Welcome to Dubrovnik Airport. How else would you expect to start our trip to Korcula rather than having a couple of useful pieces of information? Dubrovnik airport to Korcula transfer usually lasts approximately 3h (total, including ferry ride), while driving to Orebic is around 2h (130 km). During the peak season from June to September or on weekends, small waits are possible. You still have time to decide whether you want to end your trip with us in Orebic- the main hub to Korcula and continue by boat or continue to Korcula by car ferry with us.
Booking a transfer to Orebic is a more affordable option and great if your final destination is inside the town of Korcula. To better explain, Korcula can be only reached by the sea at Orebic by taking passengers or car ferry. Orebic got its name from the Orebic naval family, which at the end of the fifteenth century established the core of the village and built a citadel.
Before heading to Korcula Island, we will stop in Ston to admire the stonewalls -the longest fortification in Europe (5.5 km), visit the Ston salt pans, and taste its locally farmed oysters in Mali Ston. Both Mali and Veliki Ston are full of Gothic and Renaissance buildings from the time of the Republic and are exceptionally interesting to visitors. In the channel of Mali Ston, in Bistrina, oyster shells are being cultivated, which is a rare experience to see for travelers. There is also a fine little island called “The Isle of Life”. Not far from Ston, there is a wonderful bay, Prapratno, with ancient olive groves.
This Peljesac peninsula is famous for its wines. Among our favorite sort is the simple red wine well known as Plavac Mali. Protected origin and best brands wines are labeled as “Dingac” and “Postup”. A long time ago, it had been said that the mother of wine is earth, a sort is a father, and the weather conditions are its destiny. Here, wine production is a way of life. We can suggest you some wine tasting starting from Ston and Milos winery and then Bartulovic winery and tavern. Finally, if you decide to stay a little bit in Orebic – Korta Katarina would be our suggestion. As you see. you have plenty of options to enjoy your stay enchanted by the seaside, olives, exquisite food menu, and inspiring wine tastes.
