- Explore the magical island and greenest of all islands on the Adriatic
- Stop for swimming and snorkeling along the way
Island of Mljet is the most beautiful and most forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful pearls of the Mediterranean. Untouched nature, the island's mysticism, olive groves, vineyards and rich forests are ideal places to research the rich flora and fauna, and to peacefully enjoy the pristine beauty of the natural surroundings. Famous for its astonishing National Park, the island is a forested paradise containing miraculous sea lakes and the Benedictine monastery of Saint Mary, dating back to the 12th century.
Upon departing Gruz harbour we make a stop at the blue cave on the island of Kolocep before we continue to Mljet. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of several islands along the way before we arrive at Polace which is also the entrance to the National Park. Disembark to explore the National Park at your leisure, if you wish you can go bushwalking or hire bicycles to explore the national park, inland lakes and visit the Benedictine monastery on a small hidden island of St. Mary. After exploring we visit the small fishing village of Pomena where you can enjoy lunch at a seafront restaurant. After lunch we head back to Dubrovnik stopping at bays and coves along the way where you can simply relax and take in the beauty of nature, or explore the sea while swimming or snorkeling.
Also we can arrange two types of tour:
Island of Mljet Option 1: Main stop at Polace – entrance to National Park: If you want to have free time to disembark and visit the National Park and lakes then we take you by boat to Polace where there is an entrance to the National Park. You have free time to explore: go bushwalking, visit the lakes etc. You can have lunch at Polace before or after your visit to the Park. You will also have time to stop along the way for swimming and snorkeling (how much time will depend on how long you spend exploring the national park). Travel time from Dubrovnik to Mljet National Park entrance is approx 1hr 45min by boat.
Island of Mljet Option 2: Visit Saplunara: Small town of Saplunara is a picturesque bay and beach where guests like to visit to go swimming and snorkeling. Saplunara may be the last hidden jewel left in the Adriatic. Just when you thought every single white sand beach on a pine-rimmed cove had long since been colonized by sea-seeking visitors, Saplunara remains isolated and largely untouched. Its beauty is truly a balm to the soul.We can make a stop before or after at nearby uninhabited islands for swimming. There are some great restaurants at Saplunara for lunch, so you can try the local mediterranean food as well.
