To reach Korcula town on the Korcula Island from Split you have two possibilities:
a) Take the ferry to Vela Luka (Korcula) at 10.15 or 17.30 and you arrive 2,5 hours later to the town Vela Luka. From there you have one more hour of drive to reach Lumbarda or Korcula town (45 km). The ferry drive takes about 2, hours and costs 10 € for the passengers and 90 € for the car.
b) If you arrive without the car, you can board the passengers-only Catamaran, that departs from Split and arrives either to Vela Luka or Korcula town directly. Catamaran departs from Split to Vela Luka at 15.00 and from Split to Korcula at 17.00. The drive takes around 2,5 hours and costs ca. 10 €. From Korcula town you need another 10 minutes to reach Lumbarda with local bus or taxi ( 6 km only).
As for the car ferry, it is recommendable to be there 1 hour before departure. Ferry departs 2 times each day, at 10.15 and at 17.30 in high season (1.6. - 30.9. each year).
If you arrive sooner, park your car in the line for the Ferry to Korcula (you are going to see signs guiding you to the right peer), and then leave the car there (you don't need to pay anything for the car there).
Buy a ticket to Korcula, and then take a stroll in the old town of Split (5 minutes on foot), and drink a coffee on a beautiful Split promenade by the sea with palms!
Half an hour before departure you will start to board the ferry. You park the car on the deck and go upstairs where the outdoor terrace or indoor cabin is. Inside is air-conditioned coffee bar, so you can enjoy the ride of 2,5 hours already on the ferry. There is plenty of space for the children to run around, play and relax.
You can also walk around the terraces and admire the Adriatic sea and start getting the brown color on the ferry already. If you are lucky, you might even see the dolphins.
You have access to your car the whole time so if you need anything from your car, you can go down and take it. It is a big ferry so you don't need to worry if there will be enough space for all cars, There is always enough space on this ferry from Split to Vela Luka.
When you arrive in Vela Luka, turn right from the port and follow the signs for Korcula. The rest is written in the guidelines, that we attach you with your travel Voucher.
NOTE: there is not possible to make a reservation for the ferry. You can only buy tickets on the day of your departure. The only ferry where reservations are possible is the long distance ferry from Rijeka to Dubrovnik, where you travel for several hours (from Rijeka to Dubrovnik 2 days and 1 night).
CAR on THE ISLAND: We do recommend to have a car on the island, since there is much to explore (several beautiful bays, hidden local restaurants, interesting towns, concerts), although you can visit all this also with a bus or excursion. You can rent a car once you arrive to the island Korcula or already at the Split airport.
We recommend to hire your car using this provider (excellent price-value ration, new cars, friendly service): http://www.airport-car-hire.net/
When I was 20 years old I visited the island and instantly fell in love with it. Turquoise blue bays, crystal clear water, charming old town with its cute stone streets, relaxing mindset of the local people and green pine forests instantly grew to my heart. When the opportunity came to buy this house, me and my partner instantly knew that this is where we would like to enjoy our passion for the Adriatic Sea and pass it forward to others.
I keep staying without breath every time I step to the balcony and see a spectrum of stunning blue colours. I just keep falling in love with this Island over and over again, that is also why we make sure that your stay at our apartments is accompanied with tips and tricks that only local people are aware of - like for example where to buy fresh fish, which secluded beach to visit, where to get the best steak on the Island and the how to rent a small boat and exploring the secret bays of Korcula.
My spouse and I believe that what goes around comes around, so we give a lot of love and attention to many details in this house in order for you to feel comfortable, welcomed and safe.
Tanja Gutenmorgen purchased this apartment in 2011
When I first visited the Island I heard that people from all over the Island are coming to bath on the two famous sandy beaches in Lumbarda, Przina and Bilin Zal. That was my first clue that Lumbarda must be a special place.
Not so fond of the sandy beaches I was happy to discover many little bays with pebble and the naturist part of the beaches too. Many little islands reachable in a few minutes with the boat give even more opportunities to have the beach all for yourself and enjoy the peace and quietness even in peak season, so this is another benefit of this place. The water everywhere is so beautifully clear!
On the other hand you can reach Korcula old town in just a few minutes with a car or bus, so it's great when you want to go and have a romantic walk around the city walls or drink a cocktail to celebrate something special.
It was not easy to find a new, renovated house on the Island, so we grabbed the opportunity to buy this one, since it was not only new and with a private pool, but it was also decorated by an artist and had many fabulous colourful pictures inside the house. So many people say that they feel wonderful at our place and that brings us extreme pleasure!
We love the local beaches in Lumbarda, whilst trips to Pupnatska Luka, Racisce and Prizba are fantastic. The main road through the island is very good and getting to the little bays can be a little exciting but the rewards are well worth it! If you hire a small boat for a day engine and you can drive round the local islands. Most evenings our guest returns to their lovely apartment and take another swim in the bay before getting ready for a night out.

…I could spend the whole summer there! The view from the apartment was magical. Everything was just like the photos you sent us. No Photoshop, no exaggeration just realistic description.
The reservation procedure was excellent, as well as the photo presentation (enough photos) and your website. The staff was very friendly and gave us all the necessary information before our departure.
I especially appreciated your signature your personal assistant which gives away the individual approach you have with each customer and creates a feeling of trust and that is something we all like. J
You certainly stand out from other turist agencies with your personal commitment and friendly nature. Let me also piint out that the co-workers on the island who I had the chance to meet are also very friendly and always willing to help. What you offer is also what the customer receives.
Really amazing little town! The house keeper was amazing, kind and helpful. They brought us fresh bread, olives, prosciutto and olive oil and balsamic! Rent a boat, visit wineries, can't beat Lumbarda
Nice island and beautiful sea. Good location near the sea. Practical apartment for kids also. friendly personnel.
Hair dryer would be good, though since the property doesn't list it under facilities, I had brought my own. Would be useful to have bus time tables to Korcula and back in the apartments, but apart from that it was just perfect and I think you guys, were amazing hosts.
The apartment is close but not too close to the center of Lumbarda. The temperature and the weather were perfect; the sun was shining all the time. Glasses for wine and electric toaster would have been great, but apart from these it was just perfect. The upper sundeck is beautiful and the view to the sea is amazing.
The modern bright decor Very well equipped with everything you needed in a small space - water filter jug and coffee percolating were well appreciated. Great views from balcony over Lumbarda harbour. 10 min walk from Lumbarda centre. Really useful to be able to borrow the department's bikes for free whenever we wanted. Maria the owner was so sweet and kind - when we left my son's cuddly toy behind, she drove into Korcula town the next day to return it to him - she'd remembered where we'd said we were going on to from her. The pull out sofa beds for the kids in the kitchen diner area were actually very comfy and we still had plenty of space in the 1 bedroom for all 4 cases. Pretty garden area with lots of herbs + ripening tomatoes we could help ourselves to. Lovely chill out seating area on a newly built top deck. Pool was not much more than a splash pool but OK to cool off in. Balcony table a bit of a squeeze for 4 people to eat at. But both minor things as overall we were impressed and had a very comfortable stay
“Situé en face de la baie de Lumbarda, la vue de la terrasse est magnifique. L'appartement est récent et spacieux, bien décoré et confortable. L'accueil de la propriétaire est chaleureux: fruits, boisson, fromage et jambon sont généreusement offert. La piscine et le coin détente est très appréciable. Excellente adresse.”
When thinking of spending your holidays in Croatia, you should plan to see its most beautiful parts.
Choosing Islands as a starting point, and in particular Korcula Island, is the best idea for getting to know the most beautiful “must see” points at the Adriatic sea.
Korcula island is known for its green pine forests, turquoise green – blue sea, beautiful Korcula old town, where you can literally fall in love with all the cute details of Venetian architecture…
…have a Caipirinha cocktail at the top of a tower, enjoy the romantic sunset from the top of the city walls and eat delicious organic Mediterranean food prepared by warm-hearted locals.
The Mediterranean climate, crystal clear sea, waking up with the sunrise at your balcony and breathtaking sea views on the whole Korcula Bay from the apartment will make you fall in love!
Here in the Sunshine apartments in Lumbarda you can experience peaceful and relaxing family holiday.
If you are a relaxed traveller looking for a quiet getaway or ways to create some new exciting memories, you are going to love the Island, Lumbarda with its sandy beaches, boat trips to secluded pebble beaches, wind-surfing and sailing courses and romantic walks in the evening in the Korcula old town.
Most people rent a little fisherman's boat and explore the 22 islets around Lumbarda, where you can have the whole beach just for yourself and enjoy the intimacy, peacefulness and sunbathing.
P.S. The title “The most beautiful beach of Croatia” was given to the Proizd Island in the year 2007 - just a 30 minutes boat trip from Korcula. You MUST to see its turquoise crystal clear waters and breathtaking pebble beaches!
