Korčula island guide

Among many Croatian islands it is surely worth visiting the central Dalmatian island of Korčula, which can be reached by a ferry from Split to Vela Luka or from Orebić to the town of Korčula. The island of Korčula comprises a beautiful lush maquis, conifers, Mediterranean flowers, a series of small islands and a bay. Korčula locals practise stone-masonry, fishing and shipbuilding, as well as the cultivation of oranges, olives, almonds and the processing of vineyards.

        Scams on Korčula island

        During your stay on Korčula island, you do not have to be afraid of frauds and theft, because Croatia is a safe country, and you will be safe in it. You will rarely see a thief or a criminal running from the police in the street because they are almost no such occurrences. Also, as far as the retailers in Croatia, people are very friendly, sometimes they are even willing to negotiate the price, but they will definitely not try to trick you.

        The only thing you should be careful about is when you are driving with a taxi make sure that the taxi driver turns on the taximeter, because they are obliged to do that but sometimes they “forget” and charge you more then they should.
