We can freely say that Korčula is one of the most attractive islands in the Mediterranean due to its natural beauty and indentation of the coast, so it is not surprising that many have chosen this place as the perfect destination to spend their vacation. In addition to natural beauty, Korcula is full of cultural sights, but also attractive locations that really do not leave anyone indifferent!
What definitely marks the summer months is lying on the beach, frolicking in the sea, soaking up every ray of sunshine and delicious cocktails, which are a little better if we enjoy them in an attractive location.
Massimo Cocktail Bar
A true example of this is the Massimo Cocktail Bar, which is located in the northern part of the town of Korčula, at the very top of the Zakerjan (Berim) tower. This tower was built in the period from 1481 to 1483, and it was designed and built by local craftsman Marko Andrijić. What makes this tower special is that its northern part faces the Pelješka Canal, which is why it offers a magnificent view to many visitors. You will reach the cafe itself by wooden stairs, but the climb is definitely worth it! So you will enjoy the sunset, a refreshing cocktail and great music, and of course enrich your Instagram feed with a few photos that will surely become fond memories over time!
Maksimilijan Garden Lounge & Beach Bar
Maksimilijan Garden is a lounge bar and one of the best restaurants in Korčula, and at the same time the most beautiful place to enjoy a beautiful sunset. Just a ten-minute easy walk along the sea from the old town, the Maksimilian garden is located as a real summer oasis. With its restaurant in a shady garden, excellent cocktails, relaxed atmosphere and occasional exhibitions of Croatian artists, the Maksimilian Garden has long been on the list of the most popular places on Korčula, so be sure to include it in your daily schedule.You’ll find friendly, relaxed staff and (depending on the time of day and season) something resembling the fledgling signs of what could become Korcula Town’s first true apres-beach bar. The cocktails are well-made, the setting superb and the garden restaurant is deservedly winning plaudits all of its own.
Capers is a sea-facing nightspot with live music and a comfortable atmosphere. Better known for cocktails than food (there’s a modest selection of tapas and pizza options) it gets a good crowd, and stays lively. Capers Cocktails&Dinner is a restaurant that prides itself on its top quality cocktails and is the address where a place is sought after in the summer. With a view of the sea, surrounded by the walls of the Old Town, here you can enjoy lunch or dinner, as well as delicious tapas snacks and Korčula wines.
Boogie Jungle Club
If, after a whole day of lying on the beach and lazily drinking colorful drinks, you want some dancing and great music, we suggest getting lost in the hustle and bustle of the Boogie Jungle club. The club is also one of the venues of the Korkyralis festival. The club comprises a largely al-fresco series of terraces and awnings with VIP areas, three bars, and plenty of room to circulate and mingle. Surrounded by dense Mediterranean greenery and with the capacity for 1,500 people, it’s the ideal venue for a long night of revelry. International DJs, themed events and festivals provide the peaks to a full summer programme.
Servantes café bar
Servantes cafe bar is located in the heart of downtown Korčula, serving coffee drinkers since the 1970s. A family-run establishment that offers coffee by day and cocktails by night, Servantes boasts an outdoor terrace that hosts live music in the summertime. And for those of you looking to keep things light, you can enjoy small bites and light smoothies. Hidden from the bus station by a cute wedge of park, Servantes offers a decidedly eccentric interior of irregular-shaped mirrors and pebble-dash effects, and a shady, lawn-side outdoor terrace. As well as the usual beers and wines they have a decent list of spirits including kruškovac (pear brandy), orahovac (walnut) and medica (honey).
