Found on the western side of Korcula, Vela Luka is the biggest of the towns on the island, and it offers plenty for tourists exploring the area. With secluded coves and an ideal anchorage, it is no surprise that it is such a popular choice for intrepid sailors. The island also has a rich and varied cultural past, and it remains a hub for all types of creativity found in the town and the surrounding areas.


In the height of summer, the creative side of Vela Luka reaches its peak with many open-air concerts and other forms of entertainment for both tourists and locals to enjoy. This includes a number of performances that reflect the town’s cultural past, giving visitors an unrivalled insight into Vela Luka’s history.


Furthermore, Vela Luka is considered the perfect spot from which to explore Croatian culture even further. Whether it is bathing in some of the more remote waters, taking a music cruise or indulging in an ever-popular ‘fish-picnic’, Vela Luka really is a gateway to Croatian culture at its best.
