During your free time, between kayak route and ferry, we suggest you have a light lunch or a coffee at the Riva. Your arrival to the Korcula is planned for around 6:25 pm.

Korcula is a historic fortified town on the protected east coast of the island of Korčula. It  was very
early populated; even before Greek times and evidences can be seen on your ride! During the history it was chosen by Venetians as a spot to build their important walled city on the northern shores of the island.  Its popular name is ‘Little Dubrovnik’, as a wonderfully romantic promenade runs through the town by the city walls and is teeming with lively cafes. Korčula town is also claimed to be the birth place of Marco Polo.
