Mljet

Croatia
Mljet travel packages
Where Odysseus and Calypso relaxed
Mljet is an often overlooked pearl among Croatia's islands. This is a forested beauty with breathtaking nature, amazing beaches and long history. Half of the island is protected by a national park offering pine woods, salt lakes and numerous trails for hiking and biking, a tranquil area perfect for exploration and relaxation.
In ancient times, Mljet was a maritime hub, as attested to by numerous shipwrecks, a medieval monastery, Roman palace, and even older Illyrian fortification and tombs. According to legend, this is even the island where Odysseus lived with Calypso! While you could day trip to Mljet from Dubrovnik, it makes the ideal peaceful getaway for a few days of calm.

What we love about Mljet

It might sound surreal, but Mljet, just a short distance from busy Dubrovnik, is all about untouched nature and escaping from civilization. It hosts a national park, two lakes, a lot of greenery, and secluded beaches. It is a perfect place for those who want to relax away from crowds but also for those seeking activities. You can walk or cycle, rent a canoe or kayak, scuba dive, or just swim in the crystal clear sea as a break from soaking up the sun on one of its secluded beaches. What a divine island!

When I close my eyes and try to imagine the most perfect place for summer holidays, I see Mljet. It has everything I need: untouched nature, peace and quiet with only the sound of waves and cicadas and crystal blue sea. If you want to relax and enjoy - Mljet is a place to rest your body, mind and soul.

Mljet is a paradise on earth! It's known as Croatia's greenest island, and there are numerous good reasons that most of the island is protected by a national park. No matter how worried or stressed you are, you can instantly feel healed on Mljet. The natural sites of the island are spectacular and there are many opportunities to enjoy Mljet from different perspectives, whether enjoying long walks, biking, or kayaking. Although doable as a day trip from Dubrovnik, I recommend staying on Mljet overnight.
