Island of Mljet Tips (3)

Miljet by ourselves

We make the excursion to the Island of Miljet by ourselves.

There is a ferry that you can take from the New Harbour of Dubrovnik and takes a couple of hours to the island. We had a walk the afternoon before to the harbour and take a look to the time departure. Then the next morning we arrived like 45 minutes before they opened the booking office, because they told us there will be a long queue, and they where right... There's a bus from the center of Dubrovnik that take you to the harbour (1€)

Miljet is and island to spend all day long. There is a Natural Park with two natural lakes inside the island and a little island inside one of the lakes. In that island there is a nice Monastery.

When you arrive to the island they sell you a ticket for the entrance of the Park and the boat that take you to the island. There are mini-bus to go from one place to other, but there is information of how long is walking from one place to other, so you can make a plan acording to your physical conditions to discover the island.

Another choice is rent a bycicle.

Don't forget your towel and swimming costume, you can take a bath almost everywhere... and be careful not to loose your ferry back. There's a couple of restaurants, but no place to spend the night.

The island of Mljet

this is such a beautiful island that I will show your some more pics in a travelogue !!
You have to buy an entrance ticket where you arrive with the ferry boat. This ticket allows you to go (and come back) with little busses, your entrance to the National park and a boattrip to the island of virgin Mary in the middle of one of the lakes.
Mljet is an elongated island, with an average width of 3 km, 37 km long. It is an Island of great diversity and contrast, and "Mljet" National Park covers his northwestern part with an area of 5.375 ha of protected land and surrounding sea. The salt lakes are a unique geological and oceanographic phenomenon of worldwide importance. They originated approximately 10,000 years ago and, until the Christian era, they were freshwater lakes. Some endemic Dalmatian plants can only be found on the rocky coast of the island. The woods on Mljet gently descend all the way to thesurface of the lakes, thus creating animage of unspoiled nature. The little isle of St. Mary in the Great lake, with an ancient Benedictine monastery and a church dating from 12th century. The small island is the symbol of the entire island, because of its exceptional aesthetic image and strong cultural and spiritual dimension.
The world-renowned Lakes of Mljet consist of the Great Lake, covering an area of 145 ha, with a maximum depth of 46 m. The Small Lake has an area of 24 ha and a maximum depth of 29 m. The rich vegetation of the island, especially in the area of the national Park, explains why Mljet is also known as the Green Island.

MLJET island & national park....

MLJET island & national park. If you have enough time take a trip (one or more days) to this heaven on earth. You'll find there two salt lakes (in fact very deep bays) with a tiny island on the bigger one. Yes, that's right: on the island of Mljet there's a lake and on the lake there's another island of Saint Mary. Something really special! Not to be missed!
-beautiful nature
-very good hotel Odisej (see accomodation)
-rent a bike & boat
-great walking paths
-great swimming & underwater world
