Lumbarda


One of the most beautiful villages on the island of Korcula is Lumbarda, a small village situated near the top Eastern edge of the island just 4 km away from the Korcula’s Old Town.

The village benefits of the location on the north, as well as the south side of the island.

It means that from Lumbarda you can easily access both coastlines. They are just there, on the easy walking distance from any part of the village. That is particularly handy for windy periods so let’s say if you try to avoid windy beach all you have to do is just to walk on the other side of the village. And vice – versa if you are into some wind activity, like sailing, kitesurfing or windsurfing, you can basically find windy location almost any time you wish.

Lumbarda also overviews local archipelago [photo below] which adds to the dynamic of the views from almost any part of the village.
