Southern Dalmatia is a sailor's paradise, starting in Dubrovnik sailing past miles of secluded coastlines and several don’t-miss islands. Korčula, Mljet, Lopud, Hvar, Brač, and Vis just to name a few of the islands. You'll find some of the best kayaking and windsurfing in this region. We put together a list of Southern Dalmatia's most popular areas to sail to on your next trip.
Each side of the island offers something different: from the fortified walls of Korčula Town and the pebbly and pristine beaches of Lumbarda to the rocky shores and lush nature of Proizd and Ošjak islands near Vela Luka.
After a full day of sailing, you'll return to Korčula Town's harbor to stroll amongst medieval walls, and narrow streets patterned like a fish skeleton—a design made to reduce the effects of wind and sun.
