How to get from Korcula to Dubrovnik?

Dubbed as the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, the striking Dubrovnik will enchant you with its ancient, walled medieval city. With its baroque architecture and limestone streets, backdropped by the ever-glistening Adriatic, it’s definitely a sight to behold!

Are you going straight to Dubrovnik Airport after visiting Korčula? You can also take a combined shuttle and ferry with Korkyra Info.

A ticket costs 280 KN (€37), and it is definitely more expensive than the bus. However, this option will save you the hassle of finding an extra transfer to the airport, especially since Dubrovnik Airport is located 25km south of Dubrovnik Bus Station.

Another thing we like about the shuttle is that they pick you up from your hotel in Korčula. Departure time from the island is 06:00, so you’ll have to be ready about 30 minutes before that. Arrival at Dubrovnik Airport is around 08:50.

Our favourite places to stay in Dubrovnik

Important: Tourism in Croatia is very seasonal. While many accommodations in Croatia shut down during the winter months, most of the accommodations get fully booked in the summer. With July and August being the peak season, rates can rise 3 times as high as compared the low season or shoulder months. We recommend booking your accommodation at least 1 month in advance to lock in better rates.
