Enjoy the Beauty of Mljet on a Croatia Sailing Holiday

By MedSailors Crew published on 18 November 2015

Known as Croatia’s greenest island, Mljet is a perfect stop-off on any sailing holiday. With an ancient name which translates as ‘honey isle’, it has everything you would expect from somewhere with such eco-friendly credentials – crystal-clear seas, a stunning shoreline, lush Mediterranean forests and a lot of underwater wildlife to spot and admire.

The island’s relative proximity to Dubrovnik makes it a haven for both locals and tourists alike, and with more than two-thirds of the island a designated National Park, it’s not hard to see why. Two of the most famous features on Mljet are Veliko Jezero and Malo Jezero, which translate as Big Lake and Small Lake. The unspoilt beauty of the two and the peace and tranquillity they provide are a big draw for those enjoying a Croatia sailing break.

Food and drink lovers will be well served by the island’s wealth of locally produced wine, cheese and olives, whilst adventure seekers will love hiring a bike to explore the stunning landscape Mljet has to offer.

And after you’ve exhausted all the beauty on show, you can retreat to the peace and seclusion of Polace town. Situated in a sheltered bay on the northern coast of the island, Polace is the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down.
