Vela Przina Beach
Vela Przina is the largest and best-known sandy beach in Lumbarda and one of the most popular on the whole Korcula Island and beyond. Facing the south, this beach is one of the sunniest and driest places on the Island too. The eastern end of the half-kilometer-long sandy beach is the quietest while the west end is popular with families and visitors. The beach overlooks the Lastovo Channel and offers unrestricted views over the sea and horizon.
Views over the beach
Situated in the south-facing bay very close to the end bit of the island (see below map), the beach borders with famous Grk Wine vineyards on the north and pine woods on the east edge. The beach is also well visited out of swimming season by people who come here for a stroll and to observe the waves that can be pretty large around here on windy days.

Approach to the beach
Getting here by car:
If you are driving from Korcula town or any other place on the Island, once you approach the Lumbarda village, follow the sign “beaches” which will be on your right side of the road, turning right. This direction will take you up the hill to the less busy road which circles the village to avoid the center and narrow lanes among the vineyards. Parking here is provided right behind the beach. It is paid parking in May to September period. For the rest of the year, parking is free.
