Island of mljet

otok mljet

Famous for its stories and legends, the Island of Mljet is the largest island of the Dubrovnik Archipelago and the home of the Mediterranean monk seal. The island boasts a rich history and archaeological and cultural sites. The Mljet National Park is situated in the western part of the green island.
A one-hour boat ride departing from Gruž harbour will take you to the island, and a ferry connects it with the Pelješac Peninsula. The port of call on the Island of Mljet is Sobra, and during the tourist season a hydrofoil also operates from Dubrovnik to Polače, from where one can reach the national park by a mini-bus. One can rent a bicycle or a smaller car on the island, but vehicles are not allowed in the national park.
You will be fascinated by the untouched nature in the park and by the beauty of the Great and Small Lakes connected with the open sea by a narrow channel. In otok mljet the middle of the Great Lake stands the Isle of St Mary with the 12th century Benedictine Monastery of St Mary, which can be reached on a small boat. Do not miss the walks along the lovely wooded paths by the lake. You will take pleasure in the ancient pine forest reaching as far as the lake shore. In close proximity to the national park is the picturesque little harbour of Pomena, where the only hotel on the island - the Odysseus Hotel - is located. Pomena is one of the destinations in the famous South-Dalmatian Sailing Regatta which has traditionally taken place on the Dubrovnik-Mljet-Orebić route for many years now.
