About Vela Luka

A fishing harbour and ferry port at the end of deep bay; villas here are out of the main town with sea views and beaches close by.

Vela Luka means "Big Harbour" in Croatian. It is the largest town on the island of Korcula and the second largest town in the Croatian islands, a home to 4100 people. It is situated on the west side of Korcula island, at the end of a 9.2 km long and sheltered bay which is full of beaches and coves with classy holiday villas, apartments and hotels. The town itself is made up of lovely Mediterranean style stone town houses, villas and cottages, interspersed with lively squares full of cafes, bars and restaurants. If you stay in town, you are immersed in the life of narrow cobbled streets, charming shops, fish markets and always just a few steps away from the sea. Further afield from the town, in the numerous aquamarine bays, there are sumptuous villas with pools, lovely beaches and tranquillity.
