28 July 2021 – Croatia’s Korčula has been the world’s 5th best island to visit in 2021 in a survey by global travel site Big 7 of The 50 Best Islands in the World.
Using aggregated scores from media results, and contributions from the Big 7 Travel editorial team ranked the best islands in the world to visit.
“This diverse list spans from tropical cays in Puerto Rico to the archipelago islands of Iceland. From Mallorca to the Maldives, consider this your essential vacation guide,” Big 7 said.
Lummi Island, Washington was ranked no.1 on the list, followed by Palawan in the Philippines. Vanuatu’s Espiritu Santo was third and Sommarøy in Norway was fourth, just ahead of Korčula.
“Korcula is one of the must-visit destinations on Croatia’s South Dalmatian coast. It’s a little further out to get to than most of the other islands, so you can enjoy less crowds and a more laid-back feel. People call Korcula Town “Little Dubrovnik” because of its medieval squares, churches, palaces and houses, while the beaches and dense forest offer incredible scenery,” Big 7 wrote.
