On the other hand, if you desire to spend your vacation with your pet on the islands there are a couple of things you should know about transport.
Pets are allowed on the ferries. You only need to stay with them outside on the desk and they should have a leash. However, there is a problem with the fast ferries as most do not have the outside area. You can take your pets but they need to stay in a box. This is why we recommend you to contact our VIP concierge department and they will arrange a private pet-friendly boat transfer for you and your furry friend.
The first villa we recommend on the islands is the villa Veni on Korcula island. This is a ground floor villa perfect for pets and people with small children. It is situated in a small bay, near the sea, and with private mooring.
