If you spend more than a couple of days around Dubrovnik Old Town try not to miss the opportunity to visit Mljet National Park on the Island of Mljet.
Visiting the untouched nature of Mljet National Park is the perfect break from everyday crowds in Dubrovnik. The island of Mljet is the largest island in the Dubrovnik archipelago, an island known for its stories and legends.
It is believed that Odysseus found refuge here after being shipwrecked when returning home from the Trojan War. A big part of this beautiful island is a national park, including the area around the two saltwater lakes.
Mljet is the greenest of all islands located on the Adriatic Sea and regarded as one of the most beautiful. Famous for its astonishing National Park, the island is a forested paradise containing miraculous sea lakes and the Benedictine monastery of Saint Mary on the island of St. Mary on Veliko jezero, dating back to the 12th century.
Upon departing Gruz harbour we will make a stop at the sea cave on the island of Kolocep before continuing to Mljet. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of several islands along the way before we arrive at Polace which is also the entrance to the National Park. Explore it at your leisure, go bushwalking or hire bicycles for a ride around the inland lakes and visit the Benedictine monastery. The small fishing village of Pomena is our next destination, where you can enjoy lunch at a seafront restaurant. After lunch it’s time to head back to Dubrovnik, stopping at bays and coves along the way for swimming, snorkeling or simply relaxing and taking in the beauty of nature.
