The beautiful Korcula island and Peljesac peninsula are among the most visited parts of Dubrovnik region and make a great day trip choice.
Korcula Old Town with its narrow cobbled streets and architecture is worth visiting. While, green Peljesac peninsula is dotted with little fisherman villages, beautiful beaches and is famous for wineries that produce quality wines.
Getting to Korcula is easy during the summer, thanks to regular catamaran service. The boat ride takes only 2 hours and you can choose from several departures daily.
To reach Peljesac on your own and explore little villages and hidden beaches, you'll have to rent a car (it's 1-1.5 hour driver from Dubrovnik).
For those who want to skip all hassle, taking an organised tour is a great choice.
