‘Wilma of Sweden’ Yacht Charter – Day 3

Day 3 of our adventure: Polace to Korcula. Polace is a port in a stunning bay at the base of Mljet National Park. The village has just over 100 inhabitants and has a number of ancient ruins dating back to 1st to 6th Centuries.

After another brilliant breakfast Toni transported us on the tender to Aloha Bike Hire where we rented electric bikes – SO cool – our first time on them … I can conquer any mountain! LOL. Armed with a map of the area we set off!

Thanks to the E Bikes it was an easy cycle to the national park which borders two salwater lakes with a large building of the former Benedictine Monastery erected here in the 12th century. We enjoyed a cycle and a swim but did not have enough time to take the ferry to the island and the monastery. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon followed by Pina Coladas at Konoba Antika.

After Una’s delicious lunch on the yacht it was time for more relaxing (or waxing!) and fishing…

After a nap the Boys spruced up well and we were soon transported by tender to a night out in Korcula. We very much appreciated the Boys covering dinner at the wonderful Konoba Adio Mare where we enjoyed an excellent seafood menu with an Italian flair. This may be down to the fact that during the first world war the island was promised to Italy in the 1915 Treaty of London in return for Italy joining France and the Great Britain. It was ruled by Italy from 1918 to 1921, after which it was incorporated into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. In 1991 the island became a part of Croatia. Sadly the tower cocktail bar was closed due to Covid but we had still enjoyed a wonderful day and evening.

Korcula Town is known as “Little Dubrovnik” because of its medieval squares, churches, palaces and houses), Vela Luka and Lumbarda.

Go back to Croatia OR to Day 4: Sailing – Korcula to Scedru (Borova Bay) to Bay of Vinogradišće. (Hvar)
