Vrbovica – Korcula

Vrbovica Beach and bay - Korcula Island

Vrbovica is a large bay situated along the road from Korcula town to Racisce, on the northern shore of the Island.

It used to be a non urbanized bay with some stone masons quarries owned by couple of Zrnovo families. Nowadays it is a place where young families from the village moved in to built their homes at the very sea front. Rows of beautiful detached houses with flats and apartments for holiday rentals are now encircling the whole bay.

There are several pebble / shingle beaches in the bay so there is plenty of places to sunbathe and swim. Also, there are several stone jetties where one can have a fun jumping into the sea.

Due to its location, the bay is often used by passing by sailors as safe anchorage point as it’s closed and sheltered from all unpleasant winds ( including Bura, Siloko and Gregal)

Being just across the waters from Viganj and just off the Peljesac Channel, Vrbovica is a good place to learn how to  windsurf. Good for snorkeling too.

Vrbovica features a nice family owned restaurant/ cafes run by Villa Castelo Pension as well as a campsite. There is a regular, daily bus service from Korcula Town to Racisce.
