Visit best beaches and enjoy the nature of the island Korcula
The best beaches in this green and rocky island hide in the south and lay bare the secret of its waters: Dalmatian stone background reflects sunlight so hard that sea becomes miraculously atoll-like with emerald and turquoise shades. Since island Korcula is rather rocky island, especially the south coast, there are not as many beaches as in some other regions of Dalmatia. There is a reasonable number of very beautiful beaches, and we think that this is better option, since large number of beaches attracts too many mass-tourists, which does not allow quality tourism to develop. Long streams of beaches are also monotonous from the view point of marine life, since fish and other sea life prefers rocky shores to develop. The are on the island of Korcula with best beaches is definitely the area of Lumbarda, where there are several pebble and sandy beaches. On the south side of the island one can find beautiful coves with pebble beaches, and on the north side of the island there are several sandy beaches. The are around Vela Luka on the western tip of the Korcula island is also abundant with nice beaches.
