PUPNATSKA LUKA

"Pupnatska Luka" translated from Croatian means "The port of Pupnat". Pupnatska Luka is one of the most beautiful pebble beaches on the island of Korcula, surrounded by crystal clear sea. It is located on the south side of the island cca 17 km from the town of Korcula,it is reachable by a narrow and steep road so we advise our customers with scooters to be extra careful if they visit this beach..

There is a parking above the beach, a toilette,two small restaurants/beach bars where it is possible to have a refreshing drink and a meal in the shade, and the possibility of renting kayaks, lounge chairs and sunshades. The beach is surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation and overlooks the archipelago of Lastovo.

 

The rest of the Island has lots of beautiful places like Brna, Zavalatica, Prizba, Blato, Vela Luka, which are well Worth visiting. Due to a heavy summer traffic on the main road, distance between the places, summer heat and lots of uphills across the central part of the Island, it is advisable not to visit this places by scooters or bicycles. For this kind of trips towards the west part of the Island of Korcula, as the safest and most comfortable means of transport, we recommend hiring a car.
