kalos1 On the west side of an Island Korčula lies a little picturesque Mediterranean town called Vela Luka. With its tranquillity and hospitality, natural beauties and attractions, Vela Luka is an unforgettable experience for all its visitors.
When you arrive, the glare of the sun, tremendous pine tree forests, olive groves, a little island called Ošjak, which has been drawing many poets' imagination, beautiful beaches of the Proizd Island and just as valuable spirit of the locals, will tell you more than words could ever say.Geographical location and the depth of the Vela Luka Bay caused sedimentation of the medicinal mud in Kale Cove.In addition to healing whirlpool and mineral water, Etesian medicinal climate completes excellent healing conditions.After sunbathing and swimming in the Kale Cove, people have noticed their chronic rheumatic illnesses significantly reduced or disappeared.The water in the cove is shallow, so swimmers would cover themselves with mud and take a sunbath. The more exposed to sun they were and the more sea mud they put on, the less problems they had with their illnesses. People spoke about their experiences so every year more and more people came to this cove, even from far away parts of the country and abroad.

That is how things were 150 years ago, and today?kalos-restoran
After a series of scientific research, carried out by Oceanographic Institute in Split, Laboratory of Balneology JAZU, Croatian Weather Bureau and Chemistry Laboratory in München under Prof. Schnell, had confirmed this mud possesses healing characteristics, in 1972 construction of ‘Kalos Health resort’ was initialized. In 1977 a dispensary was built, and today it has 240 beds.
