Relaxation with extras
We were staying in Dubrovnik but had planned to have one overnight trip to Lumbarda via Korcula to explore the region. When we landed off the boat taxi in Korcula, we initially wondered why we had bothered, as it seemed like sleepy town, but once we had had a coffee and ice cream, and been picked up by Ksenija, our host, and whisked to our spotless apartment with wonderful views of the town and the bay, treated to local wine, bread and cheese, we quickly warmed to the place. We hired bikes and were able to explore the vicinity, with its sandy beaches, and excellent and reasonably priced restaurants. Next day we hired Kayaks for half the Dubrovnik price, and explored the adjacent islands, with cafes, Monastery and wild deer. We really enjoyed the break from amazing but expensive and crowded Dubrovnik, and would base ourselves here in future, and do the overnight trip to Dubrovnik instead! Korcula was really good also(like a mini Dubrovnik)..
Pros: The apartment was clean, well equipped and small, adequate for a family of 4, with amazing view and nice balcony. Well placed between beach & town.
Cons: As long as you like a walk its perfect.
Location: Beaches with cafes/ restaurant within 10 min walk one way, Town with restaurants, bay and hire facilities 10 min the other way. Wine cellars 25m away
