Blato is one of those places where you could spend an entire year and not get bored of it. It is really rich in every sense of that term. Blato is a small town located on the island of Korčula where the myriad of facilities will never keep you in one place. But, lets begin with the history of Blato. It really is a charming little place that will not be remembered for its lack of churches. Pay special attention to the parish church and the Sanctuary of the blessed Marija Petković if you seek for spiritual guidance.
Accommodation in Blato is provided in Hotel Alfir and Hotel Prigradica. If you had to choose between the two, do take a look at the first one as its more peaceful than any hotel on the Adriatic coast. The only noise you'll here there will be the one of crickets and the breeze caressing the leaves. Private accommodation is available in neighboring coves and there are many holiday villas in Blato to choose from.
Also, do have a look at the modern apartment settlement in Blato called Priscapac as it offers decent accommodation at an affordable price and its location is superb. This particular row of apartments in Blato was built on the very coast and has a spectacular view and a sunny disposition plus that’s the quickest way to find accommodation right next to a beach in Blato.
Many noblemen in Blato built their residences there because of its climate that is warm throughout the year, with really sunny summers and mild winters. Entertainment in Blato is insane, unlike many other islands in Croatia. There are pop and rock concerts throughout the year, fiestas during the summer, drama programs, caricature competitions, etc. The fun in Blato usually begins with a Dalmatian folk song performed by one of the three folk groups there (folk meaning "klapa" in this case) who create an authentic Dalmatian atmosphere with the first note from the chorus. Entertainment in Blato is also possible in terms of hiking, biking or diving so be sure not to miss either of those when you're down there.
