Vela Luka has beautiful beaches. It is situated in deep bay with coasts overgrown with vineyards, olives, figs and pines. Vela Luka is safe anchorage for ships and sailboats because the bay is very deep. One part of harbour is reserved for fishing boats with fresh fish, so that makes gastronomic offer of Vela Luka and Korčula island healthy and more complete.
Every Thursday during summer in Vela Luka are held Fisherman’s evenings. On that event visitors can enjoy roasted fish, shrimp, octopus on salads, homemade wine, watermelons, “pršurate (fritule)” and other pastries for symbolic prices.
In September, it is time for “Vela Luka Outdoors” event with cycling and trekking races.
