The house of his birth is situated in the center of the old town.Along its north coast, Korcula sports a necklace of pretty bays like Zrnovska Banja and Vrbovica whose small pebble beaches shelve gently into the clear Adriatic waters. Sand purists head for the south coast where they find beaches like the family-friendly Plaza Przina. It’s flush with beach bars and has plenty of sunloungers to go around.
