Cycle Croatia – Day 5
Mali Ston, Orebic, Korcula
Cycling through the narrow streets of Ston I had to remember a couple of things from two days ago, to visit the restaurant we didn’t have time for, and not to tell anyone about the massive hill we have to climb.
The Restoran Bella Vista certainly lived up to its name with wonderful views down to the coast at Prapratno.
With great views and roads down to Zuljana, with hardly any traffic, then a coastal road that seemed to be there only for cyclists, I knew this was a special trip.
Then just before Trstenik, came the hill. 5k to climb 400m. That is steep, and with the temperature around 38C and no shade, we had to be careful. The monument at the top was very welcome.
After a short stop for coffee and some great views, we enjoyed a smooth surface on the descent down to Orebic.
With a short ferry to Domince, and a 3k ride along the coast we were at the hotel, a short walk from the amazing old town of Korcula.
