Vela Luka info (Korčula island)
In the western part of Korčula, around a deeply cut bay stretches Vela Luka, by population the largest settlement on Korčula. The coastline is rugged with an abundance of bays, islets, karst plateaus and steep cliffs. Ever since the ancient times, the locals engaged in agronomy, fishing and cultivation of Mediterranean cultures, and recently tourism. Vela Luka has become a significant tourist destination due to its natural resources, cultural heritage and cultural and entertainment events. In the winter a carnival is held in Vela Luka, and in the summer, as part of the “Luško lito”, a series of events attended by numerous tourists. Here you can find comfortable accommodation and taste authentic dishes and drinks. Vela Luka is well connected to neighbouring islands and coastal cities of Dalmatia by maritime lines.
