The National Park might be Mljet’s main draw, but it’s not the island’s only attraction - the eastern tip of Saplunara is also widely renowned for its sandy beaches, hidden lagoons and natural caves. Most famous is the striking Odysseus's cave on the south coast, reached by a 30-meter tunnel from the shore and named after the legendary Greek king who was allegedly shipwrecked here and lived on the island for 7 years. Along with its abundant swimming and snorkeling areas, Mljet Island is also a hotspot for scuba divers, with a number of wreck dives and the chance to spot rare Mediterranean monk seals.
