Lumbarda Korcula

Lumbarda on the island of Korcula is the location of one of Croatia’s best island beaches. Originally the site of a Greek colony, various artefacts dating form that time have been found in the vicinity. The most notable of these is the Lumbarda psephisma, a written record of the names of the colonists in the area and a register of their land.

The original is now in a museum in Zagreb. Uvala Prvi Zal is the larger of the two bays near the village of Lumbarda and has a beach at its head. Prizna Bay is a fantastic, two hundred metre stretch of sand served by a couple of small cafes while nearby Bilin Zal is a rockier stretch of coastline with sandy interludes that enjoys dramatic views over the coastal mountains.

The wreck of a boathouse that sits on the shore is the Bilin Zal konoba (casual restaurant) which is said to serve a mean hobotnica na buzara (octopus in red wine sauce). There is another good beach at Uvala Tatinja.
