We spent 2 days on the island of Korcula where we visited 2 different towns, Korcula town, and Vela Luka.
Korcula town was very small and quaint with the typical terracotta roof tiles and small alley ways. It was an incredibly windy little town which is partly what it’s known for. The alley ways are even designed in a certain way to direct the northerly wind out of the town and the cooler southerly wind in. They have plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from either along the sea or inside the alleys.
In the image above towards the middle-left, you can see the top of a castle turret. This is actually a cocktail bar where you can even sit on the rooftop and they deliver cocktails to you by a pulley system. However, it’s quite a tourist attraction so the cocktails are very overpriced so I recommend going to some of the other bars or even restaurants to get drinks as the prices are far more reasonable.
I definitely suggest going up the bell tower for the best view of the town. But is very claustrophobic going up there to the point where 2 people can’t stand next to or pass each other.
The next town is Vela Luke where the town surrounds the harbour. It’s a very pretty town on the island of Korcula.
We went up to the Vela Spila, a cave which required a very steep, uphill hike and although the distance wasn’t a lot, it was exhausting!
Although this town is very picturesque, I would say that it’s something that you can miss as there isn’t a lot to do here. There were some cute bars and ice cream shops but not a lot else.
Next Stop, Vis!
