driving Split to Korcula

On September 28th we will be arriving in Split in the afternoon, picking up a car at the airport, driving to catch a ferry to Korcula. Any advice on the drive and catching a ferry to Korchula?

It will be an easy drive with lots of beautiful sites between Dubrovnik and Ston on the coastal road. The road up the Peljesac is nice too but you will mostly be inland....in wine country. If you like mussels you should stop in Ston for lunch on your way....will break up the trip nicely and Ston is a nice place. Then go on to Orebic and wait for the next available ferry to take you across to Domince then on to Korcula....if you want to swim at a nice sand beach then head to Lumbarda near Korcula Town. Have a great trip!

Barry,

Thank you--very helpful. After 3 days in Korcula, we are heading to Cavat --any thoughts on that leg of the journey?

this got a bit mixed up. barry meant lots of beautiful sites between Split and Ston.

you may also take a ferry to Korčula (Vela Luka) - check www.jadrolinija.hr, or drive to Ploče, take a ferry to Trpanj on Pelješac peninsula, then drive to Orebić and catch the short ferry to Korčula town.

it depends on how long time you intend to spend driving along the coast.

from Korčula to Cavtat - ferry to Orebić, driving along Pelješac peninsula, make sure you stop in Ston and visit its great wall, traditional saltwoks and oyster orchards, and then onwards along the coast to Dubrovnik and Cavtat...

you're very kind Barry...

I forgot to mention a mandatory stop at the River Neretva delta, near Ploče and Metković, where there's a neat place called Vid, with an archaeological museum built over the ancient Roman site of Narona, and with a great restaurant just across the street with local food (eels, frogs, local grappa), with a possible swim in the crystal clear small channels or a boat ride... quite unique!
