www.korculainfo.com/maps/

    Most of the roads are asfalted, but there are some non-asfalt roads for more adventurous, perhaps mountbiking, tours.

    If you are mountbiker, I would reccommend routes around Lumbarda and Zrnovo, especially roads around Defora ( southern side of Island near Zrnovo) as well as Kneze-Pupnat one.

    Otherwise, just stay on main roads, make shure you keep extremly right and beware of parked cars – ready ( as always) to open their doors right into your face, (and then say: sorry, i didn’t see you ) πŸ˜‰

    Hi Anna,

    The easiest way to reach Mljet is with ‘tour’ organised by local travel agent. It will take you from Korcula Old Town to village Pomena ( on Mljet) near the entrance to National Park.

    Altenatevly, you can drive ( take a bus) from Korcula to Trstenik (Peljesac) and then take ferry to Pomena (Mljet).

    For tour to Mljet from Korcula have a look at :
    http://www.korcula-croatia.com/mljet.htm

    Also, have a look at Map Mljat page for location of places:

    Hi Stief,

    Same apply for Vela Luka – couple of clubs, nothing spectacular.

    Vela Luka is 50 km away from Korcula

    Hi Miriam,

    There are couple of night clubs in Korcula as well as some at other places on the island.

    There is nothing spectacular about them- just basic night-club feeling. πŸ™

    Korcula is not really a clubbing place, as some other places along croatian coast.

    πŸ’‘ I guess you would be better of to choose Hvar if you are after clubbing mostly…

    No, Hotel Marco Polo hasn’t have outside swimming pool, but neighbouring Hotel Liburna has one.

    I believe you can use that one for free as both hotels belong to same company…

    Hi Michelle

    Unfortunately, there is no women waterpolo team in Korcula. πŸ™„

    πŸ™„

    Waterpolo is here played by men only ( ?! πŸ™„ πŸ™„ )

    so you would need to try somewhere else for your waterpolo lessons.

    I am not even shure about Croatia and it’s female waterpolo clubs… would need to check that one…

    The club’s name is KPK which means Korculanski Plivacki Klub ( translated: Swimming Club of Korcula).

    BTW – try Vela Luka waterpolo club – perhaps they can help?

    I am not shure how good are their boards, but try this website:

    https://www.korculainfo.com/sailing/

    They have sailing and windsurfing school in Korcula, so I guess their boards would be decentΒ 

    in reply to: Worth hiring a car on Korcula? #21597

    Edita
    Keymaster

    There are a lot of local buses going all over the island so all places are easily accessable. I’m shure you can have a good time without a car.

    You can rent a bicycle if you want to explore on your own – have a look at pages : https://www.korculainfo.com/beaches/

    and

    https://www.korculainfo.com

    for more info about the island.

    But if you still need a car you can book it here:

    You will definetly get place on ferry as foot-only passengers. Catamaran has limited number of seats so you never know.

    There is direct service catamaran Split-Korcula, but timetables are not yet known for your dates

    πŸ˜₯

    in reply to: From Split airport to Korcula in August #21594

    Per, your arrival in Split is fairly eary in the day, so I would suggest you to use either Split-Vela Luka ferry or catamaran and then bus to Korcula+taxi to Lumbarda, or wait for afternoon return of catamaran from Split to Korcula.

    I just checked Jadrolinija timetable and it says for 09/07 Korcula -Split:

    KOR?ULA 09.07.2004 departs 12:20 arrival SPLIT 18:00

    Personaly, I think Jadrolinija journey is most pleasant among all possibilities.

    For timetables see :

    https://www.korculainfo.com/travel/

    For airconditioned room in Lumbarda-my choice would be Lumbarda Hotel!

    For prices and availability check :
