Mljet Island Tours

22 reviews
Overview
Mljet Island is Croatia’s most lush, forested island in the Adriatic Sea. The western cape contains Mljet National Park, where pine forests and spectacular saltwater lakes offer incredible natural scenery. On the nearby tiny island of St. Mary, not far from the southern shore of Veliko Jezero, there is a Benedictine monastery and St. Mary’s church.

The Basics
The island of Mljet is easy to visit on a day trip from Dubrovnik or Korcula. Nature lovers will adore Mljet National Park, where you can stroll along the lakeside paths, hire a bike to explore the island via its many paths, rent a kayak to paddle the lakes, or simply swim in the lake’s pristine waters. Visitors can also opt for a private speedboat or yacht cruise to explore the area. The park is not the only draw to the island, as Mljet is also a hot spot for scuba divers, and plenty of sandy beaches and natural caves are found on the eastern tip of Mljet.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Mljet National Park is a must-see attraction for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven paths.

  • Don’t forget your swimsuit, as the lakes are ideal for swimming.

  • Although the forested park provides plenty of shade, you’ll still want to pack sunscreen and a hat.

  • Make sure to travel with coins, as the park’s public restrooms require a fee.


How to Get There
Mljet Island is 23 miles (37 kilometers) from Dubrovnik and is the southernmost of Croatia’s larger islands. Most visitors arrive by daily ferry and boat connections from Dubrovnik or as part of a guided tour from Dubrovnik or Korcula. The nearest major airport is in Dubrovnik.

When to Get There
Mljet Island and Mljet National Park can be visited year-round. In winter (from November through March), the ferries from Dubrovnik run less often, so you may have to spend the night on the island to ensure you have enough time to explore the park. Visiting Mljet Island on a guided tour from Dubrovnik is one of the most convenient ways to visit the island in winter.

Visiting Odysseus' Cave on Mljet Island
Legend has it, Mljet is the ancient Ogygia from Homer’s Odyssey. After allegedly being shipwrecked, Odysseus swam to this cave where he met the beautiful Calypso and was so captivated by her that he spent the next seven years living on the island. You can visit the cave by boat or by walking from the village of Babino Polje.
