“Stunning and quiet”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

If you want to head to an island which is a bit less touristy then here is your place. Just approx £5 return on a taxi boat and about a 20min or so boat ride you arrive on Badija from Korcula harbour. We got off the boat to find wild deer walking around which was bizarre and amazing. We walked away from where we docked as it seemed the busiest and was near the bar/restaurrant. Walking around the island you are pretty much on your own, hardly anyone was around and we found a quiet spot under the trees to have a picnic. There isn't so much of a beach here but we did find one small one after walking around which had amazing water to swim in. Badija also has a medieval Franciscan monastery on it and we were lucky enough to see a service that took place outside. One of the most unspoilt places I have ever been too, really beautiful and a must see.

“Nice island but stay away from the restaurant”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

We rented a boat and visited Badija. The Island is charming and has lovely water. The wild deer also adds to the attractions. The Island also has a restaurant which looks nice enough. We tried different dishes containing chicken - and should probably have realized something was not good when our risotto came in approx 10 minutes. In the evening when getting back to Korcula 6 out of the 7 dining in this restaurant became sick and started throwing up (the only one avoiding was the kid who only ate french fries).

In short - do visit the island but bring your own lunch!

“Sea and sun chill out zone”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

I met a lot of local people in Korčula, and that gave a different point of view to my stay. Badija was one of the places I visited with my Korčulan friends, where we would spend afternoons just chilling in the sun, swimming in the sea, and eating sea ursins the Korčulan way. The beaches are wild (rocks and stones) mainly, so get ready for an experience of nature untouched.
There is also the possiblity of seeing deer on the island.

“Nice island but rocky”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

You can find really good spots to relax on, our favourite was on the east side of the island at the small pier.
