We stayed at Pension Lovric for three nights as part of a two week holiday on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, flying into Dubrovnik and out of Venice. Silvana and her team made us feel very welcome. The apartment, with balcony, overlooks the sea and is situated just a few minutes walk from Lumbarda town, and smooth white rocky beaches where you can sunbathe and jump straight into the blue Adriatic sea. Lumbarda is a lovely town with a local market one night each week where you can buy delicious seafood dishes and wine for an inexpensive dinner (Croatia is not cheap).
Korcula town is also beautiful, especially the old part with its fortresses on the coast and narrow white stone streets to explore, with shops, bars and restaurants.
We were even given a packed breakfast by Pension Lovric to take with us very early next morning for the catamaran in Korcula to take us to another island.
In Croatia, we stayed in apartments during our trip to make it more affordable. Generally these are very basic, but very clean. Bearing this in mind Pension Lovric rooms are nice the staff were very helpful and they have a restaurant too.
If you plan to travel from island to island in Croatia, information on things like ferry and catamaran times can only be got from ticket offices at the destination. From Dubrovnik to Mljet and from Mljet to Korcula you can only buy tickets on the day, not the day before. However from Korcula to Hvar, which is very busy, you have to buy the tickets the day before.
Travelling by boat and catamaran is a good way to see the Dalmatian Coast. We took an overnight ferry up to Rijeka from Stari Grad on Hvar, managing without a car for the trip, which can be done. Boats and buses are clean and always leave on time.
Rovinj (buses from Rijeka via Pula are more frequent than Rijeka-Rovinj) is a pretty city too, where you can hire bikes and cycle along two miles of coast with plenty of places to stop and swim. There are nice places to have a drink, though all the restaurants are so geared up for the tourist trade that meals are expensive. If your stay does occur during one of the town’s evening festivals, get a ticket for a seafood dinner and glass of wine, as it is just as delicious and much better value than the restaurants.
If you want to go somewhere really beautiful on the Dalmatian Coast, then book a trip to Mljet where you can hire bikes and cycle round the national park’s salt water lakes, as these are stunning and peaceful.
