Dubrovnik & Korcula

After spending a week in Montenegro we drove north towards Croatia. Past Dubrovnik towards Orebic on the Peljesac peninsula directly on the Dalmatian coast. Orebić is located directly across a strait from the town of Korčula, located on the island of the same name. Ferries service the two towns frequently. It is a beautiful and quite quiet part of the coast. Not many tourists come here and mass tourism is far away. The beaches are rocky and the water of stunning bluish-green colour. We stayed in a small local B&B by the sea and did some day trips to the local area. From Orebic, we took a ferry to Korcula, Croatia's second most inhabited island. We spent a day swimming, eating, and walking around the picturesque town of Korcula. And we saw a beautiful sunset on the ferry on our way back. Absolutely well worth it...

After a couple of days on the island, we drove back to Dubrovnik and enjoyed some days in this beautiful coastal city. Dubrovnik is known for its distinctive Old Town, encircled with massive stone walls completed in the 16th century. Buildings range from baroque churches to a Renaissance Palace and Gothic Palace which now a history museum. Paved with limestone, the pedestrianized Stradun is lined with shops and restaurants. Great beach life during the day, sightseeing from a cable car up the hill and a choice of excellent restaurants.
