Take the boat from the main port. You have to get there about an hour before to get tickets. It goes at 8am some days and 9.15 others so you need to check. The trip takes about an hour and a half and you want to get off at the second stop on the island. There are places to hire... More

What a lovely place to swim. If you are confident and careful, leave the beach and find a secluded spot. Leave your bathing suit at home. There is so much privacy! Gorgeous turquoise warm salt water lakes. For swimming enthusiasts, it is a dream come true! Great cycling as well and lovely views of hills, forests and lakes. I will... More

We spent 3 nights in Polace on Mljet. We took the catamaran ferry from Dubrovnik, arriving at 11am. Polace is basically one street on the beach front with various restaurants, bakeries, mini markets, a cash machine , bars and accommodation premises. We stayed in the Apartment Radulj. It was an excellent choice with very friendly owners, extremely clean rooms and... More

While on a sail trip with Huck Finn, we stopped at Mijet Island for a mountain bike ride which was pretty challenging. We also swam in the two salt water lakes. Mjet is beautiful!

My boyfriend and I visited this island during a weeks stay in Dubrovnik. We caught the ferry over from Gruz harbour which was around 240 kunar for the both of us. The boat trip over was fine and took about 90 min. The only downside was the early start being an 8am ferry and having to get to the ticket... More

An hour and a half ferry ride from Dubrovnik to this national forest with a 12th century monastery on a little island. The monastery is small and not particularly inspiring, but the swimming nearby is in pristine waters. A lovely day if you have the time.

Marvelous island with the two beautiful lakes, both solty, and the smaller one (Maloe Jezero) is less deep, and is always much warmer than the sea of the second lake. There is a beach suitable for children too (again - it's not deep), but if you swim well and not afraid of +21C water - take a longer ride alond... More

This is a beautiful island. We stayed in Polace, a small fishing village with some excellent restaurants. The view from our apartment over the Adriatic was fantastic and we could watch yachts coming into port from our balcony. The National Park is much publicised on here and rightly so, it is great to swim in the lakes. We walked around... More

We enjoyed a very nice day relaxing in Polace, and the catamaran trip there and back was also very relaxing. The lakes are a joy to swim in and to walk around when the sun is out, and it's a great place to get away from the crowds. However, the natural scenery is not as special or unique as other... More

A nice break from hustle and bustle of traveling all over the place, its a lovely park like island with very few inhabitants. While lovely, there is nothing spectacular to see and if pressed for time, you can skip it.
