Korcula Island is a top destination for travellers seeking to escape from it all and experience authentic Croatia. Just like the more popular Dalmatian island choices, Korčula has plenty to offer in terms of beautiful beaches, stunning scenery, and friendly hospitality. Situated in proximity to Brac, Hvar and Mljet islands, Korčula is the perfect place to stop over when you’re island hopping in Croatia.
The cuisine of the Adriatic coast was influenced by neighboring Italy and France slightly larger than the cuisine of central Croatia. In Korcula, you can easily order the usual Croatian meat courses as well as the popular seafood courses at any local restaurant. Life on the island is simple and modest, and those are the basis of Korčula’s cuisine – the Mediterranean diet is simple, but it is certainly rich in flavors and aromas. The most basic ingredient for the preparation of different meals is olive oil. Korčula has about thousands of agricultural farms that grow olives. The island’s olive oil has a protected designation of origin, as well as a protected geographical indication of the European Union.
