Lumbarda, Korcula Island
Lumbarda is a small fishermen's village located on the eastern end of the Island of Korčula, few kilometres away from the town of Korcula, in Croatia. A road passing through a picturesque area of pine woods and olive groves connects these two places. The village is surrounded by sandy vineyards with well known white wine 'Grk' produced from the local grape.
Sandy beaches Vela Przina, Bilin Zal and Tatinja are among the most popular in the area. The village is also a tourist centre. Most of its 1200 inhabitants are wine-growers, fishermen and stone-masons, actively participating in the local tourist industry. It also has a rich history preserved in written documents dating back to more than two thousand years ago, from the Greek times.
TransportLumbarda is conveniently situated on the bus route and links to the whole of the Korcula island coastline from Korcula Town to Vela Luka.
