Croatia charter destination – Mljet

The most beautiful Croatia charter destination is island Mljet. It was named the “green island” because of its rich Mediterranean vegetation. Numerous forests cover 70% of the island’s surface. The northwestern half of the island is the very first National Park of Adriatic. Mljet Island is a place to go to meet locals, spend time in nature, and explore uninhibited places. The island has rich flora and fauna. The island has  two connected sweet-salty lakes, clean sea, cultural and historical heritage. Mljet is popular because of its astonishing indented coast with extraordinary sandy shoreline and numerous cliffs and islets. Mljet island is home to another island. On the Great Lake, there is a small island named after Saint Mary. The island contains a former Benedictine monastery dating from the 12th century. It’s now a reasonably-priced restaurant.  The most interesting attraction that you must visit on the island is the Ulysses cave. It is famous because, allegedly, Ulysses spent 7 years in that cave, watching the open sea while mourning for his beloved wife and home.

The seaside villages of Pomena, Polace, Sobra and Saplunara attract the most visitors. Saplunara beach, a beautiful sandy lagoon, is an ideal place for you to relax and unwind. We  recommend you to hire a bike and explore this peaceful and lush island. If you are coming to the park during the summer, don’t miss the opportunity to swim or scuba dive. You can organise other sports activities such as windsurfing and diving in hotel Odisej Mljet.

For local specialities, try the makaruli which is homemade macaroni with goat cheese and fried garlic or  prandispanj  a traditional cake.
