Korčula is one of Croatia’s most cherished islands in the Adriatic Sea, just off the Dalmatian coast. It is 20 miles long, only four to five miles wide, and is Croatia’s sixth largest island. The Greek name Corkyra Melaina was given to Korčula by a colony of Greeks coming from Corfu. When they first laid eyes on this lovely island, they were awestruck by the dense forests that cover the hills, giving it the illusion of blackness. Taking the name Corfu from their homeland, they added Melaina, meaning black. Hence, Corkyra Melaina or Black Corfu.
