Surrounded by the tranquil blue waters of the Adriatic, Mljet is Croatia’s greenest island, with much to explore and enjoy. Surrender yourself to the peaceful silence of an island that is famous for its biodiversity, or set off on an adventure through the lush forest of the National Park. Water sports abound here. Famous for its two saltwater lakes, spend an afternoon snorkelling or scuba-diving the amazingly clear waters, where beautiful underwater gardens and ancient shipwrecks will leave you breathless.

Mljet Island is zigzagged with biking paths – the best are in Mljet National Park – and you can rent bikes, windsurfing boards, kayaks, canoes, boats, cars and scooters during your stay, providing endless opportunities to immerse yourself in nature. Don’t miss a hike through the national park, after which a short boat ride will take you directly to the island of St Mary, in the centre of the lake – home to an ancient, beautifully preserved Benedictine monastery.
