Omis to Korcula – A Croatian coastal roadtrip

Scroll down to content

The coastal road from the old pirate stronghold of Omis south to the island Korcula is a fantasy summer roadtrip – with a couple of ferries on the way.

The first 80 kilometres is flanked by mountainous rock faces and vineyards on the left, and runs above small beaches on the right, most only evident from towel wrapped beachgoers taking their chances crossing the road. The mainland Dalmatian route headed into the hills then past a series of lakes before a sharp turn took us down to the port of Ploce.

An hour-long car ferry to the Peljesac peninsula town of Trpanj saved us a couple of border crossings in and out of Bosnia if we’d driven the whole way to Orebic for the second ferry ride. The first ferry trip gave a fantastic view of the mountains and coastline we’d just driven. A 14 km road from Trpanj then took us over the peninsula mountain range to Orebic and a 15 minute ferry trip to Korcula. Small islands dot the path between the peninsula and Korcula.

Once on Korcula, apparently the birthplace of Marco Polo, we drove another 40 minutes across the island for our three-day stay in the quiet bay of Brna. The bay is a deep water haven for fishing boats and once had a pier for exporting wine.

Here are some photos from the trip in chronological order.
