Our top three beaches on Korcula Island

A common question that we get asked is ‘Does Korcula have nice beaches?’

And the answer to that question is absolutely. Yes.

Tourists flock to Korcula as it is one of the few Croatian Islands that have sandy beaches! And the best sandy beaches are found a short walk from The White House Lumbarda.

Here are our top 3 beaches surrounding Lumbarda, on Korcula Island.

Vela Przina Beach


This southerly facing long sandy beach is popular with couples and families alike, looking out across the channel it is backed with long-grass which surrounds the accompanying ‘Grk’ vineyards.

My Favourite for: there’s a rustic charm about the bay in which this sandy beach sits; and when sauntering back to The White House at the end of a relaxing day sunbathing you can’t help but pass two of the best wineries in the village. There’s nothing better after a day at the beach than watching the sunset with tapas and wine; or why not take a bottle back to your apartment to sip as you get ready for dinner?

Billin Zal Beach

A lagoon like bay shelters this north facing sandy beach from any prevailing breeze. This is a popular spot to watch yachts sail by.

My Favourite for: the gentle sloping shallow water making this beach a perfect spot for snorkelling and swimming; and a safe place for paddling. Plus, there is a lot of seating in the café making it a great place to socialize over an ice cream. The short coastal path with views out to the Korcula Archipelago that leads you to and from this beach is also a very pleasant stroll.

Prvi Zal Beach

The most central beach in Lumbarda, from The White House pass by the village square, watersports kiosk and ice cream parlour with the marina on your left. Prvi Zal beach and trendy bar is centrally located offering all the water activities for your stay. Near by you can hire a boat, kayak and paddleboard to nearby small islands on the Korcula Arpilegacho.

This is a pebbled beach with comfortable loungers and chairs offering a water inflatable park; a perfect alternative to the two sandy beaches perfect for when you are craving some water activities too.

My favourite for : Being so centrally located, Prvi Zal is the beach to hang out if you want to watch the action! The Hop On / Hop Off water taxi stops nearby; yachts come and go into the marina, and the water sport kiosk is round the corner. A great place to take in all the action happening on the water, and if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, why not try out the inflatable water park just offshore here? The cool Prvi Zal café / bar is also a fabulous way to end the day, sipping your favourite cocktail watching the yachts sail by!


  • Central location to Lumbarda village
  • Bar with chillout lounge
  • Sun loungers/ chairs
  • Inflatable water park

All of the above beaches are within 10 to 15 minutes walk from the White House in Lumbarda.
