Restaurant Planjak

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A Kebab and a Beer at the Planjak"

Quote:
The Planjak is situated in the very cente of the old town of Korcula and is extremely popular with locals and tourists.The best times to visit are very early morning before the sun rises high in the sky and gets too hot and before the Jadrolinja ferry docks, dropping off day trippers from Dubrovnik.The restaurant has a wonderfully shaded terrace with a woven roof of rattan. From the roof hang lanterns to illuminate the restaurant in the evening. Flower boxes have been built into the stone wall and are filled to the brim with trailing pink, white and red geraniums and variagated ivy plants. The odd Yucca plant graces the terrace also, giving the area a mediterranean ambience....Read More

The Jadrolinja Coming into Korcula Photo, Korcula, Croatia
Quote:
The island of Korcula - an emerald jewel set below mountains of granite and skies of azure blue, but how do you transport yourself around this peninsula of beauty? By Jadrolinja ferries, of course. This whiter than white fleet of steel ships has been used by visitors since 1947. Jadrolinja is a Croatian shipping company that operates mainly car ferries and some catamarans on domestic routes to the Croatian Islands as well as certain routes to Italy. Having used the ferries a few times I always find the experience one that I never forget. The first time I used the service was from Korcula to Stari Grad which takes around 3 hours. This particular day was a scorcher and we were to...Read More

Campsite Kalac

Hotel | "A Few Days Stop Over in Croatia"

Camp Kalac, Korcula, CroatiaCamp Kalac is situated on the beautiful island of Korcula which is just off the Peljesac peninusala - approximately 140 kilometres from Dubrovnik which takes about 3 hours due to the winding coastal road. I have been to Korcula several times but only camped on this site once. We drove from Cumbria to Korcula in a small Bambi camper van. It was exciting to say the least. The engine nearly blew up, radiator overheated and the breaks jammed going down the steepest of hills in Rovinj.So as you can imagine I was very pleased when we arrived in one piece.The camp site itself is large, 10 000m2. It has about 250 pitches, all with their own elect...Read More

Hotel Liburna

Hotel | "Baked Alaska at the Hotel Liburna"

Quote:
Liburna Hotel is situated in a secluded location with fantastic views of Korcula and Orebic, with the mountain of St. Ilijah looming, dark and moody, in the background. It takes 10 mins to walk into the town passing the marina, with some quite flashy boats usually from Italy and the South of France and various small bars and ice cream parlours.With stunning views all around you can spend hours sat watching the small boats darting around. It is always a hive of activity. In front of the hotel is a small rocky beach which leads into the sea so it is a perfect location for relaxing and sunbathing if that is all you want to do on your holiday. The rocks are very sharp and it is best to wear sp...Read More

I first went to Korcula about 4 years ago with my husband. My son had been left home a year, hitchhiking around the world and we hadn't seen him for 12 months. We wanted to meet up somewhere and he suggested Montenegro. I tried to find a cheap package to Montenegro but they were far too expensive so I chose Korcula instead.We booked a week at the Park Hotel with flight's included. This was with Monarch airlines. The flight was about 3 hours or a bit more and it was very noisy.We were both a bit trepidatious about this trip as we didn't really know a lot about the area. Wow! When we arrived at Dubrovnik airport and stepped off the plane we were both hooked. That backdrop of mountains with a...Read More
