Orebic has a pretty old town and lovely beach at the end of the old town and is named after a famous seafaring family and was the maritime centre of the Peljesac Peninsula – Roman remains have been found here and, until 1806, it was part of the Dubrovnik administration. These days it is the biggest town on the peninsula (although it isn’t really very big!) and has all the amenities you’d expect in a rural town – bank, farmers market, supermarkets, butcher etc and is also home to the ferry port which you can catch to hop across to Korcula town on the island opposite either on foot or in the car – it’s a short crossing of about 15 minutes and there are frequent ferries.
It is a stroll from Orebic marina, along the promenade of sea captains mansions, to Trstenica beach at the other end is lovely and well worth doing. Trstenica beach is popular with families because of its soft sand and gentle slope into the shallow, clear sea as well as the cypress trees which shade the upper part of the beach. It’s a lovely beach, a mix of sand and pebble with a nice entrance to the sea, and it is ideal for families with small kids as there is a large area which is shallow. It is approximately 1 km long. From there it’s only a 10 minute walk into Orebic centre
There are cafes and tourist shops near by selling everything you need for a day on the beach. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Orebic to suit every taste – it is a vibrant yet relaxed little town. You’ll also find tennis courts and a football pitch!
