Quote about Orebic from Sunday Times UK: "Stick a pin anywhere on a map of the Croatian coast and you’re likely to hit on an unspoilt beach and a sleepy fishing village or two. If you’re lucky, you might find a lovely little place like Orebic, on the Peljesac peninsula, north of Dubrovnik. It has a long, sandy beach, restaurants serving black squid risotto and whitebait, and a jetty where you can take a 15-minute ferry ride to the delightful island of Korcula. "
