A short ferry ride from the town of Orebić takes you to Korčula Town, on the Island Of Korčula. Some people describe it as a ” mini Dubrovnik” It certainly has the towers, the city walls, restaurants, bars and souvenir stalls although generally less tourists!
We recently took the foot ferry over with some friends so here are a few photos, plus a couple of facts for those of you who like that sort of thing:
🌳 The island of Korčula is the sixth-largest Adriatic island, stretching nearly 47km in length.
🌳 Dense pine forests led the original Greek settlers to call the island Korkyra Melaina (Black Corfu).
🌳Outside the main town you can explore the many coves, olive groves and of course vineyards. Some of the best Croatian whites is produced from the indigenous grape pošip, particularly from the areas around the villages of Čara and Smokvica. The grk grape, cultivated around Lumbarda, also produces quality dry white wine.
Definitely worth a visit when you are staying at The Sea Captain’s House
