The central Dalmatian island of Korcula stretches out parallel to the nearby mainland in the West-East direction. The island is 46.8 km long, 5.3 – 7.8 km wide on average, and has a surface of 270 square kilometers. It is also the 6th largest island in the Adriatic Sea. It is separated from the Peljesac peninsula by the Peljesac Channel, with only 1,270 m of distance. The coastline is 182 km long, and the coastline of nearby islets is only 54 km away.

The island is indented with a series of bays and coves. The North coast is fairly low, although easily accessible, and has several natural ports protected from the South and East winds: Korcula, Banja, Racisce, Vrbovica, Babina, Prigradica.
