From Makarska to Korcula (town)
approx. 35 nm,
At least 2 hours drive,
85 lit diesel
The island of Korcula is often referred to as “the green island”.
The city of Korcula itself and the port of Vela Luka, as well as the famous sandy beach of Lumbarda are well known.
Korcula found its way into world history as the birthplace of Marco Polo. Therefore there are many sights to admire in the old town of Korcula. The Roman architectural style contributes much to the typical atmosphere of this gem.
At the south-western tip of the island you will find the seaside resort of Lumbarda and then continue west to Vela Luka.
The most striking landmark are the city walls,up to 25 m high and 2 km long. Inside you get through one of the 5 gates to the different forts or fortresses.
Further sights are the "Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary", the"Rector's Palace" and the "St. LawrenceFortress", better known as the "Gibraltar of Dubrovnik".
For night owls we recommend the "Cave BarMore", which is located in a real cave. Also worth mentioning are the "Club Lazarett" and the "Revelin Culture Club". The latter is located within the Revelin fortress and is considered an absolute "must see"!
From Makarska to Vis
approx. 43 nm,
At least 2 h + 30 min drive,

The island Vis with the city Vis of the same name is extremely popular with the Italians.
The city was founded by the Hellenes around400 BC as amilitary base for Greek
settlement. Until the time of Tito it served the military as a base and was therefore closed for tourism. This is why the island has retained much of its original charm.
Viticulture has always been the main activity of the Vis people besides fishing, as the fishing grounds around Vis are among the most productive in the middle Adriatic.
Since the island is located in front of the others, the temperatures here are usually somewhat higher than on the mainland.
