This is one of the islands you shouldn’t miss if you plan to visit the highlights of the Adriatic by bike.
To reach complete silence, rest and relaxation, you should reach island Mljet by ferry from Dubrovnik or Pelješac peninsula.
Mljet is Dalmatia’s most southern, most verdant and, some would argue, most beautiful island. More than 70 percent of this thin, 37km-long one-road idyll is covered in pine forest. A third of it is national park. Before Tito chose Istria’s Brijuni as his place for leisure, luxury and safari animals, Mljet was a prime candidate for the prestigious role. And though it never got to accommodate giraffes, Mljet remained a natural escape, underdeveloped and underpopulated.
According to legend, Odysseus was so enchanted by Mljet that he stayed here for seven years.
Locals tend to stay for the day, arriving in someone’s boat in the morning, spending the time cycling and swimming, before heading back for dinner in Dubrovnik.
