Beach time

Want to spend some time relaxing and swimming in crystal clear waters?

We picked few places worth visiting.

BANJE

The nearest beach to the Apartments On the Sunny Side. Take the steps downwards and you’re there in only 3 min. Banje beach can be a bit crowded in peak season. Keep walking and you will findyour place at the rocky beach with the view of Korcula Old Town.

For guest looking for some activity, there’s Oreb Sailing School at the Banje beach where you can learn to sail or windsurf or rent kayak or surf board.

BACVA

Bacva is a very small, lovely beach near Pupnatska Luka and Pupnat village. There is a small konoba restaurant on the beach offering home made food. It is about 13 km from Korcula Town. It’s a bit of adventure to reach it by car due to a very narrow street but it has a lot of lay-bys so that cars can pass each other.

ZITNA

Zitna beach is a charming little bay 26 km from Korcula Town. It can be reached by car and there is parking available. The bay of Zavalatica is just around the corner and Cara village is only 3 km away.

Probably the best thing about Zitna is the mixture of blue and green color of the clear sea waters. The sea floor is partly sandy and those large sandy patches are locally called Bjankura. Come and experience the most unique colors.
