Docking

Korcula Town
The usual berths here are in the ACI marina, which lies in a small cove, east of the town. It is protected by a breakwater on the northern side. This is often full and it is worth reserving a berth in advance.

When the town marina is full, yachts are directed to the outside of the breakwater. This is exposed and it may be worth moving elsewhere.

An alternative is the quay near the Harbour Master's office, or on the west side of the town. Yachts that anchor in the bay near the town will be charged for anchoring. See latest fees reported under comments at bottom of page.

Other Ports/Anchorages on Korcula Island
There are several more locations for mooring and anchoring around this attractive island:

  • Anchor by the Missionary (42 57.1N 17 09.7E). There is a charge to anchor here. Dinghy about a mile to Korcula town.

  • Vela Luka - on the northern end; a busy harbour with all facilities.
  • Brna - in the middle of the south coast; a relaxing, quiet harbour with some facilities.
  • Zavalatica - about 5nm E of Brna; a small harbour rapidly becoming a tourist centre.

We anchored at the Missionary and this is now being charged by Korcula port authority for overnight stays. This was at 150kuna for a monohull, more for a catamaran. Free anchorage still at U. Banja also near Korcula Town which is where we relocated!

the strait just north of Korcula on a windy day provides a glorious show of windsurfers and parasailors and other hotdoggers with sails, hydro devices - anything that will whisk them over the water. As you sail the strait they will zip by you, often waving to you, and will ham it up even more if they see you filming them. They are a joy to watch and provide fantastic entertainment!
