A canvas of emerald, cerulean blue, and earthy yellow is what defines the haven of Mljet.
There is no island on the Dalmatian coast like Mljet that remains so utterly untouched. Seen from a distance, a verdant blanket of Mediterranean flora covers the isle’s slender figure and conceals its precious natural reserves. As you get closer, you will catch sight of a myriad of coves, bays, formidable reefs, and sea caves. Further inland, saltwater lakes will take over the scene. Mljet’s journey began as a site for the tale of Odysseus. But today, it is celebrated for its raw beauty and idyllic landscape.
To the western end, Mljet National Park lies between two saltwater lakes with its radiant ambiance. It is also home to the Benedictine Monastery, one of the few human traces on the island along with the stone houses scattered around. The creamy white monument is a unique spectacle in the uniform greenery, perched at the center of Veliko Jezero lake. The lake also offers local delights at a delightful restaurant.
A day wrapped up in the transcendent beauty of Mljet includes treks in the fragrant atmosphere, wildlife sightings around the lakes, and a visit to the villages of Pomena and Polače. At sunset, you can experience epic views of the surrounding islands. Throughout the rich history of the Dalmatian coast, Mljet has preserved its refined quality. And it remains a natural haven of the Adriatic.
