Island Mljet

As one of the larger islands in South Dalmatia, Island Mljet is regarded for having Croatia’s most verdant, green and beautiful landscapes. Bordered by a sandy coastline, clear and sparkling waters, and lush, Mediterranean flora, Mljet is equal parts seductive and discreet.

An unspoiled oasis of tranquility, Island Mljet is distinguished by its two saltwater lakes, Veliko Jezero and Malo Jezero, the first of which encompasses another island – one that holds nothing but an old Benedictine monastery floating peacefully in the lake’s center.

Known for producing delectable white and red wines, olives and goat’s cheese, Island Mljet boasts a local gastronomic scene unlike any other place on earth. According to legend, Odysseus was held captive on Island Mljet for seven years; just outside one of the island’s quaint, and perfect, fishing villages.
