Welcome to the island of Mljet, the most beautiful and forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful pearls of the Mediterranean. Untouched nature, the island’s mysticism, olive groves, vineyards, and rich forests are ideal places to peacefully enjoy the pristine beauty of the natural surroundings.
Mljet was already mentioned in the fourth century BC in Greek literature and the numerous Greek amphora and shipwrecks along the coast of Mljet are evidence that Greek sailors stayed on its shores during their journeys. Mljet National Park makes up most of the island and there are several villages, two saltwater lakes – Veliko and Malo Jezero – and a Benedictine monastery on the island of Sv. Marija [St. Mary]. There are some of the best natural anchorages in the Adriatic in Polače.

National Park Mljet
Mljet National Park is the most important protected area of the Dalmatian south and it is the oldest National Park at the Adriatic. The park covers the western part of the island, which many regards as the most alluring in the Adriatic, full of lush and varied Mediterranean vegetation. The park includes two deep bays which, due to their extremely narrow links with the sea, are aptly named Great Lake and Small Lake.
