The Island of Mljet is the most densely wooded island of the Adriatic. Due to its old thick forests of Aleppo pine, Karst caves, two picturesque salt-water lakes (connected with the sea) many sandy, and gravel beaches, fishing grounds, etc., the western part of the island has been proclaimed a national park.
In the middle of island in the Big Lake, there is a small island of St. Mary, with a fortified monastery from the Romanesque period on it, like a castle from fairy tales. On an island within an island! This can be visited by a small boat that drives every half an hour back and forward. Around the lakes there is a big trail perfect for biking, walking or hiking. Fun part especially for children is the bridge between two lakes. Here, the current changes direction every 6 hours and it runs fast through the connecting channel which passes under a small bridge. You can rent a kayak as well and make a little tour around the lakes. The place is so magical you can spend the whole afternoon walking around and having fun but there are some few more interesting spots you would like to see while visiting island Mljet.
One of them is a cave called Odysseus cave which look like a huge circular whole into the stone. Bottom is filled with sea and there is a passage under which you can swim. Adventurists love this location because cliff jumping is possible. The tallest point from where you can jump is 50m but then there are lower spots as well. Docking with Gulet will be safest and most beautiful in bay Polače which is part of the national park but it has become pricey in the last few years. Make sure to consult with the captain on this topic.
