Orebic harbour from N

The harbour of Orebić lies on the S coast of the Peljesac Peninsula on the Adriatic coast of Croatia, just two miles NE of the town of Korčula on the island of the same name. A former maritime centre and now a popular tourist resort, Orebic is the largest settlement along this stretch of coast until arriving at Dubrovnik. In addition to its thriving tourist industry, the town is also a centre for exploring the Peljesac wine-producing area, one of the most productive in Croatia.

A small 240-berth marina caters for the large number of yachts cruising along the Peljesac channel to and from Dubrovnik. Shelter in the marina is good, although strong W winds send in a swell.

Access to Orebic is from the E or the W along the Peljesac channel. If arriving from the E, a yacht needs to negotiate the numerous islands off Korčula.

From the W, the approach is straightforward as long as a yacht keeps half a mile offshore to avoid some inshore shallows to the W of the harbour.

The harbour lies towards the W end of the town, protected from the S and the E by a T-shaped breakwater. There is a light structure Fl G 3 s on the end of the breakwater. Entrance is from the W. Ferries berth on the jetty on the N side of the entrance and a good lookout should be maintained when entering.

Orebic harbour is operated as a marina, although it does not have the full facilities to be expected of a marina. Of a total of 240 berths, 30 are reserved for yachts in transit.

A visiting yacht should berth where directed, usually stern/bows-to the breakwater, where there are laid moorings. Depths along the breakwater range from 2.0 metres at the root to 4.0 metres at the end. Water and electricity at all berths. Other facilities include toilets and showers.

The 16th century monastery of Orebic
View from the summit of Mt. St. Elijah

The 16th-century Franciscan monastery of Our Lady of Angels, sited on a crag above the town, is a popular tourist attraction. The view over the Pelješac channel and Korčula (town) is superb. Even more impressive views can be enjoyed from the summit of St Elijah’s mountain behind the town. There are several good walking trails that lead to the summit. In the town, there is a small maritime museum with exhibits reflecting Orebić’s important role in maritime trade and fishing.
