Where to stay in Korcula Town

We receive a lot of questions about where the best place to stay in Korcula Town and the surrounding area is. A lot of people visiting the island choose to stay here due to its proximity to transport connections and a wide choice of amenities and accommodation.

Korcula Town and the surrounding area is fairly compact. We consider it to stretch from the Bay of Medvinjak to Luka Bay, with Korcula Old Town roughly in the middle. From either outskirt, it’s not much more than a 20-minute walk to the centre along the coastline.

You can see the approximate layout of each area on this map.

Here’s our quick overview of some of the best spots to stay during your holiday. Working from West to East from Medvinjak to Luka…
