You still haven't finished your nautical dreams on Korčula, because the other side of the island is home to untouched coves, a true attraction for sailors. You can also drop anchor in Karbuni Bay, protected from winds, nearby which there are many islets with hidden coves for swimming, diving, sunbathing... On that same, southern side of the island, you will find attractive Prižba, with several smaller coves and two peninsulas. In Prižba, surrounded by vineyards and the extravagant villas formerly owned by aristocrats, refresh yourself in some of the restaurants and bars and sail off to the nearby islands, which are perfect places for enjoying the sun and the sea. It is worth the effort to sail to the northwestern side of the island to Prigradica Bay, which is recognizable for its large promenade and stone and pebble beaches. There you will find restaurants and cafés, along with plenty of facilities for an active vacation on land. The western side of the island, where Vela Luka is located in a deep, protected bay, is also worth a visit. Along with plenty of berths, there you will also find superb restaurants with delicious island specialties, along with a lot of other things to do. Another naturally closed and protected bay is Gradina, and in Vela Luka the construction of a marina has started which will offer plenty of facilities for sailors in the upcoming years. Sail off to the most popular island of the Vela Luka archipelago, Proizd, which has pearly beaches that take the breath away of anyone who visits them. The white stone immersed in the turquoise sea at the Bili Boci beach, on the northern side of the island, definitely places the beach amongst the most attractive beaches on the Adriatic. There is also a small dock on the island, next to which there is a restaurant that offers local and international cuisine. Sail around the islet of Ošjak, which is also known as the "island of love", and while on the western side of the island of Korčula, don't forget to watch the irresistible sunset at dusk.
