- Car, boat, cycle and scooter hire.
- Visits to one of the many restaurants , which offer Dalmatian specialities and excellent wines of the island and the rest of Croatia. Here you will feel the well-known hospitality of your Vela Luka hosts.
One of the ways to experience the beauty of the island is to take a cycling tour. The whole area of Vela Luka is criss-crossed with small lanes joining the bays, olive groves and vineyards. Many of these lanes lead directly to the sea, so you will have an ideal opportunity to find a small «private» pebble beach and enjoy the wonders of nature around you.
Tennis courts are adjacent to Hotel Adria. This hotel is situated in a beautiful small bay and is only a 5 minute drive from Vela Luka centre. Reservations and hire of equipment can be arranged at reception.
An interesting way of exploring the bays and inlets, is by hiring a boat and an experienced skipper, sa well. Delivery of the boat to your accomodation can be arranged.
You can take an invigorating 30 minute walk to Vela Spilja Cave. It is 130 m above sea-level. From here you have an unbelievable view of all Vela Luka. Note the stone walls «meje» , which zig-zag across the arable land.
You can also visit the hill «Hum», 377 meters above sea-level. From the top of this hill you can see the islands of Lastovo, Hvar and Vis, and when the weather is still and clear you may even glimpse the coast of Italy.
