Przina Beach, Lumbarda, Korcula
Przina Beach, Lumbarda


 

For a beach holiday on Korcula Island, Lumbarda is the place to go. This little village just six km east of Korcula town is on a tranquil bay with two sandy beaches just outside town. The largest sandy beach is Przina, 1 km southeast of the village. Nearby is pretty Bilin Zal. Both beaches are calm and shallow--great for kids!

Lumbarda Town Beach

Lumbarda is the grape-growing centre of Korcula largely because of the reddish soil that is perfectly adapted to wine production. Inland, are acres of vineyards that produce Grk, the excellent local white wine.

History of Lumbarda

This fertile pocket of land has been settled for ages. Ancient Greek artifacts have been found in and around Lumbarda  and the region is still being excavated.

Researchers have also found evidence that the Illyrian tribes had also colonised the region. The low-key allure of Lumbarda attracted prosperous shipbuilders as early as the 16th century who built summer houses called "kastels" around the village. In addition to a long tradition of welcoming visitors, the locals are committed to cultivating grapes, olives and figs.

Accommodation in Lumbarda

In keeping with its laid-back atmosphere, accommodation in Lumbarda is simple and authentic. For a warm, homey experience, I highly recommend Pansion Guest House Bebic. The Bebic family is committed to sharing the Korcula lifestyle with their guests. The homecooked meals are complemented by an array of homemade products from Bebic wine to Bebic travarica. Their committment to authenticity is expressed in meals of traditional Korculan favourites.

But you can do more than just eat! Just go down a few stairs and you're right at the crystal clean sea. Or, let Bebic organize a boatride for you that will take you through the archipelago of lush islands just off the Korculan coast. If Korculan culture tempts you, enjoy one of Bebic's Musical Evenings where local groups serenade you with Dalmatian tunes. (see my full review here)

Otherwise, there are two three-star hotels in Lumbarda.
