Located on the eastern side of Korcula Island, the romantic village of Lumbarda is annually visited by several hundreds of foreign visitors. Here’s what they enjoy during their vacation in the settlement.
The surrounding sea hides many secrets, since the area has been populated by Illyrians, Greeks and Romans of the ancient times. The presence of these powerful civilizations has left presence in forms of underwater amphorae and similar items of archeological value. All you have to do in order to reveal the mysteries of Lumbarda, is to rent your scuba gear and explore the realm which hides beneath the waves.
As you probably know by now, donkeys are quite present on Croatian soil. The animals serve as means of transportation, and often assist their owners during hard work in fields. When not being in their usual stubborn mood, they show genuine intelligence, which can come in handy during an annual donkey race through streets of Lumbarda.
Every summer, hundreds of Lumbarda residents and their visitors swarm the local beaches with small shovels. They gather in order to participate in a special competition. Who will make the most original, unique and impressive statue made of sand? The youngest contestants can be only few years old, while others might even have an artistic education. But one thing is certain- for a limited time, beaches of Lumbarda look as a coastal theme park.
And speaking of beaches, who could resist the sandy softness of Vela Przina? Lumbarda’s popular swimming place offers terrains for volleyball and picigin, in addition to clear sea and fascinating view of neighboring Island of Lastovo.
