Your first stop will be beautiful sandy beach Saplunara, on Island of Mljet. You’ll spend some time here swimming, sunbathing or snorkeling, approximately 45 minutes to an hour, and after that you’ll be on your way to National Park or Odysseus Cave, as per your preference! This will be the time to make a decision which way you would like to go because it’s hard to fit both of these stunning locations into one visit. Below you’ll get to read descriptions of both National Park and Odysseus Cave so you can make your choice based on information you like better.
3. Mljet National Park
National Park Mljet is the oldest seaside park on the whole Mediterranean coast. Here you can enjoy the untouched nature and self-sustainable ecosystem. National Park earned its status in 1960. due to extensive biodiversity and interesting history. Flora and fauna of this place will take your breath away. You will have an opportunity to swim in Small and Big lake! There’s one fun part where big lake ‘pushes’ you into the small lake through a channel or passage where water runs quickly! Local children always compete who can stay longer in this passage in between two lakes. It’s gorgeous to walk around the lakes as well, and there is an interesting tiny island of St. Mary situated in the Big Lake. There you can find an old church and Benedictine monastery from 12. century, so this is another option for you to visit as it’s unique due to its specific location. You will have approximately 3 hours to explore National Park before you move on to the next unique location!
4. Odysseus Cave
Story of Odysseus Cave takes place 3000 years back when ancient hero Odyssey was returning back to Itaca from his numerous travels. Somewhere near Mljet he got into a big storm and his boat hit the sharp rocks of ‘Ogiran’. He needed to swim to the nearest shore to save his life. In the middle of the wavy sea, right in front of him, big hole opened and he swam into it. That was the entrance to the cave where he finally found safety. However, nymph Calypso lived on this romantic island and she kept Odyssey there for seven years by seducing him and promising him immortality if he stayed. Odyssey only got released when Zeus ordered Calypso to do so. She obeyed the god’s orders, but once her lover was gone, Calypso died of sadness. This is how the legend ends, but fun facts about the cave go on. This specific cave became home to the Mediterranean monk seal – one of the most endangered mammal species in the world. Seems that nobody wants to leave the cave as its beauty is out of this world.
4. Secret Beach Marculeti
After the visit of National Park or Odysseus Cave (depends which option you chose), you’ll be onto the next adventure! Beautiful bay of Marčuleti is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Sea scooters that are on your disposal for the day are fun way to snorkel and just have fun on the sea. Marčuleti is special as it is completely secluded and very hard to reach by land. You will enjoy in the gorgeous colors of the sea and trees in the bay. After approximately hour and a half, you’ll be on your way back to Dubrovnik with additional stop for swimming or sunbathing. Discovering gorgeous Mljet and then Adriatic coast from the seaside will definitely stick with you for a long time. This is an adventure filled with fun and beautiful views that you most certainly deserve on your vacation.
