Orebic is the second
most favourite tourist destination in the Southern Dalmatia
, immediately following Dubrovnik .
Staying in Orebic is interesting, not only due to its beautiful
scenery but primarily for its geographic position.
It is situated below a very attractive mountain peak
of Sv. Ilija (961 m), popular among the fans of mountains,
towards which two hiking trails lead. The climb from
our house takes 2.5 hours. It is best to start at dawn,
to avoid heat, as it reduces the visibility and also
If you are unwilling to hike and still
would like to enjoy the view of the island of Korcula and
of Peljeski channel,
visit the Franciscan Monastery from the 15 th century
situated on the altitude of 150 meters. It was first
built for watching the Town of Korcula by the Republic
of Dubrovnik and in time it turned into the most significant
sailors' votive sanctuary of the Southern Dalmatia .
It hosts the maritime museum and one of the paintings
in its collection is the votive painting made by our
great-grandfather Captain B. Marinovic.
From our house,
located at the front end of Orebic, you can visit Korcula
if you go on a seaside walk (15 min) to the ferry port
in the very centre of Orebic and go aboard a vessel that
will take you (10 min) to the very centre of Korcula
(non-stop service). You may also go on one-day trips
by your car to Dubrovnik , stopping by in Ston and enjoying
the famous oysters, or you can go to the National Park
Mljet by ferry from Peljesac.
Orebic has the largest beach on Peljesac (below
our house) and many small beaches among the rocks, and
there is also a small archipelago between Orebic and
the island of Korcula which you may visit by rent-a-boat.
This is not all, because if you visit us you will find
so much other information on our notice boards making
your holidays in Croatia as pleasant and dynamic as possible.
