Top 10 Korčula beaches

The island of Korcula has countless of little bays, coves and surrounding islets with all kinds of their own beaches and bathing spots, sometimes very secluded and hard to reach. This time we will leave those to you more adventurous and explorer types. Korcula also has numerous and more or less famous ones, but surely more convenient for you to reach them. While making this selection we took into consideration some of the important factors in beach rating and evaluation (for example, all top 10 beaches have excellent sea bathing water quality), but to be completely honest with you dear visitor - in the end was all about which one is more beautiful. So this is what we like, hope you will enjoy it too!
