Zitna beach
Zitna is a hidden little bay on the south side of Korcula Island bordered by Mediterranean flora and large pine trees. It is located very close to the bay of Zavalatica, on its eastern side and village of Cara. Zitna is connected by narrow and asphalted roads to both of these places, and it is actually within the walking distance from them as it is just about 3 km from Cara (30 minute walk) and just around the corner from Zavalatica.

The bay has its own pebble beach, covered with white and shiny pebbles that get very warm in the summer, so it is extremely pleasurable to lay on it after a good swim. As Zitna is an unpopulated bay having just one house built there, it used to be undiscovered by tourists and was a place to go and have a quiet swim and long soak in its amazing azure waters. Recently it becomes very popular as a day trip destination for tourists and locals alike and it can get quite crowded in the summer months.

The best thing about Zitna is the colour of the seawater in the bay itself. It is a blue-and-green mixture of reflecting sunlight enhanced by the clarity of the clean water. The colour of the sea is a result (as in any other bay ) of the type of seafloor that is beneath it. Zitna seafloor is mostly sandy so those large sandy patches make the colours of the bay so unique.

Nerica winery
Known for its quality since ancient times, Korčula’s autochthonous wines have been exported throughout history to Venice and the Vienna Palace. It is rare in the world, but this climate has all five zones (sum of sunshine hours and temperature) necessary for the production of top quality wines. Korcula Posip is the first white wine with protected geographical origin and worldwide reputation. Grapes are the basis of wine production, so the moment of harvest and the harvest itself is one of the most important steps in production. When we choose grapes from which we want to make wine, we should start with a visual inspection where you can see if they are healthy and if they are generally in order. After numerous stages in wine production that require knowledge and experience, the ideal period from processing to bottling is a few months, and the length of that period depends on the style of wine you want. If you want to produce a fresher and fluffier wine, that period will be shorter, while for more serious wines it will be longer.

It used to be a non urbanized bay with the only couple of small houses used by local fishermen, where people from Smokvica would go to overnight before long fishing days.

It developed in the 19th century when, during Austro Hungarian Empire, when the pier was built to be used as a port for the village of Smokvica for export of local wine. Since the early 1970s Brna become a place where people from Smokvica started to build their summer houses close to the sea. That’s how Brna slowly become a village of its own, with rows of detached houses that have flats and apartments for rental to tourists and visitors. Around the same time, Hotel Feral was also built, so Brna became a ‘proper’ tourist place too.

As Brna is a very deep bay, it is popular with sailors as their overnight anchorage spot, as it is well sheltered from dangerous winds. At the shallow part of the bay, there is a small pebble beach called ‘Zal’, next to which are a couple of large and old pine trees with huge branches that provide a comfortable shade on the hot summers day.

Coordinated by the local museum and an international team led by Cambridge University in the UK, digging seasons take place here every September. Fragments of ceramic cult objects found here in recent years have produced something of a sensation in archeological circles – thought to be around 17,500 years old, they are believed to be the earliest examples of clay craftsmanship in Europe. Visitors can peer into the excavation trenches and soak up the atmosphere of Indiana-Jones-style discovery, although there’s no museum display inside the cave as yet. A mute brown stone marks the spot where ‘Stanko’, a 9,000-year-old skeleton (one of the oldest human skeletons yet excavated in the Mediterranean) was discovered a decade ago. Vela Spila is a five-minute walk uphill from Vela Luka’s seafront.
