The Island of Mljet is located just 45 minutes boat sail toward the east from Island Korcula in the direction of Elafiti islands Sipan, Lopud, and Kolocep and further to Dubrovnik. It is a green and tranquil island of the Adriatic Coast for which a lot of people who visited it find it very seductive.
Over two-thirds of the island is covered by a dark green forest of pine wood and other Mediterranean vegetation. The rest of the island is dotted by fields, vineyards, and small villages. This is an island of forests and salt-water lakes, with one-third of the island protected by national-park status. Mljet is almost an untouched island where one can enjoy its sights, smells, and sounds of untouched nature.
The most attractive area of the island is its western part which is a protected national park where two salt-water lakes Veliko and Malo Jezero are located. In the middle of the bigger lake (Veliko Jezero) is a tiny islet called Melita (St Mary’s Island) with a 12th-century Benedictine monastery.
Mljet National Park occupies the island’s western third and includes gentle coves and a pair of saltwater lakes. This area of National Park is perfect for walking, swimming, cycling, and enjoying simple tranquillity.
Most people visit this tranquil island on day trips or excursions from either Korcula or Dubrovnik.
