Exploring Vela Luka on Korcula Island [Through My Lens Nr. 407]

During my recent visit to Korcula island, I finally found some time to explore the island a bit further. This time I wanted to explore Vela Luka, the second biggest town of the island. The harbor town is situated in a long, narrow bay, where the two mountains Spilinski rat and Humic protect the harbor town from cold winds and harsh climates. I had an amazing dinner at Konoba Stari Ribar. The picturesque harbor and the small old town forms the tourist hotspot of Vela Luka. Along the harbor and at the waterfront are many restaurants and cafes that invite you to linger. A beautiful attraction of Vela Luka is the Church of St. Joseph in the city center, which was built in 1848. The church can be visited from the inside, and a climb to the church tower is also worthwhile. Also fascinating is the nearby Art & Culture Center. It’s located in a renovated baroque building where important archaeological finds from the island of Korcula are exhibited.

Vela Luka is a fabulous starting point for excursions and tours for exploring the best things to do on Korcula Island.
Here are the most beautiful attractions that can be easily explored from the resort. Absolutely worth seeing is Korcula town, where a charming old town with many sights will delight you. It is located in the southeastern part of the island and can also be reached by public bus from Vela Luka. A very popular destination, also for bicycle tours, is the village of Smokvica, a picturesque wine village in the mountains of Korcula. The town of Blato, only a short distance from Vela Luka, is also worth a visit with its ethnographic museum and the lovely old town.
