The town of Korcula, Korkulathe historical centre of the island, has a very nice location in the Peljesac Channel. It is also known for its outstanding cultural and historical heritage and a long tradition in seafaring, shipbuilding and stone-masonry. It is the birthplace of the adventurer and traveller Marco Polo. Today Korcula is an important tourist centre. Tourism has a years-long tradition on the island. The first modern hotel, in Korcula, was opened in 1912, in a building erected in 1871. Hotel guests have been enjoying the sunset at the hotel terrace for decades, which is a unique experience in the early summer. Visitor opportunities of the island of Korcula include various types of accommodation - hotels, apartments, campsites, marina; sports and recreational facilities, especially interesting are water sports; organized excursions and a rich cultural life and entertainment programs. However best way to visit the islands is one of our luxury crewed motorboat charter, or a large luxury gullet and enjoy it by the sea. Cultural events of "Moreska" and "Kumpanija" have become world-famous. Gastronomic offer includes famous fish specialities and exquisite, top-class local wines (Posip, Rukatac, Grk, Plavac), due to which Korcula is also called "the island of wines". The local cuisine is also famous for traditional cakes and sweets, such as "cukarini", "krostule" and "prikle". Korcula has numerous tennis courts. Windsurfing and yachting equipment may be rented. Interesting excursions and diving expeditions led by professional divers.

KorkulaThe most important cultural event is the traditional chivalrous game called "Moreska". It has been performed in Korcula since the 15th century and is of Spanish origin. It is a battle between the army of the white king and the army of the black king, who fight for the princess abducted by the black king. After a fierce fight with swords, in seven battle figures and a dramatic dialogue, the White King defeats the black King and sets the princess free. The fight is accompanied by a battle march performed by a brass band. Moreska is performed every year on the 29th of July, together with the celebration of St. Todor, but also on several occasions during the tourist season. We strongly recommend to visit Korlula is a sailing charter around itís coast. Another traditional feast in Korcula is the carnival, which starts on the Epiphany, and the Holy Week, with the procession of guilds - especially impressive is the procession on Good Friday. Many cultural and sports events take place during the summer months: music festivals, theatre and folk music performances, sports contests, yachting regattas, etc. But yacht chartering is not just a glamorous holiday option: it can also be the ideal business incentive, or the venue for corporate events. An onboard party for a special event or a trip with your clients as guests can be just what is needed to create the setting for a business meeting requiring total discretion or a memorable incentive for your executives. Team building and bonding exercises are ideal held during a luxury motor yacht among the Croatia islands.
