Attractions: National Park wandering, gastronomy, beaches, history, Odysseys cave
Mljet is all about untouched nature and escaping from civilisation.
Beautiful scenery, crystal clear sea, lakes, islands, rich cultural heritage, make this island truly paradise on earth.
Island abounds in fish, so it will surely be fresh if you order it, also lobsters, and we reccommend also „peka“ with lamb meat, or wild boar specialities, goat's cheese and wines.
Mljet is full of small ports and harbours, so you can anchor almost anywhere.
The Mljet National Park covers the western part of the island, so on anchor in this area you will pay ticket for entering the National park (125kn per adult) except if you are staying on the dock and just having a dinner in the restaurant.
Best locations for you are ports of Pomena and Polače,from where you can explore the Park by foot. Or rent a bike.
Unfortunately no tours were found.
The largest and the safest bay on the whole island, sheltered by 4 small islets, protected from bura and jugo. It has berths/buoys, few restaurants (we reccommend „Stella Maris“) cafes, basic market, ATM...
The village is at entrance at the Park, and you can reach the famous lakes in National Park walking (2km), passing by charming village Goveđari.
Among the few ancient ruins dating from the 1st to the 6th century, the greatest significance has the Roman palace from the 5th century, whos walls dominate the village.
Is small tourist place with hotel, couple of restaurants ( we reccommend „Barba Ive“), caffe bars, markets,souvenir shops, agencies...
It is a safe bay for anchorage, sheltered by a tiny island of Pomestak. In case of strong north wind bura – we reccommend Polače.
On the waterfront you can get water and electricity. On Mljet be careful with water, wasting is not allowed since the island has no water supply from land.
From here it takes 10 min walk through the forest to lakes in National Park.
Is the last hidden jewel in Adriatic. Beautiful sandy lagoon, with buoys, offering 3 sandy beaches Velika Saplunara, Mala Saplunara and Blace, is an ideal place for relaxing in green oasis.
To the most beautiful Blace beach yo will have to walk, because the depth there is only 1 meter so you cannot reach it by boat.
The area of Saplunara was recognized as an area of immense natural beauty and it was protected as an important landscape, with some endemic spieces.
There is a coffe bar on the beach where you can refresh yourself.
Small settlement with rental houses has little shop and restaurants serving authentic Dalmatian food prepared with love and skill - vegetables, seafood, lamb, wild boar, brodet (fish stew).
The Mljet National Park
is the oldest marine protected area in the Mediterranean.
The entire area of the park is extremely rich with life, and numerous endemic and endangered species.
The most famous locations and an important geological and oceanographical phenomenon are two deep bays filled with seawater, connected to each other with a very narrow channels known as Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero (Small and Great Lake). At the end of Veliko Jezero where the lakes meet the sea is little place Soline with few family restaurants.
You can refresh yourself in the lakes, and then you will be ready to take a walk around the lakes and up to the peaks of Montokuc and Veliki Sladin Gradac, from where you can see the entire National Park, island Peljesac and sea up to Korcula and Lastovo.
Visited location is also Benedictine monastery from 12th century located on the little island of St Mary on Veliko jezero reachable by boat from the national park (taxi boat is included in the ticket price)

Sheltered and secluded locations, popular stopover points for sailing boats on their way to Dubrovnik.
Holiday houses, small market, few restaurants – konoba, beach... is what this places offer.
You will find the buoys for the restaurant gests, also berths at the coast.
One more attraction to mention is Cave of Odyssey – egg shaped cave, located on the southern coast of the island Mljet, near the village of Babino Polje. It is named after the legend of Odysseus, who was allegedly shipwrecked near the cave and was trapped because of the nymph Calypso, who ruled the island. The cave can be entered by the sea, swimming or by smaller boat, because the entrance is about 4-5 m wide. Caves tunnel is about 20 m long, and the depth of the sea is about 10m.
