You’ll get the full flavour of Korcula on this tour. We’ll kick off with an hour-long scenic drive, passing by ancient settlements, vine-striped slopes, and silvery olive groves on our way to the western part of the island. Our first port of call is Vela Luka, a seaside town set in the middle of a sweeping bay. You’ll have some free time here to explore the town, or stop for a drink in one of the cafés that line up along the promenade. It’s on to the picturesque town of Blato next, where we’ll stop at Barilo. It’s a small, family-run ethnographic museum that showcases national costumes, traditional furnishings and local embroidery. After a good nose around, we’ll press on to our next stop – a local winery. Posip and Grk are the big names in the region, and you’ll get to sample both alongside platters of locally made cheeses.
This coach trip lets you tick off all of Korčula’s best bits, without any of the hassle. From the port, you’ll drive past lush vineyards and olive groves to the smallest village on the island, Pupnat. En route, there’ll be stops at a couple of high-up viewpoints. One gives you widescreen views of Korčula Island’s namesake city, and you’ll be able to snap photos of Pupnat Bay’s sapphire-blue waters from the other. You’ll also detour through a few of the island’s timewarp villages, like Zrnovo, one of the oldest, where some houses look exactly as they did hundreds of years ago. The village of Lumbarda is your final stopping point. Here, you’ll have some free time to wander before refuelling with a snack and getting back on the bus to make the journey back to the ship.
You’ll cruise around the Korcula archipelago today, passing by picture-perfect islands and stopping at seaside towns. We’ll start with an hour-long sail out to the islands, through the Peljesac Channel and past Majsan Island, home to a cluster of prehistoric ruins. We’ll glide around the island of Vrnik, too, famous for its white limestone quarry, before making our way to the mainland. We’ll drop anchor in the pretty town of Orebic, set in the south-west corner of the Peljesac peninsula, where you’ll have some time to explore its sandy coves and old churches. From here, we’ll push on to Racisce, a fishing town that curves around a small bay and is framed by hills and sandy vineyards. You’ll have just over an hour to relax here – lie back on the beach, swim in the Adriatic, or head to a café for a carafe of local wine.
