Croatia really has it all. A stunningly beautiful coastline, clean lakes and mountains, eight glorious national parks, more than 1000 wonderful islands, wrapped up with endless warm sunshine. Explore and absorb Dalmatian life within the buzzing vibrant towns with just the right balance of history and modern flavours. Or howabout getting away from it all to Croatia’s greenest island of Mljet – an unspoilt seductive oasis of tranquillity, difficult to resist.
There aren’t too many spots in Mediterranean that can still boast blissfully crowd-free holidays, quiet beaches and moments of pure relaxation. If this sounds what you’re looking for – it’s time to meet the secrets of the Island of Mljet.
As one of the most seductive Adriatic islands, the majority of the island is covered by pine forests, vineyards and petite villages, known as the greenest island in Croatia.
It really is a paradise for anyone looking to get away from it all. A place with very few residents, no large towns and believe it or not – only one major road.
The north-western half of the island consists of Mljet National Park, with wonderful lush vegetation, pine forests and exceptionally scenic saltwater lakes – a true unspoiled oasis of tranquillity. The highlight and perhaps the most unusual feature of Mljet National Park is the two inland salt water lakes – Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero which are connected to the sea by a single narrow canal.
The great thing is there are so any things you can do while you’re there. Take a gentle stroll along the lakes on pine-shaded paths, cycle through the park, rent a kayak or simply take a dip in the clear, blue water.
Make Mljet one of your highlights and take a step back, unwind and enjoy the true nature of this charming stress-free Adriatic island.
