Hvar is blessed with some equally spectacular neighbours, and a visit to the island of Korcula to the south is an introduction to one of Europe’s best-kept secrets, and produces a day of fabulous memories, from the immaculate tiny old town sometimes referred to as a ‘mini-Dubrovnik’, to great beaches, a lush green interior and some of the best white wines in the entire country. And we haven’t yet mentioned that this is the birthplace of Marco Polo. With such beauty all around one has to wonder why he felt the need to travel at all!
Your speedboat tour takes you past the gorgeous southern shore of Hvar to Korcula Town, with an optional swimming stop on the way. As this is a private tour, you control the itinerary. Upon arrival in the superbly preserved old town, your guide will conduct a one-hour walking tour of the town with its centuries of rich history, which also includes a visit to the birthplace of Marco Polo.
After this, you will have some free time to explore, as well as some great lunch recommendations in local restaurants. For the more adventurous, there are additional options, including an optional short cruise to the nearby Mljet National Park on the island of the same name. Or why not explore the fabled wines of Korcula. Posip is the most widely available variety, but it is Grk which is not only the most intriguing but which also gets most of the accolades. A white variety which only grows on the sandy soil of the village of Lumbarda, it is in such high demand and limited supply that sales after tasting are limited to just two bottles per person!
After a hard day touring Korcula, one final optional stop before arriving back to Hvar Town – a swim in a deserted lagoon on Hvar’s southern shores – the perfect way to end a memorable day.
