August 12, 2019 – Congratulations to Lumbarda, winners of this year’s Vecernji List Tourism Patrol award.
A nice boost for tourism in Lumbarda on Korcula, which has won the prestigious Tourism Patrol award, Croatia’s oldest tourism award, organised by newspaper Vecernji List since 1975. Vecernji reporters visit all the major destinations incognito and assess the quality of the tourism offer of each destination, before announcing a champion. Winners from 2013-2018 were Vis, Trogir, Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar and Korcula Town.
Lumbarda is known for its great beaches, relaxed lifestyle and one of Croatia’s finest white wine grape varieties, Grk. TCN last year reported on the top 5 things to do in Lumbarda.
In recent years, Korculan tourism has been focused on quality and not quantity, and the results are already being seen in a much higher level of tourism offer, as well as recognition. Although I haven’t fact-checked, this is possibly the first time that the Tourism Patrol award has remained on the same island two years in a row.
Take a tour of the destination with the Lumbarda Tourist Board in the video above.
