Mljet Island : Holiday Accommodation
The lush forest covered national park island of Mljet is one of the greenest islands on the Adriatic. With its verdant vegetation and crystal clear water it is fast becoming a popular destination for those who like to be at one with nature. Reached by boat or catamaran from Dubrovnik, it's a smashing retreat for those who enjoy walking, hiking and sailing. One of the main attractions of Mljet are the two inland salt water lakes, Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero, both joined to the sea by a narrow canal. You can walk around these lakes on pathways shaded by pine trees. For something different, you can take a small boat to the tiny island in the middle of Veliko Jezero and visit the former 12th century Benedictine monastery - albeit it is now a restaurant serving local cusine and a popular stopping off point for those exploring this unique and tranquil spot.
