Viganj

Small town Viganj lies in the beautiful and quiet sandy bay to the west of Cape Liberan in the western part of the peninsula Peljesac. The town is just 6 kilometers away from Orebic, and it is also accessible from Korcula, as a boat ride lasts only 15 minutes. This is very important especially for the local population as the town of Korcula is actually the center of life in this part of Dalmatia. Access to the town of Viganj is also possible by car from the mainland across the peninsula of Peljesac, as well as by ferry services, which are available every day.viganj
