The town of Korčula, in the northeast of its namesake South Dalmatian island, is among the most beautiful and best preserved medieval towns on the Croatian coast and in all of the Mediterranean, and is justly referred to as “Little Dubrovnik.” ACI Marina Korčula is situated right next to its historic centre. The town is 130 kilometres from Dubrovnik’s Ćilipi Airport, and in the summer the island has good ferry connections to Orebić on the Pelješac peninsula, to Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Lastovo and Hvar, and to Drvenik and the Italian towns of Ancona and Pescara. There are fast catamaran services to Lastovo, Hvar and Split throughout the year, and to Dubrovnik in the summer. ACI Marina Korčula, which offers an unforgettable view of the town ringed with centuries-old stone walls, has 159 berths and 16 dry berths.
The town of Korčula is home to the oldest Croatian legal code, also the second oldest among the Slavs: the Korčula Town Statute dates back to 1214. It is also known worldwide as the birthplace of the famous explorer and traveller Marco Polo. ACI Marina Korčula is an excellent starting point for exploring not only the renowned adventurer’s life, but also the rich history of the town itself, as well as everything that has earned it a privileged position among Croatian island towns.
Did you know that…?
…the island of Korčula is surrounded by 19 smaller islands with gorgeous beaches – each of them a veritable paradise for boaters.
…Korčula’s seafarers and travellers often brought home customs and spectacles that they witnessed abroad and liked, and that is how the knightly game of Moreška originated. This dynamic sword dance of black and white knights is over 400 years old, and survives only on Korčula.

A regular ferry service to Orebić on the Pelješac peninsula connects Korčula town to the mainland. From Pelješac one can drive 130 km to Dubrovnik’s Ćilipi International Airport, or take a ferry to the town of Ploče on the mainland. During the main tourist season a ferry service connects Korčula town and the town of Drvenik on the Makarska Riviera several times a day. There is a daily catamaran service to Split, as well a daily ferry service from Vela Luka (40 km away) to Split. During the main tourist season there are also ferry services to Rijeka and Dubrovnik.
Korčula is a town and harbour in the north-eastern part of its namesake island. The harbour is divided into an eastern and a western section, with ACI’s marina located in the eastern section. When approaching from Hvar through the Peljašac (Pelješki) Channel the red lighthouse (Fl R 2s 7m 4M) serves as a landmark; its exact position is 42°57.8’ N 17°08.4’ E. The marina is sighted after rounding the lighthouse and the whole of the peninsula, which is encircled by prominent town walls, with the easily visible cathedral bell tower. The entrance to the marina on the south side of the breakwater is marked by a green lighthouse (Fl G 5s 7m 4M). The safest approach from the south is by rounding the Sestrice (Fl (4) W 15s 18m 11M) and Stupe Velike (Fl (Obscd) R 3s 9m 3M) lighthouses from the north, and then using the green lighthouse in the eastern part of the town harbour (Fl G 3s 7m 2M) as a landmark. During summer storms the western part of the town harbour should be avoided.
Note: It is recommended to use the official navigational charts published by HHI Split: 100-25, 100-27 and MK-22.
