After leaving Hvar island, we spent a few days on Korcula island. Korcula island is the second most populated of the Adriatic islands. It is about 45 kms long and on average only 7 kms wide.
The main ferry from Hvar took us into the harbor in the town of Korcula. After a quick stint at the hospital for an allergic reaction, we were on our way traveling down the island. With the island being so narrow, it was easy to navigate roads less traveled along the coast – with breathtaking views.
We ended up ‘setting up shop’ in Prizba for a few nights and boy did we luck out. The couple whose apartment we rented were lovely people (Armando and Katica) and we immediately felt at home. They even shared their swimming hole with us. I highly recommend staying with them if you get a chance. Learn more about their accommodations.
From Prizba, we did a day ride out to the other side of the island and this time of year it was very quiet (some of the communities such as Babina seemed like ghost towns). We enjoyed the riding and plenty of sea views.
We loved the island of Korcula and considered spending our remaining few days there, however, we knew the small island of Lastovo would be a hidden gem too, so we headed towards the port in Vela Luka to catch our ferry…stopping along the way to do some bike karma for a Norwegian couple with a flat tire.
