More about Korcula

Also known as Marco Polo’s hometown, Korčula will take your breath away. It is rich in vineyards and olive groves and therefore at the dinner, you will be served with one of the best white Croatian wines (Pošip or Grk) and extra virgin olive oil.

Moor your boat in marina Korčula and take a walk around the walls of an old town, especially by night when all the lights make a town one of the most romantic places in Croatia.

Marina ACI Korcula

Heading to Korčula town in high season might be a bit difficult if you want to moore your yacht in the marina. Keep in mind that marina has only 159 berths (half of them taken annually) and most of those are reserved, sometimes already two days in front. We suggest to talk about Korcula with your skipper and book a spot on your arrival day – Saturday.

All free spots in the marina are gone? Drop the anchor in the bay next to and call a water taxi to take you to the old town. Walk around this tiny town and enjoy a dinner with a bottle of Pošip wine in of the seafood restaurants.
