This sunshine drenched island is always a favourite stop on our Croatian yacht getaway, and we think that has a lot to do with its beautifully relaxed vibe and friendly locals.

The Old Town

Wandering through the charming streets of the island’s Old Town is always a wonderful experience as you’ll find lots of eateries, souvenir shops and artisanal boutiques tucked away. Oh, and don’t worry about getting lost, it’s impossible!

Learn More About Marco Polo

Peek into what could have been Marco Polo’s first home, wander around the accompanying shop with its shelves full of treasures and curiosities, before making your way over to the Marco Polo exhibition, which traces the adventurer’s travels through several multimedia exhibits.

Wine Tasting Tours

An island famous for its vineyards and award winning wine wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to see how the grapes are grown and to taste the final product.

Relax by the Shore

While you won’t find miles of white sandy beaches, there are plenty of pebbly beaches and rocky platforms on which you can sit back and relax, look out over the ocean and get lost in a great book.

Admire the Architecture

The star of the show is St Mark’s Cathedral, which is located in the centre of Korčula’s Old Town and took three centuries to construct. Restored to its full glory in 2013, the Cathedral and its famous bell tower are truly breath-taking.

Dine in Style on Your Yacht Getaway

Family-run Marco Polo restaurant is one of the most popular places to dine as the menu is full of dishes which truly make the most of the catch of the day. Renowned for their olive oil drenched grilled fish, you won’t regret stopping here for a delicious dinner.

Enjoy your Evening

In such a relaxed location you might be surprised to hear that the island truly comes alive at night, with everything from street performers to live music. Enjoy a sunset cocktail from a rooftop bar, just make sure to order an olive platter if they’re available – you won’t regret it!
