Mljet

Mljet is 23 miles from Dubrovnik and is the southernmost of the larger islands; it covers an area of 62 square miles (100 square km). Over two-thirds of the island is covered by forest with the western part (about a third of the island) declared one of Croatia’s eight National Parks. Visitors must pay an entrance fee for the park, and adhere to certain rules.

Mljet

The main places on Mljet are Sobra, Pomena, which probably has the most tourist facilities, Polace and Govedjari. Babino Polje is the administrative centre of the island.

The Lonely Planet guidebook calls Mljet “the most seductive island in the Adriatic”. Prince Charles has visited the island twice and was enchanted by its beauty on his visits.
