Korcula – Sailing & Swim Stops

281239_10100334817091241_1438155_nThe island of Korcula is one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic Sea, with abundant vineyards and olive groves. Its southern coast is formed by small beaches and quiet coves. The town is the birthplace of Marco Polo, and appears as a typical medieval town with towers and red-roofed houses. In the morning and afternoons the boat would frequently anchor so we could enjoy a swimming stop. I feel like I am a pro when it comes to the art of boat jumping.

Croatian pizza can fairly and justly rival Italian pizza, in my opinion. For dinner I’d have a huge and delectable pizza. I loved the vegetarian pizzas – they seemed to have even more flavour. After dinner we would explore the nightlife. There was one bar that was interesting in particular – situated on top of a castle. There were holes up there that would be easy to fall into. A possible plummet to death . . . would not be legal in Canada. To reach the bar in the first place you also need to climb up and down an extremely steep and wobbly ladder on a 90 degree angle. Slightly nerve racking. The views up there made it completely worth the danger! Korcula in the night was absolutely beautiful.

  1. That pizza looks absolutely divine! Now I’m dying for some myself. I’m also dying to be swimming around Croatia. It looks absolutely marvelous.

  2. I’m always entertained by the things that are acceptable in parts of Europe that would be illegal in Canada/America/any sensible country – like my climbing up a ruin of a tower with only a lantern to light the way! Amazing pics again – PS you’re so brave with your bikini shots! Hats off to you!

  3. I agree about Croatian pizza. One of the best pizzas I had during my month in Europe a couple of years ago was in Dubrovnik.

  4. We spent a week in Korcula last September and adored it! The water was sooo beautiful, and the town so peaceful. Did you join any of the nude sunbathers while you were there? We took a boat from Korcula to Badija Island and it’s the only place in the world I’ve felt comfortable to do that. Hidden nooks and crannies all over the island and almost total privacy. And what an amazing feeling to dive into that amazing water that way!! So liberating!! Can’t wait to go back there and do it again!! :)

  5. Thanks for the “Like”. I am glad it made me discover your blog. Wow! You have been to so many places :-)
    I love travel blogs, and yours are exciting.
    I enjoy traveling too and one of my dreams are to visit Croatia one day.

  6. In 2 trips to Croatia I didn’t make it to Korcula. So I am jealous.

    If you ever go back, make sure to visit the little village of Trogir, near Split. As beautiful as Dubrovnik, but smaller and more peaceful.

What do you think? I'd love to hear from you!
