As I mentioned in my previous post, we stayed on the west side of the island and therefore we did not explore much of the East and North of Korčula Island, Croatia.
Since we only had 5 days, each one was dedicated to one location of the island, and because the East is more developed, in theory, it would have more things to see.
However, as we fancy those more unfamiliar beaches, and we love exploring routes that are barely on the map, we end up preferring and therefore spending more time on the west and south.
The eastern side has several beaches, and we passed by two or three of them to have a look.
Although what I really fell in love with, was Korčula Town.
I believe of all the small seaside towns I’ve been to, Korčula Town is undoubtedly the most beautiful and charming.
Plus, because it was September, the city was lively but not crowded as it is known to be in July and August.
I loved the old medieval part, where at the top of the surrounding walls right at the waterfront, there is a palm-lined street with several restaurants. It is a delight to sit there and watch the flow of people, boats, etc.
Other than that, the centre is made up of narrow alleys where cars are not allowed. These stone steps lanes are so cute, and you can go up and down passing through various shops, bars, restaurants…
What to see?
– St Mark’s Cathedral, where you can go to the top to have fantastic views of the town.
– Gradski muzej Korčula – Korčula Town Museum
– Marco Polo Museum
TIP: to take that beautiful picture where you can see the entire old town, go to the road called Ulica 45.
