Beach time

Posted on

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 but then you can walk a bit more and find your 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.

Korcula is also famous for long and beautiful sandy beaches. The most popular ones are in Lumbarda hidden behind agaves and vineyards.

BILIN ZAL

Bilin Zal is located on the eastern shores of Lumbarda. The beach has no natural shade so make sure to bring a paralos. There is a restaurant at the beach where you can have lunch if planing to stay the whole day. There is a bus connection from Korcula bus station.

It has everything you might want for a family day at the beach, shallow waters for children to be free and play in the sand, a beach volleyball court and a bar with drinks and snacks. There is a bus connection from Korcula bus station.

 

There are few bays on the southern part of Korcula island overlooking the island of Lastovo.

PUPNATSKA LUKA

Locals say that the most popular beach of all is Pupnatska Luka. It is a beautiful bay with clear water, perfect for swimming and sunbathing.

There is a restaurant and coffee bar near the bay but you can find good food in Pupnat village nearby. The bay is 15 km from Korcula Town. You can reach Pupnatska Luka by car, scooter or a taxi. The bus will only take you to Pupnat village.

BACVA

Bacva is a very small but 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 hidden 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, locally called Bjankura, make the colors of the bay so unique.
