Top 5 Things To Do in Lumbarda
Go wine tasting

You can enjoy a wine tasting experience at a number of family-run wineries and of course purchase a bottle or two to enjoy at home.

Relax on the sandy beaches
With the only sandy beaches on the island of Korcula, spend a few hours lounging at the bays of Przina or Bilin Zil. The shallow water here provides a safe and fun environment for children to play and plenty of sand for castle building! There is a small hut selling beach gear such as inflatable lilos, rubber rings and bucket & spades in the village.
Take a cycle ride
Due to its relatively flat terrain, Lumbarda is a great place to stretch your legs. Cycle amongst the fields carpeted with vineyards or walk through the luscious forest of pine trees to the furthest point east on the island, Raznjicć, for fantastic views out to sea and of the island of Mljet. You can hire bikes at an agency in the centre of Lumbarda or it is an easy cycle ride from Korcula, where numerous agencies hire bikes. Our self guided cycling tour from Korcula to Lumbarda will help lead your way.
Sip on a cocktail by the sea
