Reviewed By janeandjohn11 - Duns, United Kingdom

Pebble beach, clear water. Good beach bar. Sun beds and parasols available. Lovely for swimming and snorkelling, take swimming shoes as Korcula island has sea urchins!

St. Mark's Cathedral

Reviewed By Richard F - Greenville, South Carolina

The Cathedral is quaint, small, but interesting. They post signs that there is no pictures, but the day we were there everyone was taking pictures and no said anything. After your visit to the Cathedral next door is the entrance to the bell tower which is amazing and very interesting. You have to pay and entrance fee to both neither one is to much. When you start up the steps to the tower you'll see either a red or green light which means start up or wait till the people coming down get out of your way. There are a lot of steps and it never felt unsafe, but it's not for everyone. The views from up top are spectacular to say the least. You see in all directions and for miles. On a busy day in the harbor with boats going everywhere it's exciting to view and take pictures of. I'm not sure at what age it would be OK to take kids up, but think carefully before you take them up.

Korcula Town Museum

Reviewed By Ian R - London, United Kingdom

Popped in here whilst meandering through the streets of Korcula. It's directly opposite the church in the center of town and cost 20HRK to enter. There are plenty of different exhibits set across four floors with descriptions in Croatian and English, and is somewhere worth visiting whilst you're in town.

Revelin Tower

Reviewed By BigHugh51 - Adelaide, Australia

Korcula Town was full of tourists on the day of our visit with a cruise ship moored in the harbour. Consequently, wherever you went around the town, there were people doing the things which tourists do.
One such spot was the Revelin Tower which had many people climbing to the top to take in the views while others were busy being photographed on or next to the tower.
The views from the tower across the Old City and the sea are quite spectacular. The tower itself with its round architecture topped with battlements is picturesque and a good subject for keen photographers.
Well worth a visit!

Sveti Mihovil

Reviewed By MBB1952 - Surfers Paradise, Australia

St. Michaels Church was first documented in the 15th century, it is small but very interesting, visited a while back. The high alter dates back to the 18th century, it represents the Virgin of Consolation painted by Domenico Maggiotto. The church faces the Town Hall. I just love visiting these old town church's.

Atelier Abel

Reviewed By Aletiv - Tel Aviv, Israel

Touring Korchula and other towns in Croatia we visited many Galleries hoping to get something special for our house. Most of the artists we came across use a realistic style to portray Croatian Beaches and villages.
Abel portrays Croatian land and sea- scape in a "cubist" -like style which appealed to us immediately.
Our final choice however was not a landscape/seascape scene but a still-life painting.
Attached is a photo of the painting hanging proudly in our house.
The light does not show the picture for its real beauty.

Korcula Town Walls

Reviewed By SuzyQu15 - Brooklyn, New York

Climb the staircase with steep steps to enter old town Korcula, within the walls. This medieval town is beautiful to walk through, with its gorgeous water views at every turn. Walk past, or go into, a house that may or may not be the birthplace of Marco Polo (apparently this is not clear cut!). Many restaurants, shops and delicious gelato to be had!
