A national park of the same name includes a western part of, according to some, the most beautiful island in the Adriatic. The Park is characterised by two deep bays which are called lakes due to their very narrow passages to the open sea (Veliko and Malo jezero/ the Great Lake and the Small Lake), and lush and diversified Mediterranean vegetation.

It is of volcanic origin, with numerous chasms and gorges, of which the longest, the Babino Polje, connects the north and south of the island. Port Polace (It.

Mljet - Beaches:
Mljet has a lot of larger and smaller beaches to be enjoyed, located all along the Mljet shores.
 
Saplunara Bay and Beach:
Saplunara is a bay and small place located on the southeastern tip of Mljet that is famous for it's sandy beach Saplunara (meaning tiny sand in Latin). There are two sandy beaches in Saplunara: Large Saplunara and Small Saplunara. Large Saplunara is located in the very centre of the bay and village. Because of it's location, it gets much crowded than Small Saplunara, which is located a bit further along the bay.

Blace Beach and Bay:
This is another sandy beach on Mljet, located about half and hour walk from Saplunara. It is almost 1/2 mile long beach, secluded among sharp stones of Mljet southern shores. This hidden bay and beach is surrounded by pine trees and faces South and looks like a lagoon. The entrance from the sea to Blace beach is very narrow (only 8m wide) so the sea water inside the lagoon gets very very warm and is possible to swim here even at the times when sea water outside is still cold and not suitable for swimming. Because of it's isolated location, Blace Beach and Bay is popular among naturist and nudists too.

Large Lake ( Veliko Jezero):
The area of Large Lake ( Veliko Jezero) on Mljet is popular for swimming and sunbathing among visitors on day trips and excursions to National Park Mljet that comes at Mljet daily from Korcula or Dubrovnik. If you come here on the day trip, you will visit small island Melita and it's 12th century monastery and at lunch brake you will have opportunity to go for quick swim here at Large Lake.

Small Lake (Malo Jezero):
This is a popular swimming spot on Mljet Island. Because of it's secluded location, sea water in Malo Jezero ( Small Lake) is always calmer and much warmer than anywhere else on Adriatic. This makes this swimming spot very popular among Mljet visitors, as one can swim and sunbath here in May and October too when everywhere else at Adriatic water is cold for such kind of activity...

Mljet National Park has been proclaimed as an area of special interest for the following reasons:


• Its unique panoramic landscape of well intended coastline, cliffs, reefs and numerous islands, as well as the rich topography of the nearby hills, which rise steeply above the sea and hide numerous ancient stone villages. Mljet's outer coastline is exposed to the south sea and is therefore steep and full of "garmas" collapsed caves.

• The salt lakes are a unique geological and oceanographic phenomenon of worldwide importance. They originated approximately 10,000 years ago and, until the Christian era, they were freshwater lakes. Some endemic Dalmatian plants can only be found on the rocky coast of the island. A beautiful endemic plant, named Dubrovačka Zečina is the best representative of them all.

• The Mediterranean karst landscape hides two natural specialties. The first are typical karst underground habitats: half-caves, caves and pits. The other specialty is Mljet's "blatine", which are rare occurrences of brackish lakes, which vanish from time to time. There is life in the lakes, but we know very little about it today apart from the fact that people have caught eels and marsh birds in them for centuries.

• Beautiful, rich forests once covered large areas of the Mediterranean Coast, but they are rarely preserved today as beautifully as they are on Mljet. The woods on Mljet gently descend all the way to the surface of the lakes, thus creating an image of unspoiled nature.

• The little isle of St. Mary in the Great lake, with an ancient Benedictine monastery and a church dating from 12th century. The small island is the symbol of the entire island, because of its exceptional aesthetic image and strong cultural and spiritual dimension.

• Polače site, a cultural and historic complex consisting of the remains of a Roman Palace with fortifications and ancient Christian basilica nesting in a sheltered bay.

• An exceptional cultural and historical heritage dating back to the eras of the Illirian tribes, the Roman Empire and the Republic of Dubrovnik. Today, Mljet island is characterized by stable human settlement living in complete harmony with nature.

Lakes:
The world-renowned Lakes of Mljet consist of the Great Lake, covering an area of 145 ha, with a maximum depth of 46 m. The Small Lake has an area of 24 ha and a maximum depth of 29 m. The natural secrets of both lakes have attracted many scientists over the years, as well as other nature lovers from a wide range of professions and personal interests.

The rich vegetation of the island, especially in the area of the national Park, explains why Mljet is also known as the Green Island.

The Benedictine monks allowed people to inhabit the area of today's National Park until as late as the 19th century.
 
Mljet Croatia Mljet Island Croatia Mljet National Park Mljet hotels Mljet accommodation Mljet apartments Dubrovnik Mljet travel agency Lotos Dubrovnik Riviera
 
Today's population mainly live from agriculture growing grapes and olives, and tourism that enabled the development of new villages along the coast.
 
There are country roads from Polače and Pomena to both the Great Lake and the Small Lake. Visitors who come on organized one-day trips must stay with the group and route, while individual visitors may visit the park as they wish - as long as they comply with National Park regulations.
