Korcula is one of my favourite Dalmatian Islands in Croatia. There’s a charming old town and beautiful areas all over the island. Whether you want to spend your time relaxing or exploring, perhaps a little of both, it’s always nice to come home to somewhere special. So where to stay in Korcula? Here are our recommendations and Korcula Accommodation Guide…

Where To Stay In Korcula?
So where to stay in Korcula? The main areas to choose between include Korcula Town, Lumbarda and Vela Luka. There are also smaller villages like Zrnovo, Prizba, Zavalatica and many more, but these can be isolating if you don’t have a car and fairly quiet.
My pick for best area to stay on Korcula Island for first time visitors would be Korcula Town, in particular, Korcula Old Town. This is where you will find most restaurants and the beautiful streets and architecture of the Old Town. There are a lot of things to do in Korcula Old Town. Staying just outside of the Old Town is also a good option, particularly if you want a quieter stay. See our accommodation guide below for where to stay in Korcula Town.
Lumbarda would be my next pick, as it has some restaurants, beaches and some beautiful surrounding areas. It will be quieter and with less choice of restaurants then Korcula Old Town, but perfect if you want to be close to Korcula Town but in a quieter area. I think Lumbarda is a great option for where to stay in Korcula for families.
As for Vela Luka, I think this may be a good option if you have a car and have been to Korcula before. It’s about 50 minutes drive from Korcula Town. If you haven’t been to Korcula before, I think there’s too much to see in Korcula Town and the surrounding areas to stay in Vela Luka. Even for a return visit, I might still lean towards areas closer to Korcula Town or Korcula Town itself.
I would only stay in the smaller towns if I had a car and really wanted to stay in a smaller quiet village. You will be limited with what you can do at night and what you can walk too. You may also be limited with public transport.
