If your Croatian itinerary includes both Split and the island of Korcula, you might find this guide to travelling from Korcula to Split useful. The guide of course also applies if you travel in the opposite direction.


There are three routes you can choose between when travelling from Korcula to Split and all of them of course include travelling by ferry or catamaran. There are two ports on the island of Korcula, in cities of Vela Luka and Korcula.

By car: if you are travelling by car the first option is to take a ferry from Korcula to Orebic on the peninsula of Peljesac and then go to Trpanj by car where you will take another ferry to Ploce. From Ploce you take either the coastal road or the highway to Split. This route is 158 km long and which is about 4 hours and 23 minutes of travelling. The second option is to take a ferry from Korcula which stops in Stari Grad (on the island of Hvar) and continues to Split. This route is 107 km long which equals a travel time of 3 hours and 25 minutes. This is a coastal ferry line from Rijeka to Dubrovnik, running only in the season from the end of May till the end of September and it runs twice a week. The third option is a ferry from Vela Luka which travels 3 hours and 49 minutes which is a distance of  87 km.
If you don't have a car, you can take a catamaran which is a faster option than ferry. There are two catamarans to choose between:

1) Vela Luka (Korcula) - Hvar - Split - the distance on this route is 130 km which equals a travel time of 2 hours and 20 minutes

2) Korčula - Prigradica -Hvar - Split - travel time on this route is 2 hours and 40 minutes.
